Hey. Look. Alarums & Excursions #41 (1979) for $31.
The only listing for the zine to be found on eBay.
I can't even pirate myself an issue.
What's the d% on getting some early A&E issues scanned into PDF form? Maybe Lee Gold could even sell them via RPGNow. I don't want to sound like a whiny, suckling grog-wannabe here, but it kind of bothers me that the only way to have access to years and years of this material is to (a) be really old and already have them OR (b) spend way too much dough trying to piece together a sad little collection of rusty-stapled, barely legible zines.
This is the fucking INFORMATION AGE!!!!
All of this stuff can/should be preserved in PDF format.
Letting it just rot away in a box in your attic is doing a major disservice to the whole D&D zeitgeist.
You might as well be skullfucking Wormy.
It's just wrong, man.
