Pac-Man Collectibles

Even though it's almost a decade old, a review copy of Pac-Man Collectibles arrived in the mail the other day. I promised the publisher I would review the book and publicize said review, so here it is for those who care to take a look:

Whoops! Sorry about that. With the holidays and all, it's been really crazy around here, and I forgot I had asked.

Thanks,

Re: Issue 71 Feedback Thread

Does Retro Gamer #71 include a review or at least a mention of my new book (Classic Home Video Games 1985-1988)? None of the stores near my house carry the magazine. Yup, it's in the Retro Booty section in in a boxout titled "treasure of the month", bottom left corner of page 14. Thanks for the info!

Can anyone tell me what issue of Retro Gamer has a review of my new book? I'd like to get a copy, but no store carries the mag anywhere near me.

Thanks!
