Bill "The Game Doctor" Kunkel

As I alluded to in a previous post, one of the highlights of my writing career thusfar has been meeting (and selling a book to) Bill "The Game Doctor" Kunkel, a legend in the field of video game journalism. He was co-founder and executive editor of the groundbreaking Electronic Games (an early '80s mag that I read religiously during my teens) and has been active in video game writing ever since, covering both modern and classic consoles. His latest print gig as editor of Tips & Tricks magazine was cut short due to the cancellation of the magazine, but I stumbled across a website that is currently host to his always insightful, always entertaining musings. Bill adds new content to his column on J2 Games on a regular basis, and the site sells games as well. Retro gamers and modernists alike should definitely check it out.
