Lying on the coffee table I found the book OF DICE AND PEN. Having nothing better to do, I picked it up. Several hours later I was still in my chair reading. What an interesting collection of stories. Thoroughly enjoyed the read. And I am delighted to learn it is a collector item, since it contains the last work of Gary Gygax. This is a keeper for our library. I'm back to buy another copy or two to give as gifts. Since it is a collection of different stories I can't fairly do the detailed rating properly, but ALL were fun to read.
