September 28, 2008: Out Of The Box Returns (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=September&y=2008&d=28)



As some of you know, Ken Hite (Suppressed Transmissions (http://www.sjgames.com/suppressed/), GURPS Infinite Worlds (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/infiniteworlds/)) has a column called Out of the Box, (http://www.indiepressrevolution.com/outofthebox/) in which he chronicles products and events that attract his attention from both the "games" and "industry" sides of the gaming industry. Magpie-like, the column was irregular but clever, and always a pleasure to read. It's&#160;been away for a while, but has recently returned, cradled in the offbeat arms of Indie Press Revolution. (http://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/home.php)</p>

For his second installment posted to his new host, Ken has focused his sizable vocabulary on Sean Punch's best-selling series, Dungeon Fantasy. (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/dungeonfantasy/) His analysis is excellent, looking beyond the "mere" quality of the product to the market forces that allowed it to be written and published.</p>

Good stuff, whether you're looking for industry analysis, product reviews, or just find Hite's literary tempo soothing.</p>
