Because I want to throw money at Chaosium (even if I already own the item), any chance that the Avalon Hill, especially the later Avalon Hill, items will see reprinting or incorporation into other products? Sun County, Doraster, etc., all should be brought back.

(Yes, you can easily find them on ebay, but I'm thinking more money to Chaosium, therefore more new products down the road...)

Everything is on the internet. Or, at least, You Tube. Including "unboxing videos" for military field rations .

Yes, another list! This time: military SF . Some good picks here, but we always seem to have the same titles over and over again. What of...C.J. Cherryh? And...others?

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day shows the waxing fingernail crescent Moon and Mercury. A nice companion to yesterday's image !

If there is a market for this stuff I have some of my old '80s character in the boxes on my shelves. I should definitely still have the Orge Sorcerer with his Stoorworm Familiar. I'll part with it for a bargain $0.50 with AU$24.50 postage.

Potato Moon
Should a crewed expedition to Mars actually go to Phobos instead? What would be the advantages? The disadvantages? There's no money in it yet (let alone tin being bent), but people are (again) thinking about this .

West End Games has been purchased and one of the first titles to be re-launched is their classic WEB & STARSHIP game.
I’m pleased to announce that I have purchased West End Games (WEG). Founded in 1974, WEG initially published a number of wargames and a decade later branched into roleplaying games, including the first Star Wars RPG as well as original (very original!) works, such as Paranoia and Torg.

Apparently an exoplanet was detected in 1917. What other treasures are hidden in pictures?
