SNES Omnibus Writer Spotlight #45 - Blake J. Harris

Blake J. Harris is one of the few retro gaming authors who has hit the big time and broken into the mainstream. His book, Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battlethat Defined a Generation, is a best-seller that has been reviewed almost 500 times on Amazon. It is currently being adapted into a feature film by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Scott Rudin. I’ve spoken to many people who enjoyed the unusual (for non-fiction) narrative structure of Console Wars, and you can still find it on the shelves of many bookstores.

I don’t really know Blake outside of a few brief exchanges online, but I’m proud to say he has a story in The Super Nintendo and Its Games,Vol. 1 (A–M). He wrote a cool nostalgia piece about a key title, Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball. Thanks, Blake!
