Writing a book on the infinitely fascinating virtual world of EVE Online sounds slightly less daunting than writing a book on the history of human civilization or something. Still, one journalist is undertaking that difficult task and documenting the long history, backhanded politics, void nullsecs, and armageddons over petty debts the space fleet MMO is famous for.
A History of the Great Empires of Eve Online is currently being Kickstarted by its author Andrew Groen in order to fund the first print run, and the book sounds great. It features interviews with EVE godheads such as Goonswarm’s The Mittani, accounts of the Great Wars, and an art direction that captures that inimitable style of Eve propaganda. It sounds like required reading for catching up on the venerable game’s 11 year history.
