    Apparently this was news 10 days ago, but I only learned of it now: Joe Dever, writer of the Lone Wolf adventure gamebooks, has died. His world of Magnamund was one of my first exposures to trad-fantasy (and to analog gaming of the more geeky, fantasy/sci-fi-oriented sort) when I was a child. I’ll go so far as to say it unlocked new rooms in my mind – rooms that are now packed to their vaulted, gargoyle-ornamented ceilings with miniatures!

    In more recent years I was pleasantly surprised to find that he was an active member of the online fantasy analog gaming community, including frequenting miniatures gaming forums where he would happily engage in conversations over PM with no-name fans (even me!) of the Lone Wolf / Magnamund setting.

    I raise a 28mm Minifigs Kai Lord in his honour.
