    Tom Bissell is a prizewinning writer who published three widely acclaimed books before the age of 34. He is also an obsessive gamer who has spent untold hours in front of his various video game consoles, playing titles such as Far Cry 2, Left 4 Dead, BioShock, and Oblivion for, literally, days. If you are reading this copy, the same thing can probably be said of you, or of someone you know.

    Tom Bissell is engaging and fascinating as he guides you through both the gaming industry in general and his personal experience with gaming. As a gamer who enjoys stories in games, this book was everything I was hoping for and more.

    Hermann Kermit Warm is going to die. The enigmatic and powerful man known only as the Commodore has ordered it, and his henchmen, Eli and Charlie Sisters, will make sure of it. Though Eli doesn't share his brother's appetite for whiskey and killing, he's never known anything else. But their prey isn't an easy mark, and on the road from Oregon City to Warm's gold-mining claim outside Sacramento, Eli begins to question what he does for a living–and whom he does it for.

    Story

    Found this tale very intersting from start to finish, with the author producing good western gun slinging while still connecting you to the characters and the world they inhabited. And the narration is some of the best I've ever heard in a fiction book.

  • Zombie Spaceship Wasteland: A Book by Patton Oswalt

    Oswalt combines memoir with uproarious humor, from snow forts to Dungeons & Dragons to gifts from Grandma that had to be explained. He remem­bers his teen summers spent working in a movie Cineplex and his early years doing stand-up. Readers are also treated to several graphic elements, includ­ing a vampire tale for the rest of us and some greeting cards with a special touch.

    Just hilarious. And in many places very affecting. Just well done from start to finish; Patton's performance really shines through in his material too.
