Jackie and I had a wonderful trip to Fort Worth and NTRPG Con...

...Jackie wants to return next year. I may have something new (not out of
print) to show there.

Sincerely,

"In his Iowa State dormitory in 1975, Rasmussen began to develop and playtest an espionage simulation with his friends, and the next year he wrote to TSR to see if the game could be published; he received a response letter from Mike Carr wishing to review the game, and by the next year the simulation had the working title of Top Secret, which was eventually accepted for publication in 1978. Allen Hammack is assigned to the project as an editor, and Hammack worked with Rasmussen on rules clarifications and editing, and the game saw print by the end of February 1980. He also continued to work on the graveyard shift as an orderly in a Council Bluffs hospital and as a production technician in the Media Production Department of an educational agency in Southwest Iowa. He was also the President of Game Room Productions, Ltd., in Minden, Iowa since June 1979.Rasmussen's Top Secret (1980) was TSR's sixth role-playing game, and the first espionage RPG.Jackie and Merle Rasmussen wrote a two-part adventure, "Tortles of the Purple Sage", featured in Dungeon #6 (July/August 1987) and #7 (September/October 1987)."

From Wikipedia

Besides Top Secret, Rasmussen has also authored several other role-playing game related titles such as Ghost of Lion Castle, Midnight on Dagger Alley, Quagmire!, and The Savage Coast.
