PGM Star Fantasy 5

7 posts in this topic

Star Fantasy was a short-run Italian anthology book that reprinted various (often licensed) fantasy properties, translated into Italian. In particular, #5 and #6 reprint EverQuest: The Ruins of Kunark in serialized form, along with other material (including one of Mark Smylie's Artesia books, although I haven't taken the time to figure out which one...).

Here is #5, featuring an adaptation of the original book's cover art (itself a swipe of the Ruins of Kunark game box art). No spine ticks, and generally a sound book but with quite a bit of edge and corner wear. In part, I'm curious how much of this might be able to press out, although obviously things like the FC LR corner obviously can't be helped. With a few exceptions, these foreign republications are a beast to find in high grades

I'd say 8.0/8.5 as is maybe the press will take some of the rounded corner stuff out. When I see modern stuff like this it seems they tend to get hit a bit harder.
