Summary
I still think including two editions of the original D&D adventure is a bit of overkill but I do understand this is not only looked at as an adventure module but also a collector's item too. The vast majority of gamers will be curious as to the conversion and Michael Curtis does a very solid of bringing the sense of wonder and awe of the 1980 module to 5th edition D&D. Granted some of the "futuretech" from back in the day is a wee bit creaky but this should still make for a ton of fun for those who don't mind getting science fiction in their fantasy. I do have critiques on the presentation and have to say this book will not be as easy to use at the table as it should.
