    One thought on “Delta Green: Extraordinary Renditions”

    1. For those unfamiliar with Delta Green, I would say that they collect the bleakest, darkest, most soul-eroding windows into modern Lovecraftian horror. Unsanctioned tradecraft in a never ending war against the unimaginable horrors that lurk behind the corners of reality, trying to hold back the tide, one sanity breaking battle at a time. Needless to say, agents never survive unscathed, if they survive at all."Extraordinary Renditions" is the fruit of the Kickstarter for the previous Delta Green s [...]

    2. Bought kindle book and read in one sitting. Haven't done that in a while. H. P. L.would be very proud of all these stories.

    3. Another fine collection of Delta Green tales. I have two favorites from the collection, the first was Passing the Torch which features a creature that I have always felt is underutilized in the Call of Cthulhu game system. This story features its ferocity and capabilities and should be a must-read for anybody wishing to run the game. The second was The Lucky Ones which sums up nicely the horror of the mythos. I also enjoyed the locale of St. Alban's used at one point in the story. I have been th [...]

    4. I read this by headlamp on a campsite over two with a fire burning and no other light but the moon, stars and the glowing eyes of woodland and other creatures. That atmosphere made the book even more enjoyable. Until I tried to sleep. This is a collection of short stories that has many more hits than misses. That is all you can ask for in a collection. This was my first Delta Green after reading every work of HPL's (H.P. Lovecraft for those of you who still think you are special in the universe) [...]

    5. 3.75 stars. This is an uneven collection, but there are a few excellent stories within. Favorites included The Color of Dust by Laurel Halbany; Le Pain Maudit by Jeff C. Carte; Utopia by David Farnell; Morning in America by James Lowden (my favorite); A Question of Memory by Greg Stolze; Passing the Torch by Adam Scott Glancy; Boxes Inside Boxes by Dennis Detwiller; and The Lucky Ones by John Acott Tynes.The above stories best captured the feel and flavor of Delta Green without being pastiches o [...]

    6. DG: ER is another fantastic look into the operations of Delta Green through out various time periods. It is nice to see some of the cowboy ops that predate the Alphonse Cell days of the 90's and even some contemporary DG ops.Not all of the stories are perfect as with any anthology but if you are a fan of the setting this is a valuable addition to the lore.

    7. Great collection of short stories in the horror genre. My favorite would have to be "Morning in America". The Delta Green universe is a companion to that of HPLovecraft's Cthulhu mythos usually set in modern times.K

    8. THE TALES ARE GREAT BUT WEIRD, THEY AREHello, some really great stories in this one and just a couple of so-so's. All in all, a very interesting and enjoyable read. Thanks.

    9. Some of the stories in this collection are incredible, unfortunately the majority of it is not of the quality of previous Delta Green offerings
