Ready Player One is getting a fancy edition

 

Among us at the Arcade Hotel, Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One is probably one of our most favourite reads of the past couple of years.

This amazing story filled with 80’s pop culture references ranging from video games, sitcoms, books, Dungeons & Drangons to Movies and Saturday Morning Cartoons, is already available in different formats. There’s the paperback, the hardback, the digital book, heck there is even an audiobook read by Will Wheaton! (Will frigging Wheaton!!) And now, there is the edition that trumps all previous editions.
It’s leather-bound, accented in 22kt gold, gilded page ends, fabric end sheets and a satin ribbon marker. Pretty fancy eh? To top it all of it is signed by Ernest Cline himself.

If you want one for yourself, head over to EastonPress.com to order yours.

No science club for us but founding and perpetual members of the “smoking behind the school building” club. We did not spend our Saturday evenings painting Warhammer and had plenty of dates to choose for prom. But you know the ways of the Lord (of the rings) are mysterious and so fast forward 15 years and here we are, immersed in the world of video games with little practical knowledge but an enthusiasm as big as Jabba The Hutt´s appetite. Oh, the twists and turns of life… Anyways, this year we decided that who better than us, Jens and Paz, the least experienced..

The Arcade: First Contact. Haaaaave you met Lesley?

It’s a little family what we have going on here at The Arcade. And because we want you to get to know us better, we decided to feature our staff members in a series called “The Arcade: First Contact”. You already know we are no friends of conventionalisms, so we figured out what a better way to start this series than from the very bottom, meaning our last addition to the bunch. Lesley arrived a couple of weeks ago but he’s already turned our worlds upside down. His enthusiasm is contagious and he seems to fear nothing, not even the longest most eventful night shift!
