A list of projects, past and present.

Killing is Harmless: A Critical Reading of Spec Ops: The Line

I wrote a book about the game Spec Ops: The Line. A lot of people seemed to really enjoy it, and since its publication a whole range of new projects have launched with other writers turning to long-form writing and independent publishing models. You can buy Killing is Harmless from its publisher, Stolen Projects, here or Amazon here.

Modern Warfare Critical Let’s Play

I am currently producing a video series performing a close analyses of the Modern Warfare trilogy of games. I am adding videos to this playlist twice weekly. I am supporting this project with a Patreon page.

Towards Dawn

Towards Dawn was a blog that went for a couple of years in which I started a new Minecraft game and walked east for over sixty in-game days. Part perma-death experiment, part Let’s-Play-Before-Let’s-Play-Was-Really-A-Thing. I put all the screenshots from the entire adventure into a video at the end of it.

Ghosts in the Machine

I co-edited an anthology of short stories about game glitches with critic Lana Polansky called Ghosts in the Machine. Lana deserves most of the credit for the idea of the book, and the authors deserve all of the credit for the great short stories, but I did co-edit it.

Press Select

Press Select is a publishing company critic Dan Golding and myself are trying to get off the ground, with the goal of creating a platform for a whole range of books like and unlike Killing is Harmless. We haven’t published anything yet, but plan to in the next year.
