White Dwarf #14 Gary Gygax Interview
Until the last year or so I was very interested in the original Greyhawk campaign and slightly interested in the squabbles between the people creating their own campaign rules and writing in 'zines about them and TSR/Gygax. The genesis of the rift between TSR, Gygax, and the creative DMs who were altering the game (or photocopying rulebooks) is pretty straight-forward. Money. This interview briefly touches on some of the other reasons for the rift (creative control) but it mainly contains a bit of biography on Gygax, TSR and the creation of D&D. An interesting read.
