Reading Material Made Of Old Games, Mountains and Dunes
I got what I wanted today at Borders. The magazine section was a mess and the staff were starting their end-of-the-day clean up rounds when I found issue 65 of Retro Gamer under a bunch of PSM magazines.
Malaysian freeloaders tend to treat their reading material with disdain and I did see quite a number of magazines in sorry, damaged states. I wonder what do stores do with these magazines. Send them back to be recycled? Maybe. But I know the good ones that are unsold will usually end up in back-issue stores.
I don’t normally settle for one item in a bookstore, so I ended up buying two books. The first one was Into Thin Air, a true story recounting the disastrous 10th of May 1996 on Mount Everest whereby 9 climbers from 4 different expeditions lost their lives.
John Krakauer first wrote Into Thin Air as an article for Outside magazine, and I remember reading his account as a survivor on the magazine’s website a couple of years back. It remains one of the best written articles I’ve ever read. Check it out over here.
The second book is a new one from Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, titled Paul of Dune. Touted as the epic sequel to Dune (written by Frank Herbert, Brian’s father), it ‘s supposed to bridge the first book with the second book in the series, Dune Messiah.
