*Amendment to this write-up. I have now hung out with Zoe (and Wanda) at two gaming conventions, and she's super cool, as I expected. She even watched my table a few times so I could take breaks. Thanks, Zoe!
I have yet to meet Zoe Howard in person, but I feel like I know her fairly well, based on the “conversations” we’ve had online, and on the personal stories she submitted to both volumes of the SNES Omnibus. Zoe rented a bunch of SNES titles while she was growing up, and those experiences of her family bonding and laughing while playing the games were perfect for inclusion in the books.
