That copy was autographed to, I am reasonably certain, Gilbert Milner, tyhen a buyer for War Games West, a now-defunct distributor out of (used to be out of) Albequerque, New Mexico.
Gilbert currently works for Lion Rampant in Canada, and is an old friend and trusted colleague of mine. Great guy too.
It might be another Gilbert, but I'm betting not.
Short form: Way cool dude. You happened upon a piece of gaming history there.
The guy that runs this chicken outfit.
