OSR Good 'Modern-Feeling' Adventures?

Retreater

What are some good, 'modern-feeling' adventures that would be appropriate for OSR play? These can also be classic, TSR-produced adventures that have aged well.
By 'modern-feeling' I'm looking for ones that have some internal logic, diverse encounters, no "gotcha" traps, some elements of role-play, etc.
I'd prefer to stay away from LofFP (because everything I've seen has been distasteful). Bonus points for adventures that are especially well organized.

Well organised and great back story. Well done encounters (The "siege of Sukiskyn" near the beginning is pretty epic). Should take the group from 1st level to about 6th level. I consider it a mini-campaign with plenty of hours of play.

Warning: there's a cursed bag of devouring in the final treasure that you may not want to use (I didn't use it).

Edit: The recommended level is 2nd level. If you using 5E rules, you could probably use 1st level PCs if the party is larger than 4 characters.

I liked Winter’s Daughter. I have but haven’t run the other adventures put out for OSE by Necrotic Gnome, but I’ve read that the ones written by Gavin Norman are pretty good (though maybe a bit weird).

Seconding B10 and U1 (Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh). Both were out of TSR-UK, and Graeme Morris and the other authors there were really good at writing adventures.

The next one I'd recommend from them would be UK4 A Star Falls.

Merric did a great, brief write-up of it here:
