Never one shy to give her opinion, Cat DeSpira is a passionate gamer and arcade aficionado. She's also a gifted writer who has penned a number of very personal, very interesting stories for my forthcoming book, The SNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 1 (A-M). Cat captures the zeitgeist like few others, taking readers back to the 1990s in colorful, vivid, memorable fashion. She's also been a stronger supporter of the SNES Omnibus project. Here's her bio as it will appear in the book:
Cat DeSpira is a Pacific Northwest writer, researcher and preservationist whose work uncovering the lost history of gaming has been featured in documentaries, podcasts and several publications. She is most known for her investigation into the urban legend of Polybius and her role in the documentary, TheVideo Craze: Where Were You In ’82? An avid arcade game collector, Cat is convinced that every room dreams of becoming an arcade.
