Well, this isn't on the scale of the 2nd woody she found, but my wife came home yesterday with yet another treasure.
I've been going through my extras to list them, and I came across a 2E Complete Fighter's and Thief's Handbooks bagged together. I put them into a "to be checked" pile, and my wife saw them. She commented that she had gotten them for me last year at a little book store and left them on my Sort pile, but she actually left them on the Trade pile by mistake. She claims she paid $5 for them. Considering she pinches a penny till Lincoln begs for mercy, I have to believe her. Not a great haul, until I unbagged the two and out falls a brown Ringbearer!
I swear, if she tried, she MIGHT be able to crap an ST1. I should send her over to the UK for a week. Or to Detroit.

Wilcox used the same twist-in-the-tail that van Vogt borrowed later, too...).


Thanks for this info! It looks like TVTL600Y was re-printed in a collection ('Skylife') in 2000, so I should be able to track it down (40 used copies on Amazon starting at $0.40...)

This just arrived in the mail:


** expired eBay auction **


Its a tournament module used at Michicon IX, 1980 and officially approved by the Metro Detroit Gamers.  It looks and feels like it was produced the same way Fazzlewood was - the typed font is the same, etc.

That tourney item looks like a neat little item.  Pretty much anything from MDG is likely to be worth something simply due to reasonance with Tsojconth and Fazzlewood.  The price looks really good, probably would have gone for a few times that if it had been cited here.  Congrats...

Yes I agree, that is a cool win Mark. :)

I threw a token bid at it. I'm sure it might have gone for much more if posted.

THAT has to be the coolest thing I've seen.  I really need to study up on the Cthulhu stuff, I've been casually building my personal collection but haven't put the effort into learning the ins-and-outs of what is actually out there for sael.

Nice win, I didn't even know about this Pagan Publishing item.  
I'll make a note to add this to my search list...

Thanks guys.  Pagan has several very early, limited releases.  IIRC, all of them are details over on the Pagan product db @ Yog-Sothoth - YSDC Front Page

I found this to be very unique, if perhaps not very collectable. :)
