Hardback, digest sized, 159 pages, hand-numbered edition of 500
The Oracle was a well realized, very ambitious fanzine put out almost single-handedly by Christopher Bigelow, a Mormon teenager, in 1982-83. It is an excellent example of the type and includes original adventures, rules offerings like new character classes, and reviews of other periodicals and rules systems and movies. This project should speak to gamers, nostalgia seekers, game historians, and zine fanatics.
The Complete The Oracle collects the entire print run of the original The Oracle. It also includes a contemporary imagining of the unrealized last issue, including contributions from Sarah Doombringer, Sandy Petersen, and others; it also has a fantastic amount of ephemera related to the creation of the magazine.
