Happy New Year fellow RPG collectors!

Since the 1990s I have been slowly compiling detailed notes on anything that was published for RuneQuest and Glorantha. I have all of the core material pretty well covered and have mostly moved on to rarer items.
One range of material in particular I am trying to track down are older issues of the Wild Hunt APA, starting in 1978 up through the late 80s. Thus I am mainly interested in issues 30-100 or so.
If anyone can help me out I would be most appreciative. What I do for my research is read through each issue and take some notes on the Glorantha/RuneQuest material therein. PDFs are great for this, although I know of none for the Wild Hunt.
If someone was within a day's drive of Ann Arbor, MI I would be happy to arrange a time to sit down and read through the issues. Meeting up at a convention is also possible, as I attend both Gen Con and Origins, plus a few smaller shows.

If you are wondering which magazines/fanzines I have already documented:

List of Magazines
Magazines are where completists eventually face their doom. This list is by no means complete. If I, or one of my co-conspirators, do not own the issue it probably is not listed. Please let me know what I’m missing and your selling price. Foreign language magazines are not included.

Lee Gold has pdf copies of all issues of Alarums & Excursions available for $2 an issue: https://www.conchord.org/xeno/aande.html

I have issues #1-30 from her. They are OCR'd, though rather poorly. Text searching brings up hits for Runequest in issues #26 and #29. It's possible there are other hits that aren't OCR'd correctly.

#26 (Sep 1977) has a contribution by Steve Perrin, with a section on Runequest, the new game he is working on. #28 has a few replies to him that they are interested. I'd quote the material from #26 here except that the OCR is so poor that it is mostly unreadable. It's about 11 sentences in length, plus one at the intro to his article.

I have access to issues 1-150 of Alarums & Excursions and have been going through them one at a time for about the last 9 months. Thanks Zenopus.
