A brilliant, incisive, and very funny journey through the adolescence of the computer game industry, delving with wit and charm into the fascinating question of exactly whose story is being told.
The idea of what drives people to make games - other than the fact that it seems like a fun thing to do - remains one that continues to feel frustratingly out of reach...Austin Grossman's new novel might be the most illuminating effort at answering that question yet.
Every bit as fun as you hope it's going to be, and also much more...Full of wit, ingenuity, and nostalgia - a meditation on what it means to be the hero of the game.
Praise for Soon I Will Be Invincible
Imaginative and, at times, achingly real...an admirable addition to the genre
Every comic-book cliché in this witty, stunning debut is lovingly embraced, then turned inside out.
Grossman has a superpower himself - it's called writing . . . winning, smart and funny
