Over at Dragonsfoot, member Galadrin has translated the text of an article about M.A.R. Barker and Tékumel from the online edition of the German magazine Der Spiegel. The article provides little new information for long-time Tékumel aficionados, but it's still terrific to see an article about the Professor and his creation in a mainstream news magazine. Of far more interest to me was the gallery of accompanying images, which includes several of Barker himself (I've only rare seen photographs of him) at various conventions and with other figures of note to the old school community (such as Dave Arneson).
Check it out.
