Capsule Review by Scott Shafer on 08/30/98. Genre tags: none
If you've ever wanted to know more about the Mi-Go, well then this is your book. This small chapbook contains information that just didn't make it into the huge Delta Green volume, or information that has been discovered/written since Delta Green was published. There is a lot of evocative, and horrific stuff in here. Things that can serve to give these beasts even more of a horrific edge.
My only complaint is that I wanted more. As meaty as the text is, it raises many more disturbing questions.
The production design is top notch, and it nicely echoes the original Delta Green book in its design.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but it was over much too soon! Next time I wish they'd lock Dennis Detwiller in a closet for six months, and then read what he comes up with. But the same problems will remain, as many questions as this new pile of material would answer, Dennis would raise even more horrific possibilities. These books echo the mythos themselves in that they can offer definitive answers, but they continue to lead you further down a road of madness.
If you like Delta Green, then you will enjoy this book. But be warned, this book contains mysteries that it might be better to not even contemplate.
Style: 5 (Excellent!)
