So, I got a new camera from my son and his girlfriend this year for my birthday. So, of course, my thoughts immediately ran toward cataloguing my Appendix N collection. This proved a bit more difficult than I expected, though, for a number of reasons. The first is that some of my collection is not at home. Some of it is on loan to friends and family, especially to those I am trying to interest in the DCC rpg. Other books are at work. A few more are in a back room and are currently a little difficult to reach.
So, this is an incomplete view of the Appendix N books I have. Nonetheless, here we go!
That last picture was taken because, as soon as I had cleaned up from taking pictures of all the others, sure enough a group of Appendix N books appeared sitting close by.
I am still wondering where I set The Moon Pool and some of my Lord Dunsany books, which do not appear in these pictures. And, of course, as I was scouting my bookshelves for Appendix N books, I saw many books that I thought should appear in Appendix N, but do not (either because they were post-publication of the 1e Dungeon Master's Guide, or because they were not books Gary Gygax selected for whatever reason). I might later do a photo-spread of these as well. I am also aware that some might not include a few of these books in Appendix N -- some of the Edgar Rice Burroughs novels are not fantasy, for example, although they all have elements that are worth including in a DCC adventure, IMHO. YMMV.
In any event, I have now read about 3/4 of the books on display, and I am currently working my way through the remaining quarter....as well as seeking out some notable books that are missing from my collection. In subsequent "Appendix N" posts, I'll be looking at these books individually or in related groups.
