I mentioned in yesterday's post about The Sword of Shannara that my first encounter with the book was through a friend's mother, who was a member of the Science Fiction Book Club. Serendipitously, the next issue #77 of Dragon (September 1983) in my queue for this feature included an advertisement from SFBC.
Fantasy Wargaming. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that a book like that would be included in an ad targeted at Dragon audiences, yet I am. Fantasy Wargaming is, at best, a footnote in the history of the hobby. To see it sold through a mass market mail order book club like the SFBC is remarkable. Oh, how times have changed!
