Shane Stein is a big shot financial wizard living in Dallas (I live in the the neighboring city of Fort Worth), and I'm glad he reached out to me to be a part of my humble little book project (okay, it's actually a pretty big two-volume set, but I digress). Shane's Super Nintendo stories, drawing from his days as a journalist in college, were highly polished, meaning they required very little editing on my part. They were also a lot of fun to read. Better yet, Shane is a devoted family man and a super nice guy. We had lunch a few weeks ago (where I met him in person for the first time), and we instantly had a million things to talk about, including the Dallas Cowboys, the Dallas Mavericks, comic books, and of course video games. Don't be fooled by Shane's life as a civilian--he knows his stuff! Hope to have lunch with Shane again real soon, especially since he paid. Seriously, I already consider him a good friend. Thanks, Shane!
