OSR News Roundup for November 13th, 2022

November's almost half over, and we're bearing down on the end of the year (and the one year anniversary of the Roundup). Last week the Meet the Publisher Interview was with Richard Ruane, the author of My Chivalric Bromance, Barrow Keep, and more. There was also a ZineQuest followup interview with Harry Menear, author of the Beast of Borgenwald. This week's interview will be with Wayne Robert, talking about their new Indiegogo campaign and previous works.


Let's see what was released last week!
