Here's a website I highly recommend: It has a ton of articles on the history and design of adventure games. The recommended reading order is by order of publication, since it goes chronologically, and the articles are also available in ebook format in volumes for a more concentrated reading.

The ultimate chronicle of the BattleTech/MechWarrior universe, with 304 pages brimming with hundreds of color and B&W illustrations that span BattleTech's 25-year legacy.

Okay so tumblr is banning rotating cubes saying it's porn and facebook banned saying "i'm gay" saying it's sexual solicitation and Twitter always seemed like it could disappear at any moment

I feel like we need to be getting ready for Mass Migration to Mastodon, which means we need to fix anything that keeps Mastodon from being usable, and there is in fact something that keeps Mastodon from being usable, there's one specific thing, it's this:

@kevinbeynon @inventaire @orbifx @switchingsocial One service I would like to see is a way to write a review of a short story and have it linked to the story's appearance in various magazines, anthologies, collections, etc.

That way, people interested in reading it can find it wherever it appears and don't have to depend on finding it in a particular book / magazine.
