Seven Stories Press spent the weekend in Orlando at Minecon 2013. What an experience! There were 7,500 diehard Minecraft fans of all ages, all full of frantic energy and all eager to check out the first book on the history of the game and Notch’s childhood and his gaming inspirations. The authors, Swedish journalists Daniel Goldberg and Linus Larsson, signed copies of the book and answered questions from fans all weekend. We heard many cries of “I hate reading but I’ll read this book!” and parents claiming, “this is a book I can actually get my kid to read.” We’re thrilled to have reached so many dedicated fans this weekend and we can’t wait for Minecon 2014!
Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus “Notch” Persson and the Game that Changed Everything is on sale today and if you order from our website you’ll receive a copy signed by the authors.
For a sneak peek and more info, check out this excerpt in Wired and this wonderful review in Salon: “Minecraft is indeed an unlikely tale. That’s what makes it so great, and that’s why this little book will make a terrific holiday gift for the gamer in your life.”
