It is nearly official. Yesterday I received a contract from a 'real' publishing company to publish the 4th edition of Phoenix. If all goes according to schedule, the 4th edition will be published (not self-published) in late 2013. More details to follow when everything is finalized.

Looking forward to this when it finally comes out! :-D

Leonard,

Great News! I have all previous editions and will wait patiently for the 4th. The 2nd edition may have been the first Video Game history book I ever read. That along with the early "discovery" of emulation in 1997/1998 got me back into the systems of my early childhood. I'd like to give you my thanks.

I look forward to the new edition....I just wish it would come out sooner instead of towards the end of next year.

I think I started with the 2nd edition or 3rd (the smaller book with a yellow cover) in the 90's. It was the first video game history book I ever read. I read it on the train going to work and couldnt stop. I am getting this one too. :)
