This sounds very exciting. A masterwork and a legacy. I'm not sure what if anything I could do to help this along but I would certainly like to be included as one wanting a copy and willing to pay in advance for the privilage.

It seems like, to do justice to this work, it should be produced with an eye toward general availability, but is there any reason a limited number of 1st print (or 1st reprinted) copies couldn't be made available?

I hope that color copy survived.

Excellent work PM-Knight

I emailed you, PM_Knight. While I am not as esteemed as Frank, I am willing to do whatever I can to help. As I am sure others are. Exciting, and also sad news at the same time... a legacy is never lost when it is preserved. We can do this.

Go ahead, stick your neck out. ;>

But 'steamed'? I'm quite calm.  :P

Paul, I'll be in touch.

My four brothers will be by shortly to accept their fate. Good thing we look the same...

Personal 'differences' aside, and on the basis that we buyers have absolutely no say in whatever happens in the real world of publishing, I'd be more inclined to want to see what Frank could bring to the table with something like this. I just prefer his talent for the descriptive and the breadth of his vocabulary, and I find his style of writing more absorbing and easier to go with than the bulk of what is offered today.

This is a talent that both Gary and Rob share also, and one that the newer generations of writers seem to have missed. Be that differences in education or the introduction of computing, whatever. Great command of English is, for me, a big part of that 'old school' feel.

personally think this is AMAZING. i would love to see this become available to purchase. i can only hope you guys can sort something out!

awesome work PM-K

anything i can do to help, am always willing, though i cant do squat really :)

a kinda statless booklet isnt without its advantages either really. if i was DMing that, it wouldnt phase me at all and its real easy to format into something usable, for instance, to like what frank and tim use at con's, which i think is a superb format.

Sorry, can't comment, as I'm still unconscious from falling out of my chair after reading the post above Al's.

Hey, you've got talent.  It is stunning to me today how fewer and fewer young people have quality command of the English language.   :?

Hell, I had to go look up 'curmudgeon'. I thought it was a verb.
Seriously though, there is a rhythm and elegance to the way a lot of the early TSR stuff is written that allows the reader to absorb what they are reading with little effort. It is something that the modern age has begun to lose, right across the spectrum of the written language. Sad, but true.
