I keep a short, rotating stack of books I am reading and/or referencing handy - everything else goes in the basement.  Since I acquired LL and its AEC printings years ago, those two books have never left the stack.  I think LL is an excellent B/X clone/expansion (to 20th level), and AEC has everything I wanted from 1E, in a short, concise package.

I recently acquired Starships & Spacemen from the same author (aka "LL in Space"), it am looking forward to reading it soon, too.
Please try my old school computer game (link) and tell me what you think.

I like Labrynth Lord but have sadly never run it myself. I've ended up running BFRPG for my B/X fix, but I keep telling myself I want to run 1e and think I would use LL+AEC to do so.

It really is a solid ruleset! I always enjoy flipping through it. I've also quite enjoyed the campaigns I've played in that used it.

Sorry for the necro, but...

Labyrinth Lord is the D&D I played BITD, and the D&D I want to play today. YMMV. I find it intuitive and flexible, true to B/X-1e AD&D, but verrsatile enough for whatever I need. Just started running it for my gaming noob nephews. Starting off easy, party initiative and the like, but can add things in later, once they start to grasp the fundamentals. And I can do so without overhauling the characters or adventures. I can run any B/X or 1e AD&D module with LL, needing little or no alteration. Overall, it's perfect for me.
