Hey gang, guess what I’ve posted for sale? Yes, that’s right, the next GameSpite book. This time it’s Year Two, the exciting sequel to Year One, Vol. 1 and Year One, Vol. 2.
This volume comes in the now-standard four editions:
I apologize if the price seems steeper than you’re accustomed to; Blurb has once again increased its pricing structure. To offset the increased costs, I’ve published this in the larger format (6×9 rather than 5×8) since it’s vastly more economical that way — this size costs only a negligible amount more than the smaller format, but I can squeeze something like 50% more text onto each page (actually more like 75% more, since I used a narrower typeface this time). It won’t quite match the previous volumes, but you’ll get far more bang for your buck than you would otherwise. I hope you’re OK with that.
As with its predecessors, this is a collection of web-published content with some new material (in this case, an article about Mega Man in Dr. Wily’s Revenge that I penned just a few days ago). The content is the same across all four different editions, the only difference being strictly one of durability and presentation quality. I also think the cover is, if I may say so myself, pretty rad. And it carries on this series’ tradition of mushroom-themed covers, of course.
Anyway, there is one bright spot to all of Blurb’s pricing shenanigans: If you happen to buy $50 or more of books (from the GameSpite bookstore or any other!), you can use the code SAVE10 to shave ten bucks off the base price. I guess that’s a small comfort, but at least it’s something. These days, I’ll take what I can get.
