Internet Spaceships Are
Serious Business Ready for Pre-Order
At the FDG conference in Raleigh, NC, I met two other PhD students: Marcus Carter and Darryl Woodford. We were all writing about EVE Online, but up until that point in time had not ever met anyone else working on this particular MMOG. On a lunch break we first hatched our plan to write a book. First, we hosted a workshop at the FDG in Greece, then another at DiGRA Atlanta. So many other EVE scholars came forward and we realized that many people had a lot to things to say about internet spaceships. We wrote a book proposal. Sitting in a brewery in Salt Lake City before heading up the mountain for DiGRA Snowbird, I got the email from University of Minnesota Press that the reviews were positive and they wanted to move forward with publication. And now here we are, with a March 2016 expected release date. This book has been a long time coming, and I’m so excited that it is almost here.
