An NYT Retro Report on the early-80s shit-show around the Devil and D&D. It neglects* to mention that William Dear (P.I.!) is a grifter and a con-man, but whatever.
And then there's this, two year-old article from io9, "How We Won the War on Dungeons and Dragons". I liked it more, especially the picture of the dungeon module.
* It's possible the video goes into that; but I didn't watch the whole thing.
