Ooh Shiny!

Cubicle 7 Entertainment is producing a roleplaying game based on the award-winning Laundry series (The Atrocity Archives, The Jennifer Morgue, and the forthcoming The Fuller Memorandum) by the even-more-award-winning Charles Stross, and uses the also-award-winning Basic Roleplaying System (Call Of Cthulhu) by Chaosium Inc.

(There's more of the announcement to be had, including a fairly tasty cover image that I didn't want to grab or hotlink.)

I've mentioned in previous book reviews that I'm not really a Lovecraft fan but the Laundry series is good enough (and tongue-in-cheek enough) to overcome my resistance to some of the source DNA. This is pretty tempting to pick, despite my deep suspicion that I'd never play it.
