  1. No, he's alive and well, and shares some interesting history in the interview. Five living dedicatees in a row! (Arneson was alive when we did issue 2, but alas no longer.)

    Thanks for the shout out, James! We greatly appreciate it, and your past and future contributions to the mag as well.

    Best,

    Calithena

  2. I so want to get these back issues, but until Lulu stops actively raping Canadian customers on their shipping rates, alas, I must wait...

  3. I understand your woes, Badger King. I would love love love to order this issue of Fight On! (and the one before, and the one before, plus lots of other OSR titles...) but Lulu's performance has taken a rather bad turn here in Europe (if it would just be shipping rates - but incomplete shipments, up to whole missing shipments, are inacceptable), starting when they moved their printing operation from Spain to the UK.

    I am so glad that Swords & Wizardry and Knockspell are in regular distribution now, so I at least can find those.

    Word. But then again, we're toxic to Lulu's business plan, since we don't want to pay their outrageous shipping costs. T'would be great if these magazines were in FLGS distribution.
