    Default Memoirs of a Virtual Caveman: AVAILABLE NOW!

    AVAILABLE NOW! http://memoirsofavirtualcaveman.net

    The long awaited "definitive edition" of my 2008 book Memoirs of a Virtual Caveman is on track for a July 15th release! The manuscript is currently about 85% done (not only have I added new stories, but most of the stories I wrote for the original have had new material added to them), and the book will go into editing starting in May. It's currently more than twice the size of the original, and is loaded with pictures - and new stories from several new guest contributors, as well as two guest contributors returning from the original book.

    Among those contributors are Sam Roberts of the Strider fansite The Light Sword Cypher Mainframe; Rondal Scott III of the pop-subculture website Strange Kids Club; Earl Green, webmaster of TheLogbook.com and author of the Doctor Who books VWORP!1 and VWORP!2; Rob O'Hara, author of the books Commodork and Invading Spaces; Brett Weiss, author of the Classic Home Video Games book series; Steven, of the retrogaming website RVG Fanatic; Mike Plasket, contributing editor to the retrogaming website Hardcore Gaming 101; and many more. I've also included interviews with videogame industry veterans David Crane, Allan Findlay, Dan Tovar, Dave Wilkins, Yuzo Koshiro, and Kouichi "Isuke" Yotsui.

    More information will be posted in the coming months, including the release date, full page count and price.

    Old info, from 2008

    Anyone interested in a book full of LORE-style stories?

    Sometime over the next month, I plan to have a book that I've written, Memoirs of a Virtual Caveman, available for sale. It's approximately 60% stories written by me, 40% stories written by friends of mine.

    The stories within are, as I said, LORE-style stories. I covered quite a bit in my stories, from the 2600 up through the PS1, as well as my early experiences with importing and more.

    Maybe. I might have to see some excerpts first. Why didn't DP think of a book like this yet?

    Examples, you say? A few of them are posted here. I've cleaned them up a bit for the book, but all of the entries I wrote for the 2007 LORE contest will be included.

    Never Judge a Game By its Screenshots
    StubborNES
    The Duffel Bag
    Gradius II And Me

    Anyone remember the lone LORE story of mine from the Advance Guide, "Gradius III And Me"? It's being included as well, although it's been edited a bit in light of events that happened after the Guide was published.

    As far as the price... that's still being worked on, but I don't expect it to be any more than $10 before shipping. I'll post everything here once it's been finalized.

    For ten bucks? Sure, why not. Can you autograph? Can the other writers?
