of the Grodog's mind
This district of the Dreaming City can be likened to the
Foreign Quarter of Allan Grohe's mind: it contains a hubbub of material drawn from the
vast reaches of the Multiverse, and suffers not only from a lack of planning, but from the
accumulation of ages of bric-a-brac. For reference, read my essay
and Octagons, Dust and Stuff."
Links Elsewhere and Elsewhen
Here are some links to other web sites that I find
useful. Perhaps you will also.
- Dragon Con, my favorite
gaming, sci-fi, comic, and general fun convention, can be reached through the link.
Located in Atlanta, Georgia, each June or July, I've never had a bad time there (and I was
at the first, very small one). An old Nomads of
the Time Streams friend, Paul
Cashman, is the web master.
- Check out the Grohe Homepage, which, so far as I know,
bears no direct genealogical relationship to me, although the company shares my surname, which I find
rather nifty. Grohe produces environmentally-friendly plumbing products, FYI.
- Just in case you don't have cable, you can get
world-wide, up-to-the-minute accurate weather forecasts from The Weather Channel. In case you're planning to
visit me in the near future, and wondering what to pack, feel free to check out
Santa Clara's current
State Steam Tunnels
Bazarre of the Bizarre
This area of Imrryr just contains various links to
retailers who have, for one reason or another, caught my eye. Most of the retailers on my
page are in other areas, in close proximity to subjects near and dear to my heart
(Necronomicon Press, for example, is in the HPL stuff on my games page).
The links below
just didn't have a convenient subject segue, but are worth checking out nonetheless.
- My friend Norm Hood's Chimera
Publishing sells good fantasy art (Gould, Matthews, Olivia,
Morrisey, Giger, etc.).
- My favorite book dealer is Ziesing Books, hosted by Mark and Cindy
Ziesing. They're great. Buy their books, even if you can get them from Wal-Mart or some
other Evil Corporation for less $. You don't really want to support Evil do you? (Reminds
me of Time Bandits, "Don't touch that--it's
- I've dealt with several rare and out-of-print
games dealers in my time, including the following:
Random Name Generators
Pages of Family and Friends
These are actually people who I know, and am still
willing to admit to such in public (which in the case of some of these expatriots from
Yuggoth is quite an admission). You decide which is most horrifying .
. . .
- Aaron Harris has resurrected (or would that
be reincarnated?) his web site, The
Mad Coyote's Ongoing Gambit. Perhaps he'll actually
manage to put some good content up this time :-)
- My sister, Alison Grohe, has built a Sailor
Moon web site. She has created some original drawings, and
is willing to post fan art, fan fiction, etc. Contact her at SailorMoon_630@yahoo.com.
- Matt Cowger's site at Tenebrous
Technologies is a fun-filled stroll down memory lane--if you
were a serial killer in another life, or perhaps are now, but just don't
remember why it is that you wake up all covered in mud, muck, and small
intestines, from time-to-time.
- The Library of Babylon, the page of my friend Chris Gross, with
history and computer resources, lots of other neat links, and other signs of intelligent
and The Modern Word are
by my friend Allen Ruch. It features some roleplaying games material, lots of cool info on
some excellent metafictional authors, and, dare I say it, more quails.
