Slow Times at Gold Rush Games

I ran across a reference to a post from 2004 explaining Gold Rush Games current plans. It's a pity the roleplaying games industry is such a difficult place to make a living.

Publishing On Demand

I also ran across an article that gives some of the reasons that Print-On-Demand hasn't been the success that many expected.

Savanti Books Edition of Dray Prescott Books

The most recent summary of the situation with the Savanti Books edition of the Dray is dismal but not surprising.

Recent Reading

  • Shakespeare's Christmas, by Charlaine Harris, copyright 1998; Dell Publishing/Random House Inc., November 1999; reprinted by arraignment with St. Martin's Press. These Shakespeare books are very good.

  • Singularity Sky, by Charles Stross, copyright 2003; Ace Books, July 2004. Enjoyable. I'll have to look for other books by Stross.
