Console Wars

I reviewed Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation previously on this blog. Having grown up in the 80s and 90s, I found the book to be a fascinating look behind the scenes of a corporate rivalry that shaped my childhood.

Console Wars, Blake J. Harris

It was therefore a pleasure to have Console Wars author Blake J. Harris as a special guest on Geek Gab. Blake discussed how a lack of well researched material on gaming led him to take matters into his own hands, and he shared a few choice anecdotes from the book itself.

If you're a gamer, you owe it to yourself to have a listen.



Update on yesterday's book launch: not only did The Secret Kings reach an Amazon rank in the 7,000s; Nethereal and Souldancer both made it into the top 1% of books in the Kindle Store. My readers deserve full credit for both achievements.

I'd also like to thank John and Jagi Wright, Vox Day, Jeffro Johnson, JD Cowan, Russell Newquist, Rawle Nyanzi, Declan Finn, and all of the other authors who supported the launch. I couldn't ask for better colleagues.

Since I'm my own publisher and thus get to decide these things, the Secret Kings launch is still underway. Nethereal and Souldancer are also still on sale. Now is the perfect time to get caught up on this award-winning SFF series.
