Were any of the RPG products J.Eric Holmes playtested with the same characters and NPCs in the stories he wrote? Is the book going to include anything from the Professor Homes's players that gives extra information that is not in the stories themselves? Or is the idea of this project to clean up J.Eric Holmes's stories and present them in a clean and accurate format?
While digging into the contents for Tales of Peril, Holmes' original manuscripts from his home campaign were found. Depending on how well sales go with Tales of Peril, we'll consider doing a publication of them in some format (undetermined at this time---could be facsimile reproductions, could be bulid a module from them, could be a combination, could be something else).
The intention of ToP was to collect the stories (with their original Holmes art where possible) in one volume, and to publish or reprint the previously-unpublished and/or rare materials under one cover.

Pretty safe thus far---just dealing with the cover art and dust jacket contents. As the book club moves into the stories, there will certainly be spoilers.
Very interesting book. Unfortunately international shipping rates are a bit high, I may have to wait for an ebook
You're not the only one to voice this desire, Sturm
We've planned from the beginning to issue an electronic version of Tales of Peril, but not until after the first printing of hardcovers sells out. When we do the second printing of hardcovers, we'll correct errors in the first printing, and also layout the book for epub, mobi, and PDF formats (exact e-book formats not determined yet
). So, it'll still be at least a little while before this happens. That help?
Edited by Allan Grohe, that's all I need to buy this!
Does this book include Maze of Peril?
