Along with Leigh Butler’s A Read of Ice and Fire, my other favorite feature at tor.com has been Tim Callahan and Mordicai Knode’s Advance Readings in Dungeons & Dragons. While Tim and Mordicai have completed their quest, reading the famous Appendix N is always a beginning, never an ending, to expanding your fantasy horizons.
Gamers, readers, and writers alike can earn experience by repeating their endeavor. Whether or not you’ve already done the reading, it’s worth your while to take a peek at their reactions to readings from Lord Dunsany to Leigh Brackett.
While we’re at it, what books would you add to an Appendix N if you were writing it today?
