My friend is doing an AMA on Reddit. He's a published author of several Pathfinder novels, and his own works of fiction.
If you have a Reddit account, please stop by and give him an upvote, or ask a question about the writing process or industry.

As y'all have seen in a half-dozen posts, the G+ Titanic is sinking quicker than expected... and there aren't enough lifeboats. (OK, the metaphor isn't working there)
Anyhow, MeWe.com is where I'm seeing a lot of G+ survivors. If you're inclined, come on over. I know some people don't want to... for reasons, and I respect that. But if you don't know what to do after G+, MeWe is a solid choice.

Stored properly, your game books can last indefinitely.
I have some thoughts about this at our Storage/Care page, including the great enemy of paper: Humidity.

It’s no secret (https://waynesbooks.games/2013/10/03/dd-gazetteer-series/) that I love the Dungeons & Dragons Gazetteer series.

For me, it’s the Clyde Caldwell cover art and consistent graphics from one GAZ book to the next, giving the series a cohesive theme, and a feast for the eyes. So many publishers get this wrong.

And each is a trove of material. All have a poster map of their region. Many have multiple booklets, counters, or even building/vehicle figures to assemble.

Year of the Phoenix
1986 … Martin Wixted … Fantasy Games Unlimited 4101

The game’s premise is a “red” herring… if you’ll pardon the pun. The players are American astronauts in a 1997 where the Cold War still gripped relations between the USA and Soviet Union.

Characters are generated, and the GM gives them a glossy “Space Command Training Manual” to familiarize them in their roles as American military astronauts.

Once play begins, however, so does the disorientation.

"You are one of an elite few Astronauts. In the year 1997, and a vital link in our American strategic plan. As a member of PROJECT PHOENIX, you exist to defend our space station, our moon base… and beyond.
But tragedy strikes. During a rescue mission at the space station AMERICA, a freak accident tears you from your Shuttle and plunges you through a time warp. You awaken in an America that is not your own; it is the year 2197, and America fell to the Enemy almost 200 years ago."

Now the players are strangers in a strange land, finding their fellow “Amerikans” under the oppressive boot of the “Zoviets”.

Never played this one myself, but the premise is intriguing.

For sale in the shop: http://www.waynesbooks.net/products/keyword/YEAR+PHOENIX

If I don’t have any available, usually there are a few on Amazon for a reasonable price: https://amzn.to/2roaU70

Fantasy Games Unlimited seems to have it:

Not clear whether it’s the original box set, or one of their combo reprinted paperbacks.
