As of October 5th, 13:14 PDT, the B/X Companion has officially sold out its first print run...although, there IS still a copy down at Gary's Games in Seattle (checked this afternoon).
Since the orders continue to come in (yes, I am actually officially OVER-SOLD) I will be ordering a 2nd print run this week. The 2nd run will have corrections to certain typos (notably the word "horde" will generally be replaced with the word "hoard" in most instances) as well as adding the TM symbol to Labyrinth Lord mentioned in the Foreword.
Oh, yeah...and I'll be correcting the single actual game errata I've found in the book (the Banshee should be listed as Hit Dice: 7**...many of the books were "hand corrected" by me before being mailed).
I'd like to thank everyone who helped line my pockets and enabling the financing of a 2nd print run by buying the book...especially those first interested people who bought the thing BEFORE the reviews started coming in. I'd like to thank James Maliszewski of Grognardia for talking it up (even though he hasn't yet purchased his own copy, his review yesterday got me a score of new customers that helped put me over the top). Most especially, I'd like to thank my wonderful artists whose contributions helped make my words pretty to look at, and whose fine work transformed my scribbled thoughts into an actual honest-to-goodness game.
Of course, my family gets a shout out, too, for their love and support.
It's funny, folks...I put together a 64 page game over many months, and by no means did it make me rich nor famous...but, damn, it's immensely satisfying. Really...thanks to everyone who reads the ol' B/X Blackrazor. I hope you've found it entertaining (it's been fun for me writing it). I really, really, REALLY do plan on writing more stuff, and I hope that it is received at least half as well as the B/X Companion. THAT book was a true labor of love. I am 100% satisfied with how it turned out.
Well...except for the damn typos in the first print.
