"Temperatures are dropping, turning the great outdoors frigid and inhospitable. Crank the thermostat, heat a mug of cocoa, and curl up with ten epic reads found in the Chill Game Book Bundle.
Author and historian David L. Craddock returns with two entries in his GameDev Stories series featuring interviews with developers, designers, and other industry veterans. StoryBundle newcomer Kristopher Landis presents Quest for the Dragon Star, an oral history of the WMAC Masters show featuring Ho Sung Pak—famous for portraying Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat and MKII—among other martial artists.
All that, plus Brian Riggsbee's collection of NES and Famicom maps, a book that examines the real-life influences behind some of the world's most terrifying horror games, two books from the vast library of Hardcore Gaming 101, and more.
StoryBundle is a pay-what-you-want platform for independent authors to share their works with readers (and gamers) like you. Paying at least $5 will get you three books from the Chill Game Book Bundle, while paying $20 or more unlocks all seven bonus books. – David L. Craddock"

Pre-orders opened yesterday for my latest book Pixel Art: Metroid.
The Complete History of Rygar is part of the Summer Story Bundle. I will be donating my portion of the proceeds to The Trevor Project, in memory of Philip J. Reed.
You can purchase the ebook bundle at http://storybundle.com.
I teamed up with Boss Fight Books to offer digital copies of The Complete History of Rygar as a stretch goal for their GoldenEye Kickstarter campaign. I can't wait to read their new book and I'm excited for hundreds to get to experience my Rygar book.
On April 19th I unveiled the release of my new retro gaming book Video Game Maps: NES & Famicom, a celebration of NES & Famicom maps. Over 250 games are featured spanning 346 pages.
Bundles and books begin shipping in a few weeks.
I'm working on a few new video game themed books and one is based on haiku and gaming. My goal is to crowd source tons of video game themed haiku and form a beautiful book that we can all enjoy. It can be any game from any period of time, and people can submit as many haiku as they like.
I'll give a free digital copy of the book to anyone that submits a haiku.
Form to submit is here: http://t.ly/LZAs
