Three months until PRESS RESET: Ruin and Recovery in the Video Game Industry

Hi! It's February 11 here in beautiful snowy New York, which means we're precisely three months away from the launch of Press Reset: Ruin and Recovery in the Video Game Industry, my new book about what happens to people when game studios shut down.

In fact, copies are already out there in the wild! It's funny: video game reviewers are lucky to get copies of games more than three days in advance, but book reviewers get three whole months. And there isn't even an embargo.

Have you pre-ordered the book yet? If not, please consider it. Pre-ordering helps us get good placement in stores (hopefully by May people will be able to go to stores) and on websites like Amazon, where algorithms control our lives and tell everyone which books to read. You can pre-order here or at your favorite bookstore:

For the next few weeks I'll be putting the final touches on the book: fixing a couple of typos, writing up a dedication and acknowledgements section, etc. Then it'll be off to the presses (literally!! I assume) and ready to go. Starting in April I'll be doing some interviews and hopefully some virtual signings, and then in May you'll all be able to read the thing. It'll be here sooner than you think.

Put another way: You'll be able to buy Press Reset wayyyy before you can buy a PS5.

More soon!
