    Curious about Memoirs of a Virtual Caveman, but can't find much info on it beyond what you've already seen on the website? Check out these new sample chapters, as well as praise for the previous edition.

    Also, an eBook is being strongly considered. If there's any interest in one, let me know here.

    Been on the fence about the book? Not crazy about paper anymore? Well, the eBook edition of Memoirs of a Virtual Caveman is out! It's $8.99, should work on most eBook readers, and is available right now!

    Anyone going to Pensacon? I'll be co-chairing a panel with Memoirs contributor (and former Light Sword Cypher Mainframe webmaster) Sam Roberts entitled “Memoirs of the Virtual Cavemen: Fandom from Web 1.0 to Today” on Saturday, February 28 from 3:15 pm to 4:00 pm at the Bay Center. Hope to you there!

    Rob, for those of us unable to attend, will you be able to have someone record the footage and youtube that sucker? I'd love to see this talk! I know for example youtuber HappyConsoleGamer did a press conference once, recorded the whole thing and then uploaded it onto his YT channel.

    It would be great to see, and the video could gain Memoirs additional exposure.

    My copy from Amazon just came in this week. I'm about a third of the way in, and it's been a great read. I'd recommend it to anyone who's been playing since the'70s or '80s, as it's a vivid encapsulation of a unique and formative time that rings of honesty without agenda. I find it to be a great historical reference as well, as the goal is to relate stories and not speculate over why which company did what. Thanks for the great book, Rob, and all of the other contributors as well!

    Thanks! I'm glad you're enjoying it so far.

    So you missed the "Memoirs of the Virtual Cavemen" panel at Pensacon last weekend, where Sam and I talk about the history of West Mansion, The Light Sword Cypher Mainframe and more? Don't worry, I have you covered: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2nXAp_1ycU
