Good Reading

There are two articles in The Escapist this week that are well worth mentioning.

The first is by Sean Sands (Elysium at Gamer With Jobs) and it's titled "Christmas Behind the Cash Register." It's about managing a game store at Christmas, and it's full of dark whimsy that makes it an excellent read. You can read it here.

[And GOOD GRIEF--I can't believe I confused Elysium with Fletcher (Russ Pitts). The problem is that all the GWJ and ex-GWJ guys have names and handles and even after e-mailing them for years I STILL can't keep it all straight. Arggghhh.]

The second is by Lara Crigger, who has also written for Gamers With Jobs. It's a beautiful piece of writing called "Maajh, Ladies," and it's about her grandmother and majong--well, and life. Like I said, it's a beautifully written piece, and you can read it here.

It's pretty clear at this point that Gamers With Jobs has taken over the world. In another few years, 90% of all the good articles on gaming will be written by current or ex-Gamers With Jobs writers.

With the other 10% being written by Tom Chick, obviously.
