There's a link to an interview with Katie Salen posted on Boardgamenews.com...she's the co-author of "Rules of Play" and "The Game Design Reader," the latter of which has just been published, and I got a copy for Christmas (woo-hoo!).

These books represent the first real effort at a deep, academic look at the core concepts in game design, and they cover everything from boardgames to computer games. Rules of Play has interviews with Reiner Knizia and Richard Garfield along with computer gaming designers.

The Katie Salen interview is here:

And here's a link to "Rules of Play" on Amazon.com:

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who's serious about game design. It would serve as an excellent textbook or resource book for anyone interested in teaching game design as well.
