What the Critics Say
"Cthulhu Through the Ages is a fantastic idea…It’s a gateway to many well-written sourcebooks and sources of new adventures for you and your gaming crew. "—Diehard Gamefan
"A great aid for running Call of Cthulhu scenarios in different settings… what makes this book so useful is that Call of Cthulhu is a game of investigation that involves ancient tomes of magic. Investigators may uncover timeless horrors known to the Ancient Romans or medieval scholars, and game keepers may want to run scenarios in different time periods."—Geeks-a-go-go.

Why is it in black and white? The pdf is in color and the ACTUAL book in black and white (this information is very conveniently hidden in "Other deatils") . POD (print on demand) was fast, it's great for the environment and all (love that), but I feel like I did not get what I paid for. This information should be written all over the online purchase page in my opinion.
Great book for price, has good information of the periods but you will still have to do some of your own research in to the era.
