Ben & Nate

Ben and Nate dust off a 2010s classic that gives us a view of 20 years from now through the lens of 40 years ago, from a guy who maybe spends a little too much time immersed in the cesspool we call pop culture.  It's Ready Player One! Do you remember Atari? Do you remember Dungeons and Dragons? Do you remember Neuromancer? Do you remember untreated severe depression and extreme isolation? We sure do! We sure do for over 300 pages! Join Nate as he tries to keep Ben's rage from exploding as we explore Part I of this epic quest for a stupid video game contest (Wade's words not mine). If this book has anything interesting to say about the pop culture it's studying, this should be a blast! I can't wait!
