Reprints from Wizards continue . . OD&D this time

Yes, it is true, the Wizards over at Wizards of the Coast have found that there is a sound audience for reprints of their older (but still fine) roleplaying games.  They suckered me for the First Edition AD&D books, and I am on tap to get a set of the Second Edition AD&D books when they become available at Amazon.

But recently, thanks to info from John, I see that they are also republishing the original 1974 game (as in Original D&D or OD&D), as a set (all the books, and supplements):
  •  Volume 1: Men & Magic
  • Volume 2: Monsters & Treasure
  • Volume 3: Underworld & Wilderness Adventures
  • Supplement I: Greyhawk
  • Supplement II: Blackmoor
  • Supplement III: Eldritch Wizardry
  • Supplement IV: Gods, Demi-Gods & Heroes
It comes in what appears to be a nice brown box, with some foam cutouts for holding some polyhedral dice.

It isn't available yet through amazon, but keep an eye out for ISBN 978-0-7869-6465-9.

The posting from WOTC is here, and states that the release date is November 19, 2013.
