ATTN: Gamers, Writers & Editors

Video games have been around since the early 1990s when we played them over long distance phone lines. Gamers have been forging relationships for 30 years now, and we want to tell some of their stories.

You may have a story or two to tell, about yourself, your friends, or even your marriage, that could only have happened because of online gaming. We’d like to hear it. And so, we believe, would a lot of other people.

We are publishing an anthology of stories by gamers. No fan fiction. Just real stories about real people.

You can note your story in the comments below, or on our Facebook group Stories by Gamers for Gamers at
https://www.facebook.com/groups/932185130543024
or email it to GD<at>Deckard<dot>one.
Don’t worry if you’re not a writer, just say what happened, when, in what game. And if you are a writer or editor, maybe you can help us to ghost-write or edit the stories of others?

This is a brand new venture. So, if you’re interested join us. We’ll work out the details together. Help us to form a group of gamers, writers, and editors and create an anthology of our stories.

  1. Does it have to be online games? I’ve been a gamer since 1981 when I wrote my computer games books, and was a programmer for Addictive Games – and I have the photos to prove it! 🙂

    • @LUDDITE No it does not have to be a story from an online game. Just a story about gamers.

      For example, way back when a 20 meg hard drive was exciting, I had one installed on my “gaming” computer, an old TRS-80, I think. The installer was someone I’d never met, but recommended to me as a gamer. He showed up at our door in biker outfit, complete with chains. Quite disreputable looking.
      While he worked, he kept eyeing the NATO switchblade knife (illegal, there and then) on my desk. After he finished, I asked how much he wanted paid for the job. He just indicated that knife. In those early days, there was a comradeship among gamers.

    What I would love to hear is, in the network of gamers, has anyone who has written a book compatible with those themes ever successfully promoted it through that community?

    • Hundreds, if not thousands, of gaming books have been written, I have no idea how successful each was, but my favorite title is
      “Reality Is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World”

      🙂
      I do know that the video game market has over two billion active participants spending $152,000,000,000 (that’s billions of dollars) a year.
