Sad Basilisk Press is a publisher of games and game aids that have an historical, academic bent. It is run by Mario J. Hesles in his spare time. Mario enjoys chasing cats with his toddling son; watching Seinfeld with his wife; using and learning more about LaTeX, Linux, Emacs, and Haskell; and reading books on economic history, the history of the Early Modern period, philosophy, logic, math, and computer science.
