More info about The SNES Omnibus:

The SNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 1 (A-M) features more than 2,000 full-color images, including box art, cartridges, screenshots, and vintage gaming ads. This is a beautifully illustrated, massive (9x12), professionally published (by Schiffer Publishing), full color, hardcover book—416 pages of Super Nintendo goodness, including a super cool work of art centerfold by the amazingly talented Thor Thorvaldson.

The book is a fun, informative, and historically important look at ALL the original Super Nintendo games released in the U.S. beginning with the letters A-M. More than 350 games are featured, including such iconic titles as Chrono Trigger, Contra III: The Alien Wars, Donkey Kong Country, EarthBound, F-Zero, Final Fantasy II and III, Gradius III, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Each game, whether obscure or mainstream, is covered in exhaustive detail, with thoroughly vetted, accurate information. In addition to thorough, well-written gameplay descriptions, the book includes reviews, fun facts, historical and development info, quotes from vintage magazines, and, best of all, nostalgic stories about many of the games from programmers, authors, convention exhibitors, video game store owners, YouTube celebs, and other industry insiders. Every game gets at least one page! There are also supplemental essays on the Console Wars and Emulation for the Super Nintendo.

You can click on this image for a closer look at the page, but the book itself will appear larger and have much clearer text and art.
Contributing writers of the wonderful, funny, sad, nostalgic, and life- and game-affirming stories in the book include Steve Woita (former Atari programmer), David Warhol (former SNES programmer), Blake J. Harris (author of Console Wars), Kurt Kalata (Hardcore Gaming 101), Tim Lapetino (author of Art of Atari), Shawn Long (RGT 85 on YouTube), Rob McCallum (filmmaker), Brittney Brombacher (BlondeNerd.com), Eric “8-Bit Eric” Perez (YouTuber), Christopher “The Old Ass Retro Gamer” Pico (YouTuber), Benjamin Reeves (senior editor for Game Informer), John Riggs (RIGG’d Games on YouTube), Greg Sewart (former Previews and Reviews Editor for Electronic Gaming Monthly), Zoe Howard (writer, www.retroislife.com), and too many others to list.

These stories will take you back to the 1990s, when people read Nintendo Power, GamePro and Electronic Gaming Monthly to get their fill of info on new games, when renting a fistful of cartridges at Blockbuster to play with friends all weekend was a rite of passage, and when grabbing those little tickets in the aisles of Toys “R” Us and taking them to that magical, game-filled room at the front of the store was about as thrilling as going to Disneyland.

Vol. 2 will be out in the spring of 2019, but you can order Vol. 1 NOW. The SNES Omnibus Vol. 1 is a book for collectors, retro gamers, nostalgia enthusiasts, Super Nintendo fans, and anyone who wants a nice, colorful addition to their coffee table, office, arcade, video game store, or game room library. $49.99 plus $9.99 shipping/handling. U.S. only. Simply Pal $59.98 to brettw105@sbcglobal.net.   THANKS!
