Reading/Playing List

This is a list of things that I like. The first section is games criticism, the second is comics work, and the third is made up of games that I’ve enjoyed.

If you have any suggestions, just leave a comment. If any links go dead, let me know and I will remove them.

The list will be populated over time, always a work in progress, so please don’t think that it is definitive at any moment in time. If something isn’t here, suggest it to me.
