Down we go into the depths again! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we descent into The Maze of Peril (1986), a fantasy novel by Dr. John Eric Holmes. Holmes is best know for creating the first D&D Basic Rules box set (1977), but he also wrote fantasy fiction (in addition to his day job as a neurologist). At a glance, Maze of Peril doesn’t inspire much confidence as to its quality, but it winds up being a fun adventure that captures something of the spirit of the early days of Dungeons & Dragons — something countless other hard-trying fantasy novels have failed to do.
