Brandon Barrows to edit Gaming Anthology

Local author Brandon Barrows is editing an anthology titled Winning! A Guide to Games that Never Were for Raven Warren. The anthology is now accepting submissions:

The anthology takes inspiration from a series of game guides Nintendo published in the 1980s and 90s, The Official Nintendo Player’s Guide, providing strategies, tips, cheats, etc. for video games. We prefer to see stories between 1,000 words and 3000 words and offer the same kind of info on strategy, tips and so forth for video games of your own invention that don’t exist. We’re looking for humor here, so be crazy, be zany, but above all make us laugh! You can feel free to parody your favorite video game tropes, archetypes and so forth, but do not use any existing games or characters, please.

You will find a good example of the kind of work we’re looking for here, an excerpt from “The Ultimate Game Guide to Life”: http://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/the-ultimate-game-guide-to-your-life-your-adolescence
