Re: Arcade Imperfect... coming soon from Golem Books!

Last call for Space Heroes! Arcade Imperfect goes to print on Tuesday, which leaves around 72 hours for anyone who preorders the book to have their name printed inside (still room for around ten more names to be added to the Space Heroes list, as of this morning)... head to the Golem Books website a...

Arcade Imperfect... coming soon from Golem Books!

Hey everyone. It gives me enormous pleasure to announce that Arcade Imperfect, the follow-up to 2018's The Book of the Game of the Film, is here at last. Arcade Imperfect is a 300-page history of the classic coin-ops of the '70s, '80s and '90s, and the stripped-down conversions that desperate 8-bit ...

Re: The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x ... available now from Golem Books!

Just thought I'd share a little Facebook alert I posted earlier today with the Retro Gamer forum faithful: 53226282_1212137492282090_4917887744631373824_n.jpg We're down to the last few copies of the limited hardcover edition of The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x here at Golem Books, so shake a leg and g...

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

:oops: Yep, well, there really wasn't anything I could do about that unfortunately, due to the timing - I'm sure he'll realise that if / when he gets his hands on a copy. It's not as though it actually benefits me in any way whatsoever having it there now. And at least he can rest assured that anyon...

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

That's the thing, I genuinely didn't know it was Ste's work, and I had absolutely no idea that the little symbol at the top was his sig - I just thought it was part of Capcom's original Ghosts 'n Goblins title from 30+ years ago, and since I was just using the same writing style to form the title of...

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

Re: The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x ... available now from Golem Books!

I have a handful of copies (about 30... so that's six handfuls I suppose) of the very rare, very beautiful and very shiny hardcover limited edition of The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x available, priced at £29.99 a pop plus p&p. To nab one of these last remaining copies while you can, head over to Golem...

Re: Arcade Imperfect ... another retro-gaming book by Jerry Ellis!

Wow - I've had a heck of a time over the past few days dealing with the fallout on Twitter over my attempted use of the GnG loading screen! My first (very bruising) Twitter storm! :( Feel free to check out some of the comments and my responses to them on Twitter, or for a less toxic summary you can ...
