Empire of Imagination

Empire of Imagination is the dynamic life story of Gary Gygax, from his childhood in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, to his untimely death in 2008. Gygax's magnum opus, Dungeons & Dragons, would explode in popularity throughout the 1970s and '80s and irreversibly alter the world of gaming.

Gygax's involvement in the gaming industry lasted long after his dramatic and involuntary departure from D&D's parent company, TSR, and his footprints can still be seen in the genre of gaming that he is largely responsible for creating. But as Witwer shows, perhaps the most compelling facet of Gygax's life and work was his unwavering commitment to the power of creativity in the face of myriad sources of adversity - cultural, economic and personal.

With a narrative-driven style that elegantly captures the drama of those early days of D&D, Witwer has written an engaging chronicle of the life and legacy of this emperor of imagination.
