A Few More OSR And Classic Science Fiction Resources For Your Old School Campaigns

So last night once again I was cruising through the internet to calm down after a game, I came across really nice OSR resources these included the run of OD&DITIES  by Richard Tongue  from Dragon Foot   a class fanzine for OD&D hosted by Dragon's foot but preserved for the internet archive.  Next up is  Career Paths for 3d6 Fantasy by Arnold Kemp  of Goblin Punch Blog fame.
 a very useful tool for generating backgrounds, occupations, and more for your tradition old school rpgs. Used this in last night's adventure to generate NPC backgrounds and more on the fly.
Next up is one of the classics of science fiction, the entire run of Galaxy magazine is up to mined and read through for your old school science fiction campaigns. A bit of background on Galaxy,"

Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980. It was founded by an Italian company, World Editions, which was looking to break in to the American market. World Editions hired as editor H. L. Gold, who rapidly made Galaxy the leading science fiction (sf) magazine of its time, focusing on stories about social issues rather than technology.
Gold published many notable stories during his tenure, including Ray Bradbury's "The Fireman", later expanded as Fahrenheit 451; Robert A. Heinlein's The Puppet Masters; and Alfred Bester's The Demolished Man. In 1952, the magazine was acquired by Robert Guinn, its printer. By the late 1950s, Frederik Pohl was helping Gold with most aspects of the magazine's production. When Gold's health worsened, Pohl took over as editor, starting officially at the end of 1961, though he had been doing the majority of the production work for some time."

Next is a great little horror themed 1st level adventure  Cult of the Skin Demon
 This is a great little adaptable adventure that can easily be used to fill in the gap or test a party of adventures. This is a good adventure to slip into the backdoor or as a side quest for an old school campaign.

An old favorite from way back in the dawn of the two thousands, 
The Complete Netbook of Demons and their Relatives
 This little gem is a perfect add on to your old school campaigns when you want something dangerous and highly infernal but don't want the usual resources for monsters and kin to be used. This netbook contains a whole range of infernal foes and horrors waiting to be sprung upon your old school campaigns. Uses these wisely or dangerous horrors in Hell await your PC's or worse.
