Coming Full Circle

My old AD&D PHB

My old AD&D PHB

When I left for university in 1999, I sold almost all of my RPG books. My memory of exactly why and to whom is hazy, but somehow and for some reason I did.

I had written my name on the interior of some books, though, and somehow my AD&D Player’s Handbook made it into the possession of Guy F. (of Unvisible Citadel and Chaotic Henchmen Productions). He sent it back my way.

The world is small.

Welcome home, book.

    That’s really cool. I’ve occasionally daydreamed about getting back one of my lost items when I buy stuff on eBay. I was mad at my mom for sending all my gaming stuff to a church rummage sale while I was away at college, but that’s where I got a lot of it in the first place. Hopefully, my old books got somebody else into gaming.

    Holy shit that’s amazing. I write my names on all my books too, though I haven’t on my most recent gaming purchases. I need to correct that error.

    Fantastic! The only reason I have my TSR modules is because they didn’t sell along with the books at the local hobby store. Fortunately, I rescued my brother-in-law’s manuals from a moving sale. Who knew what to save in the 80’s…
