My First Book is Alive and Well

Last year, in a fit of self-indulgence, I reprinted my first book, Through Dungeons Deep: A Fantasy Gamers’ Handbook, which I wrote in college and was published by Reston Publishing in 1982.

Rather to my surprise, it has been selling briskly, and in spite of being a straight reprint, without a single word having been changed in 28 years, I’m getting testimonials like this one:

Robert,

Just a note to wish you and yours a happy holiday, and to tell you how much I enjoy “Through Dungeons Deep” (the reprinted edition). Although I’m a DM with many years of experience, I still find new and insightful ideas in every chapter. The bits about your personal gaming group and characters are especially fun to read as well. I look forward to recommending it to my friends, who will undoubtedly enjoy it every bit as much as I have.

Best wishes,

Todd Rooks

I’m grateful to be living in the Internet age, where self-publishing allows works that have long been out of print to find new audiences. I hope to bring many more books to light, delighting people with both their nostalgia value and their timelessness.

  1. I actually first saw this book in its original timeframe, flipped through a friends copy, but never got one of my own. Stumbled upon it and ordered one last year, and am finally getting around to reading it. While some portions of the book lean heavily on the hobby (or perhaps just the Dungeons and Dragons game) as it was then, much of the book is general advice that still applies today.

    Thanks both for writing it, and for republishing it.

    I was curious whether you might still be involved in the game any more?
