The Book of Adventure Games

Kim Schuette's 1984 classic publication The Book of Adventure Games is much more than a collection of walkthroughs, hints, and elaborate maps. It is a thorough study of the early text-based days of the genre, and you can grab yourself a well-priced and decently preserved copy over at eBay.

Obitus (Amiga)

Not only was Obitus a typically beautiful Psygnosis game in an awesomely illustrated box, but it also managed to be a great and actually unique RPG -- one of my 16-bit favourites. Happily, you can bid on a complete, boxed, Amiga version of the thing via this Obidus eBay auction. It comes with the sealed t-shirt, the 3 disks, and the manual. And it is quite the rarity too.
