Appendix N: Three Hearts and Three Lions $1.99 in the Kindle Store
Poul Anderson's Three Hearts and Three Lions is for sale for $1.99 in the Kindle Store. There is a lot of old school goodness in this book, and it's clear how much of an influence it had on some aspects of early Dungeons & Dragons. I don't want to spoil anything, but you can really see the origins of the Paladin class here, and the troll has a very D&D feel to it. I remember needing to get this through inter-library loan in order to read it back when it was out of print. I'm really glad to see more old titles getting new life as e-books. At under 200 pages, it makes for a quick and worthwhile summer read, plus it's a pretty good deal for just $1.99 if you have a Kindle.
