"Yes, my middle name is actually Gygax. Heidi did me the honor of taking my surname when we married. I took her maiden name as my middle so I could enjoy standing beside her in the lovely lines at places like the DMV and Social Security office."

A lifelong enthusiast of comics, fantasy ,science fiction literature, and RPG gaming, in 2015, Erik attended his first Gary Con where he met tbe lovely Heidi Gygax. They became friends and a relationship developed over the years, and they married in 2023, complicating the hell out of both of their lives.
