Here is a nice piece on its 60th anniversary by Ethan Gilsdorf.
A blog wherein I scribble about various old school fantasy role-playing games (Classic D&D and AD&D, Call of Cthulhu, BRP, Elric!/Stormbringer, MERP, etc.) and a few newer ones (Mythras, Crypts & Things, 5e D&D, Adventures in Middle-Earth, etc.). I also sometimes write about fantasy and science-fiction films, novels, art, and the like.
