Tales from the Smoking Wyrm is perhaps the finest general fantasy fanzine for Dungeon Crawl Classics. Think along the lines of Crawl! but more packed in per issue. A comparison to Crawl! is extremely high praise if you aren't hip to it.
64 Page digest sized zine with cover stock almost identical to the early 70s era supplements for Original Dungeons & Dragons (Eldritch Wizardry; Gods, Demi-Gods & Heroes; Swords & Spells), heavy paper interior meant to last for a long time; hand numbered. Also includes a Shoggoth Familiar bookmark with 5 mil lamination. That is thick!
These things smell good too, like actually printed thing.
