Spectral Vision 1

By Marcus D Barnes


The first issue of my 1980s AD&D Fanzine

Introduction


I began playing and game-mastering AD&D (Advanced Dungeons and Dragons) in 1978.


By 1984 I had a fair collection of new material and came up with the idea of creating my own fanzine.


Pulling together issue 1 took a fair amount of effort, and cost. I had 250 issues printed locally and then managed to persuade a few game stores to sell a few copies for me. In the end I sold around 200 copies – mainly thanks to a good review in Imagine magazine (issue 24 if memory serves me well) – at a small overall loss.


The first issue was in A4 format and had 40 pages.
