What I'd really love to see is a web page dedicated solely to Holmes and his D&D output, to bring all of these loose threads together for D&D history posterity. Maybe I'll get off my procrastinating butt one day and do something about it.
That's a good idea, and one I'm happy to endorse; perhaps as an Acaeum wiki page project??
I'm open to the idea grodog, but have to admit I know nothing about wiki pages and every time I've gone to one, I've found them frustratingly difficult to navigate. In fact most I've seen seem to lack links to different sections, but instead have only a search function. My very limited experience has put me off them, but is probably based purely on ignorance.
blackbarn, I'm guessing Holmes himself would still own the rights.
That would be great. I read one of his Dragon magazine stories and liked it... I'd love to see the rest. Was Holmes ever contacted and asked to visit any of the forums like DF or this one? We could pitch the idea to him.
I haven't been back in touch with him since my initial contacts several years ago; he hasn't responded to further mailings from me, unfortunately. I attribute this to his stroke from a few years ago, but don't really know if that's the root cause or something else.
