    I don't think I ever finished it all the way, but I did get a mention. The LitRPG Forum also gets a small mention too! I wonder if the author lurks here?

    On a semi-related note, I found this book (The Land of Diarrhea Online) while putting together this week's LitRPG Reads newsletter. Looks like a sequel?

    Personally, I'm working on relaunching Snow Punk (Previously Core Punk), editing Gear Punk and getting it ready for the end of the month or early March, and also writing the last of Moon Wars. I think I'm most excited about the last because I'm working with a great editor. Might turn out to be my best book? Can you guess any influences by the cover?

    wow that site is something else. Is that who he got into litigation over? Assumed it was from someone copying his material on Patreon.

    Might be. It would certainly be more justified than it seemed. This steps right to the bounds of carricature and open mockery/insults.

    It wasn't bad. And if the fire is in your belly, might as well write a long book about the story.

    Got all my "The Land" books together now. Not sure why I still have the old covers though.

    Ah, haha. I might have to give it a look this weekend. Gotta get my words for the day in, though. I've got a half-dozen fans to keep happy - at least! ;)

    No need, I'll PM you the quote if you like, for your scene.
    “Just a website builder,” Allen noted. “I really liked the forum you built.” “Thanks. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” Saul shot back.

    The second book is very different than the first. I don't think it is nearly as well done, but it also is less directly about Aleron... At least it does it in a different way. There are introductions to almost every LITRPG authors too.
    It goes into more about how people are grouping up and bashing others. How the main group think in terms of hierarchy, all based on sales & profit.
    There is also a funny debate about what the definition of what litrpg is, and the various similar names. In interesting portrayal about how Aleron says if there are no stats, it's not LITRPG. Thought I have read a few D&D based books that with Role Playing characters in a supposed Game world that had no explicit Stats. I thought those books from the 80s defined LITRPG nicely.
    It is kinda like those, your not leaving this room until you give me a definition... Unless you pay me in Zorkmids
