If you were thinking about picking up any of the GameSpite books from Blurb — though hardly anyone does this day, so don’t feel like some sort of aberration if you don’t! — the 20%-off coupon code FANS still works through end of day tomorrow. I don’t know if that’s “end of day” in any particular time zone. I guess it’s like feeding a mogwai after midnight; there’s no hard rule on when you can feed them again. It’s just magic.
Even though there’s really no audience for these books anymore, I’m plugging away at the next volume anyway. I guess it’s a kind of sickness. GSJ13 really began to fall into place this weekend, which always makes me happy.
The next book attempts to take the “Anatomy of a Game” thing into print. It’ll be a fairly even mix of expanded existing content and entirely new material. It’s coming along very nicely, and I think this material works really well on the page. I guess we’ll see in December or so.
