The kind folks over at Language at Play have posted an interview with me about Bitmap Books’ A Guide to Japanese Role-Playing Games. It details my own personal history with the genre, how the book came to be, and the enormous about of work that went into creating a 650 page book that covers forty years of history. Please check it out!
An Interview with Kurt Kalata: The Ten Year Quest for the Definitive Book of JRPGs
Copies of the book are currently available from third party sellers on Amazon. However, the next print will be available in early May on Bitmap Book’s site, which should not only be a bit cheaper (depending on your location and the exchange rate) but also come shipped in their signature packaging to ensure it arrives in the best possible condition.
