Default Reading through the Suppressed Transmissions

I just wanted to mention that over at RPGNet I've started a thread in which I will read through all 300 Suppressed Transmission columns - in the hope of generating more interest for the series, boost sales for the existing collections, and hopefully help increase them to the point where further collections become viable. Further comments and discussions are very much welcome.

(But really, only 67 sales of the PDF of the first collection, and 56 of the second - despite being out for months? That's rather pitiful...)

I guess High Weirdness just doesn't have many dedicated fans :/

It's a fine idea, JH... I hope it works.

Is there anything in the collections that wasn't in Pyramid 2?

They are expanded with footnotes.

I already have the original softbound releases. Was anything added to the e23 releases?

Not that I'm aware of.

You can thank me later, once you have read through it. :p

Well, after the first 13 readings have been posted, sales of the first PDF have increased by nine and of the second by seven - so I am having some effect.

Let's hope that the total tally will be high enough to justify further PDF compilations by the time I finish this...
