I still like Commander Keen though.

This is probably(??) the only gaming-related book I have on my shelves (well unless you count the Disgaea artbook I guess) and I can confirm that it is a very good one

Pretty recently I grabbed (or rather, was given) Stanislaw Lem's The Cyberiad which I haven't actually started reading yet because I rarely have time to read for pleasure anymore in between all of the other poisonous crap I waste my time with instead.

This one recently got a new version that makes it more readable thanks to formatting changes.

I've been slowly reading parts of Unpleasant Design. It isn't what I thought it was, but it's still alright, and it offers some interesting viewpoints that I wouldn't have thought of otherwise.

I also picked up It's Worse Than You Think, published last month, because I apparently can't get enough to read about how fucked we all are under Trump.

I read The Raft and part of Heist Society back when I was in middle school.

But there’s this story I read about Dick Thompson never sharing his things. I wish I could remember what it was.
