I am such a geek.

And, as such, I have fondness for certain geeky things. Video games, for one. Now that's not terribly uncommon, there are plenty of people around the world with a geeky fascination for video games, so nothing worth mentioning there, really.

I also have a fondness for newspaper style guides. I have a copy of the CP Stylebook at home, on my bookshelf. Sometimes I browse through it for fun. I really do.

Well, would you get a load of this.

Someone (well, technically three someones) has put together a newspaper style guide for video games. It's like peanut butter and chocolate for someone like me -- two great tastes that taste great together.

The best part is that they're giving away a *free* copy of the e-book version for any working writer. So I have, of course, sent off my request. Not because I spend a whole lot of time writing about video games -- I don't, much to my occasional surprise -- but because, like the CP stylebook, I'll actually read this silly little thing for fun. More than once, I'm sure.
