Steve Perrin's works have always been extremely influential to me. I think he is really, really one of the most underrated people in the industry. Ah, well.
Anyway, as soon as the rare Mr Perrin gets mentioned anywhere in a publication or on the internet, I must read the piece. The last time I stumbled upon an interview of his, it was two years ago, and I blogged about it.
Well, there has been another interview recently, and I am promptly providing the link. This latter interview focuses on the early history of role-playing, on how much influence the Perrin Conventions/the RuneQuest rules have had on what is probably today's most heavily used set of frp rules — without due credit even being given to the pioneering work of Messrs Perrin, Turney et al. Sigh. Anyway, enjoy the interview! (which does not otherwise reveal any particular secrets)
