Appendix N

Appendix N: The Eldritch Roots of Dungeons and Dragons by Peter Bebergal

A selection of works from the famous D&D Appendix N.

With some variation because, for instance, Poul Anderson was cited only in novel form, and he didn't want to do excerpts. Also drawing on his personal experience. Included a couple not on the list -- for instance, something from C.L. Moore, but nothing from Andre Norton who was on the list.

Besides its historical significance, also a sampling of sword and sorcery of the era. Tends to be bleak.
