    Hi, I'm Zenopus from the Zenopus Archives blog, which is dedicated to the original D&D Basic Set (aka Holmes Basic) and the writings of J. Eric Holmes. I contributed a bibliography of Holmes' writings to the Tales of Peril book. I've just started a new blog series, a read-through of the book called "Tales of Peril Book Club". Here are the posts so far:

    Tales of Peril book club - intro/index
    Tales of Peril - Cover Art
    Tales of Peril - Dust Jacket Flaps - content on the dust jacket flaps, including a larger scan of the author photo
    Tales of Peril - Front Matter - title page, table of contents, introduction by grodog, etc
    XP grodog gave XP for this post
