Just the other day I was talking about how there aren’t hordes of books about arcades written these days so naturally I have to come across some news about another book where arcades are the primary subject. This is making me want to write my own book about arcades but I’m not sure what I would focus on or what I could write about that would be any different from what you see here on AH everyday.
Anyways, the new book is called Invading Spaces: A Beginner’s Guide to Collecting Arcade Games and it will debut at the Oklahoma Video Game Expo on the 9th of this month. The book is written by avid classic game fan and arcade collector Rob O’Hara and offers tips, experiences and terminology for readers so that if they are getting into the hobby for the first time or they are still green with it, they can learn from someone who has already tread that path. Even though I have collected some games since 2000, I would like to pick this up myself as it sounds like a great read.
