“While the index to TFT is quite useful (and should have been released separately at a lower price), what Metagaming seems to have with THE FANTASY MASTERS' CODEX 1981 is too little for too much. Unless you have to have the index, I'd recommend you grit your teeth and wait for THE FANTASY MASTERS' CODEX 1982, which hopefully will be typeset and cost less.”
Wow,... $29 ($10USD1981) for a poorly-printed *magazine* on pulp-paper; no wonder so few bought it.
