Plot Points is going to try out a new feature: an Appendix N book club! Prof. Jason Carney is an expert in pulp fiction, and RPG superstar and Pathfinder author Clinton J. Boomer knows fantasy RPGs like the back of his hand. We gather these two phenoms to discuss authors that influenced D&D, starting with “The Return of the Sorcerer” by Clark Ashton Smith. Read it here in the next few weeks if you want to be ready for the episode! 

Like Plot Points? Support it on Patreon at the $2 level, and you’ll get a sneak peek into Ben’s book about the sale of TSR to Wizards of the Coast! This chapter concerns TSR West, an effort by TSR to open an LA office devoted to producing comic books, an effort that failed rather impressively. It is the product of a dozen interviews with professionals from comics, gaming, and Hollywood, and as far as I can reckon, it is a tale entirely untold until now.
