Kickstarter - Back to BasiX Fanzine Hardcover Compilation - Issues 1-10

The Back to BasiX Fanzine - a hardcover compilation of the initial ten issues.

Thom Wilson's Back to Basix Zine is/was amazing. The initial 10 issue run was one of the more useful zines for my day-to-day gaming as a resource, but for the pure joy of reading it is second to none. Sadly, I am NOT the most organized man in the OSR (that would be my weekly partner on Wednesday Nights, Bad Mike) and my various issues are not collected in a single place. Thank you Thom for solving that issue with my poor collection of Back to Basix Issues. See what I did there? ;)

Back to BasiX is a quarterly fanzine focused on the B/X version of the world's most popular tabletop role-playing game. It was created and printed between June, 2017 and September, 2019, and was available in PDF and print. The PDFs are still accessible at DriveThruRPG.com, but print issues are becoming harder to find.

Across a ten-issue print run, it offers reviews of B/X products new and old; interviews with legendary authors and artists; and all-original content for the game.

This hardcover compilation combines all ten issues in their original format with a few tweaks to clean up layout and fix a couple of typos. Additionally, fonts were standardized throughout the book. The page size of the hardcover is slightly larger than the original digests, so the font size increased slightly (a half-point). The compilation will be printed on heavier stock paper and, of course, will be hard cover instead of saddle-stitched softcover.

The Back to Basix Fanzine Hardcover Compilation Issues 1-10 is $10 in PDF, $20 in Hardcover, and $30 for the signed Hardcover. I'm in for $30 :)
