New Gord the Rogue By Gary Gygax available now!

I was just alerted that this had been announced. As a gamer it was one of the greatest pleasures of my life to work with Gary. In this story you have one of our final collaborations. After the first short story we did, Gary wanted to add Chert as Gord’s companion to the next one and this was the result, it is high adventure in the City of Greyhawk with magical duels, beautiful women, and plenty of chaos.
I hope you enjoy it.

Here is the release from the publisher:

Of Dice & Pen Available To Order From Flying Pen Press
Anthology includes the final Gord the Rogue story by E. Gary Gygax

DENVER — Flying Pen Press announced the ordering availability of Of Dice & Pen, edited by Fred Poutre.

An anthology of science fiction and fantasy stories by noted game developers, Of Dice & Pen features the final Gord the Rogue story by Gary Gygax and K.R. Bourgoine. Gary Gygax was the creator of Dungeons and Dragons® and often referred to as the “Father of Role-Playing”. His many accomplishments include founding both the game company TSR, Inc. and the renowned GenCon gaming convention. Although Gygax passed away earlier this year, he left us with a fast-paced tale written with co-author K.R. Bourgoine in which Gord and Chert find themselves in trouble between a beautiful lady and an angry wizard.

This anthology shares visions beyond the gaming table from the macabre to the humorous. Rick Loomis, the founder and president of Flying Buffalo, Inc., spins a tale of young hero who finds out that perhaps the adventures he wished for were not exactly as he expected. Chief Creative Officer Andrew Looney of Looney Labs writes of dreams and their meanings on a lovely beach. Visit a dusty tavern in Elizabeth Danforth’s tale of drunkenness, an imp, and unexpected magic. And Origins™ award-winner Matt Forbeck’s story of supernaturals locked in battle with zombies races to a startling conclusion.

Editor Fred Poutre is a game designer for Cloven Fruit Games and one of the authors of the new setting AfterWorlds™ for the HARP™ SF gaming system, available from Iron Crown Enterprises. He is also a tutor for GEAR UP, a college preparatory program in Laramie County, Wyoming.

Flying Pen Press is a publisher of fiction and nonfiction books. It is located in Denver, Colorado and operates from virtual offices all over the world. The company’s website is FlyingPenPress.com.
