About 18 years ago I borrowed the Swords Trilogy book(s) from Peter Melman.  I’m just now getting around to reading it.  Although I bought it for the Kindle.  So I’m not even reading the copy that I borrowed all those years ago.  I’m not sure how I will get this book back to Peter.

Anyway it’s good stuff.  It was written before the Elric stuff, and I can see the seeds of Elric and those works in these books.

Nice to be reading again.

Don’t ever loan me anything.

Finished up this Appendix N book by Jack Vance and it is absolutely fantastic.  Loved it; I see so much of what went into D&D here; direct stuff.  The way magic works, the items and so much more.  Then I see it reinvisioned in DCC; the cheap value of life itself.

I had never read this.   How can this be?  It was such a great read.  Highly recommend for anyone who plays D&D.
