If someone did buy one.  Did it have the distinct odor of cigarette smoke?  Thanks.

The Mav is old-school all the way, especially where boardgames/wargames are concerned. I'm not sure exactly where he stands with RPGs (other than perhaps The Fantasy Trip).

I bought my copy of that item directly from him a few years ago ... don't remember any sort of smoky odor or other problem.

BTW, for anyone with questions, Mav hangs out at Boardgame Geek quite a bit and could be easily PM'ed over there. His ID is ... wait for it ... TheMaverick. :wink:

If you own lots of Space Gamers, it's a good index to have.

I bought the index direct from the Mav shortly after it came out. The information found in it is accurate and useful. How useful depends on what you want to find out.

My only complaint about the book is its formatting and production value. I didn't expect it to be a work of art, but with a few more hours of time spent on layout it could be a far better product. The font size is large, with too much white space on each page. Tighter formatting and a slight reduction in font size would probably cut the page count almost in half. This book is currently hundreds of pages and well over an inch thick. It would probably save a lot in postage costs if reformatted too.
