For those who are close friends of mine, I'd say I'd be most surprised if they haven't read about me landing a freelance writing gig for John Wick's 2nd edition of 7th Sea's Pirate Nations book. I haven't really stopped raving about it and it still has be at times wondering if that really happened. But then again, I guess I wouldn't be that surprised given the tremendous lack of support from local geek outlets or blogs on celebrating that story.
On a less personal note, I'd probably cite John Wick's masterfully thought-provoking book, Play Dirty, which offers very strong opinions on gaming which I feel everyone should at least take a look at. I don't expect everyone to agree with its contents, but I do feel people should at least give it a look before making decisions on it. Live in an echo chamber too long, after all, and you might have a rude awakening to realize how... unrefined you've gotten in your years of gaming without broadening your horizons.
