Woke up this morning from a crappy night's sleep to find this.
"Wizards of the Coast to produce First Edition Premium AD&D books"
So not only is WotC re-releasing the the original Gygax trinity of books for sale, they are doing to raise money for the Gygax memorial fund. There will be new covers on these books and they will be limited editions.
I might have to pick up two sets (one for me, one for my kids).
Of course despite all of this I am sure people will complain about what percent will actually be going to the Gygax fund. Or about the price of the books.
The PHB product page is here, http://www.wizards.com/dnd/Product.aspx?x=dnd/products/dndacc/02410000
So basically WotC out-OSRed the OSR.
Better reserve your copies now.
