I like pie!
“The pleasure of reading a story and wondering what will come next for the hero is a pleasure that has lasted for centuries and, I think, will always be with us.”
— Stan Lee
I’ve written before about how limited my experiences with arcades has been, and while that’s a perennial topic with me whenever it comes up, there’s more to tell than what video games I’ve never ever played: the subject of this entry is going to be pinball, and while there are some good associations, there are also some painful ones, too.
This was the year my father passed away, and he was a pinball enthusiast.
Actually, that may be a bit of an understatement.
At some point, I really need to talk about my love of these books. Picked the first two up on Osan Air Base in South Korea in 1987, from a rather large Stars and Stripes bookstore. They travelled well, kept me engaged and alive through a lot. I also loved Gary Chalk's illustrations in the original volumes (later I would encounter his work on the 2nd edition Talisman board game).
This looks somewhat familiar.
