I’ve written a few books over the years. I think my writing has improved drastically since I started, but that doesn’t change the fact that my first effort is still the one that incites the most discussion and has the most requests for a sequel.
But if you’re more of an audio fan then maybe you’ll dig the audiobook version of Free Radical recorded by Paul Spooner. It’s the whole book, unabridged, in OGG format. Like the text version, it’s free. (There’s also a print version, and the price is only to cover print costs. I don’t take any money for the book.)
I’ll admit these are hard for me to listen to. Especially the first chapter. That’s not a dig at Paul. He did fine work. It’s just that when I hear the words I hear the voice of a novice author who hasn’t yet found his voice and is suffering from a bad case of Trying Too Hard.
Thanks so much to Paul for putting this together. Here’s hoping some of you find it useful.
What is Vulkan?
What is this Vulkan stuff? A graphics engine? A game engine? A new flavor of breakfast cereal? And how is it supposed to make PC games better?
The Disappointment Engine
No Man's Sky is a game seemingly engineered to create a cycle of anticipation and disappointment.
Batman: Arkham City
A look back at one of my favorite games. The gameplay was stellar, but the underlying story was clumsy and oddly constructed.
A screencap comic that poked fun at videogames and the industry. The comic has ended, but there's plenty of archives for you to binge on.
A look at the main Borderlands games. What works, what doesn't, and where the series can go from here.
