For Exposure: The Life and Times of a Small Press Publisher
Publisher: Apex Book Company
by Steve R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/03/2015 15:12:15

For Exposure is a thoroughly enjoyable view deep into the brain and heart of somebody just as deeply "in the industry." If you're an aspiring writer it's a great way to see what your editor/publisher is thinking behind that poker face (or maybe not-so-poker face). If you're a reader it's a great way to find out about what really goes into producing that book you love (or hate) so much. If you're a con-goer it probably just confirms everything you already know - but I wouldn't know because I haven't been to a con...yet! Sure in a sense it's advertising for Apex, but it's advertising that is actually worthwhile reading. I've never met Jason, but the book made me want to. His prose comes across as honest, insightful, and often very humorous. The near-projectile vomiting scene is hilariously excruciating (or excruciatingly hilarious, take your pick), and as a fellow kidney stone sufferer the scene in the hospital is all too familiar - but so is the blessed relief and dreamy happiness of a morphine injection.

Strongly recommended for any lover of SF, horror or publishing (if there's a difference).

The Omen
Publisher: Hyacinth Games
by Steve R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/17/2012 10:36:47

With apologies to the editor, The Omen could have used more editing and proofreading, but it's a solid adventure. While staying short enough for a single evening's enjoyable play, there's enough there to give players a good taste of the Wreck Age world, and bones to build on if the narrator chooses to extend the scenario.
