I noticed via GameSetWatch that there’s an interesting book called “Second Person” in the Front Line Awards. The book is a collection of articles about interactive storytelling in role playing games, and seems to be filled with great articles.
The book is edited by Pat Harrigan and Noah Wardrip-Fruin, of GrandTextAuto fame. Contributors include a star cast of independent game developers, researchers, and designers — notably Greg Costikyan, Nick Montfort, Robert Zubek, and Chris Crawford. (See the TOC below.)
It’s been out since February 2007, so you can get your hands on it right now at Amazon.com for $37.20 at the moment, which includes a 7% discount. For those in the UK, Amazon.co.uk has the book at 5% discount for
