This is the most in-depth interview of E. G. Gygax I have read. -I still haven't finished reading it, in fact.

Pointed out by Rob Kuntz in comments at Grognardia.

Today, James M at Grognardia pointed out this issue of Europa, a Swiss wargaming zine from 75' that includes some early writings of Gary Gygax regarding D&D and a description of 'Old Greyhawk Castle'.

Interesting stuff. Gary's writing begins on page 18.

EDIT: A bunch of early Gygax writings in the Liasons Dangereuses zine between 76' and 77', pointed out by Randall of RetroRoleplaying.
