    Greyhawk is in Project Gutenberg

    No, really.

    Maybe I'm confused but I thought the Gutenberg project was all about publishing material that had entered the public domain. Does that mean Greyhawk is in the public domain now? That doesn't seem right.

    Says right on the entry in the page you linked that it's copyrighted materials.

    That said, it appears to be a category, more than any actual text.

    That's just an encyclopedia article explaining what Greyhawk is. The game books are still protected by copyright law.

    Agreed. I've read it as well. It's an encylcopedia article, little different from the various Wiki's on the internet. Though probably better organized and edited.
