John Szczepaniak is my kind of cat: a prolific author and journalist writing about video games. He has thoroughly explored a subject I know little about: the inner workings of Japanese game development. I'm grateful to John for his informative and entertaining contributions to the SNES Omnibus project. Judging by our interactions online, John is also a nice guy and a solid citizen. Thanks, John!
Here's John's bio from The SNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 1 (A-M):
John Szczepaniak has been a journalist for over 15 years and has interviewed more than 180 people. He is also a novelist and copy editor. His trilogy of interview books, The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers, is available on Amazon and totals nearly a million words detailing previously undocumented secrets about your favorite Japanese games, direct from the developers themselves. He’s written for Gamasutra, Game Developer Magazine, Retro Gamer, GamesTM, Official PlayStation Magazine, The Escapist and Hardcore Gaming101, plus over a dozen other outlets.
