I'll be doing a book signing for my book series "The Atari 2600 Homebrew Companion" volumes 1 & 2 during the show at The Game Czar booth. The Game Czar will also be selling my book there if you haven't had a chance to pick it up from Amazon by then. Hope to see you all there in October!

 

BTW - both Ed Fries and Darrell Spice Jr. have titles in BOTH books too! ;-) Hoping other homebrewers will join us in Houston!!

We are excited to be there again this year. 

I'm bringing the Intellivision for the event, and as Brian mentioned he'll be signing books.  

The Harp Twins will be performing at the event too!

We have SO much stock for this year, so come by and see us!

Just finished updating my presentation for this year, though I'm sure I'll make some minor revisions when I do my practice runs over the next few days.

 

Sadly my SpiceC work hasn't progressed as far as I'd hoped, had a bad case of burnout this year.  I've recently resumed work on it, but what I have done doesn't make for an impressive demo.

A special thank you to Ed Fries for not only speaking at this years Expo, but also for signing my Halo 2600 CIBs.

My sons are in for quite a surprise.
