Quantique & Eiglophian Press Archives

Since returning from our trip to the North Shore of Lake Superior more than a month ago, I've been side-lined with a shoulder injury and offline far more than has been the norm.  In that time several of the blogs that I used to look forward to like Sean's Bite the Bullette and the very promising Tremulous Antennae have evaporated or been deleted for whatever reason.  I know that I'm not the only one who'll miss those blogs.

G. Benedicto's very cool, ulta-weird blog Quantique was also one of the recent withdrawals from the blogosphere.  All three of G. Benedicto's wonderful blogs have gone missing.  Suddenly and with no warning, so I hope that he's okay, and whatever the reasons, it was and is, his decision to make and I respect that, and wish him all the best of luck in all future endeavors.  I'll miss Quantique.  It was the absolutely right kind of Weirdness, and it's starting to feel a bit lonlier without it's company.  But all is not necessarily lost.  Cyclopeatron is hosting PDF archives of G. Benedicto's posts (minus reader comments) that were compiled by blog-reader Restless.  You can download the PDF Archives of Eiglophian Press and Quantique at Cyclopetaron's blog.  Thank you for doing this Restless and Cyclopeatron!

So, I'm regretfully deleting the links to these defunct blogs from the list of Blogs We Read.  I had no idea that by missing so much time that I'd also miss-out on the last moments of these fun and much-appreciated blogs.  But this does seem to be a natural part of the overall blogging process.  People come and people go, blogs surge and fade and life can sometimes intervene.  I just wanted to say Thank You to each of these wonderfully creative people who shared their imagination, ideas and enthusiasm with us all.  I, for one, feel lucky to have crossed their respective paths, if only out on that there internet-thing.  Good luck and Gods Bless.  Maybe we'll meet again.  Weirder things have happened...

And hey, at least Planet Algol, From the Sorcerer's Skull, and Urutsk are still going strong...and Raggi's Weird Empire is growing, so there's still plenty of hope and life in the Weird end of the pond yet...and Riskail is only just getting started...

  1. Last I heard, Greg's doing fine and working on a few campaigns. I think he's just retired from the blog-o-sphere.

    I had some contact with him back in September.

  2. Cool. I miss Quantique. I hope his campaigns go well and that he's having a lot of fun. Blogging is a weird endeavor...

  3. I don't understand why people delete their blogs suddenly and without warning. Ah well.

  4. Perhaps it was time to move on. A clean break can help get things moving again, especially creatively...
