I requested the original version a long, long time ago(THIS DOES NOT MEAN REQUEST MR. IGLESIAS!), and when I saw this in the 25th anniversary book I was absolutely astounded. As jaw-dropping as the original was, this is even better.
oh man, this whole series is amazing. The last time i picked up a battletech game book was over 20 years ago, but i have a strong urge to see where the game is at now. Also reminded me that the grey death legion books were some of the greatest of my childhood. I wonder if they are still in print.
