EGG biography coming this fall

23848482

This may be old news, as I don’t read the RPG forums any more, but I just heard about an upcoming book, Empire of the Imagination by Michael Witwer. As far as I can tell it is the author’s first book. I’ll keep an eye out for it. Judging by the subtitle it may be less of a biography and more yet-another-book-on-how-D&D-happened, but I’m holding out hope that it is a real biography.

  1. It couldn’t possibly be worse than Of Dice and Men. If I see it at a B&N, I’ll be sure to give it a thumb-through. Meantime, i will wait for Dyson to stick googly eyes on this. 😀

    • Hah! I have yet to see a book cover that is not improved by the Dyson procedure.
      Of Dice and men literally left no impression on me … I thought it was readable at the time but now I don’t remember anything about. Even “The elfish gene” was better in that regard — I remember that one, even if the author is kinda rough on the hobby.

      • Of Dice and Men felt like a Time article that got padded out with enough fluff to justify being sent to print. The only part of it I find truly obnoxious is how much importance it was given (which admittedly wasn’t THAT much) by non-gaming media so as Ewalt could be brought in as “author of Of Dice and Men” to be some sort of table-top gaming expert commentator for article quotes.

  2. I have an advance copy. It is just as much biography as early D&D history. HOWEVER, the bio and history stop in the early stages. Still a pretty good read.

    • Thanks for the info! I’m definitely interested in this then and will keep an eye out for it.
