Is the new Miskatonic U. an improvement on the old one? Because the old one was a little weak.

It's the new one, much improved although perhaps now slightly too weird. You can hardly move for bumping into some kind of ancient sorcerer.

I'll probably say a few lines about each book but I didn't have the time at lunch today.

The coolest thing I read was undoubtedly the 1950's tour of Berlin.
