Happy Birthday, Dr Holmes

I cannot believe that I almost failed to note the birthday of John Eric Holmess, born this day in 1930. 

Fortunately, Zach over at Zenopus Archives reminded me of it with his own post. As anyone who reads this blog regularly knows, the 1977 Holmes-edited Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set was my introduction to the hobby and I retain an immense fondness for it. Without the rulebook contained within that box, I might never have taken up this hobby that has brought me so much pleasure for most of my life. I feel I owe a debt to Dr Holmes that I can never repay. His memory should be celebrated, especially on this day.
