Episode 29 – Shoot Them!

This month we turn our attention to the anthology book Shooter. Edited by Patrick Lindsey and Reid McCarter, the book brings together 15 essays and a forward by Clint Hocking, placing a wide variety of shooter video games in a historical and cultural context.

Unlike previous books, as this one is an anthology and in that spirit we decided to get some of the writers for some micro interviews. We discuss their focus on a broad genre as opposed to a single game, what they were trying to say with the book and the process of putting together such an anthology. Thank you to Shooter contributors Robert Rath, Corey Milne and Javy Gwaltney for joining us on this very special podcast!
