I came across a fanzine directory in an old Dungeoneer listing Len Lakofka's The Wizard... curiously it had no subscription rate.  I wonder if it made it to print?  If so, do they ever see the light of day, err, ebay?   Thanks in advance, everyone :)

Yes, it did make it into print.  No, I have never seen them on Ebay.  There is one posted up on the Tome:

I think I have Issues #3 and #4 that I picked up from Tim Kask.

Anyone remember what the Ebay auction for these sold at?  I remember presterjor on Ebay - he sold a lot of good stuff and wish I had bought more of them.

I have at least a couple auctions saved from eBay sales in the 2005-2006-ish timeframes.  Paul Stormberg won one batch of them for ~$50 per issue IIRC.

IIRC, this was one of the first fanzines to make it into PDF at the turn of the millenium. I remember picking it up along with White Dwarf Issue #1 and that crappy copy of ST1 that's still doing the rounds.

Anyone know how many issues were produced of The Wizard?

I'm only aware of Issue #1. Certainly the only issue I ever found in PDF form. In fact, the PDF is made of that exact same issue as is on ToT website, becaise the deterioration to the holes and the coffie stain above the lowermost hole are identical. Go figure?

I thought I posted a contents list a while back but I can't find it now.  I remember that Wheeler from The Companions also had an article in one of them too.
