IAm the author of "Stay Awhile and Listen - Book I," an eBook that recounts the early years of Blizzard Entertainment and Blizzard North. AMA.
Hey, Reddit! My name is David L. Craddock, and I've spent the past five years researching and writing "Stay Awhile and Listen," a trilogy of eBooks that chronicles the history of Diablo/Diablo II developer Blizzard North and Blizzard Entertainment. I released the first volume of "SAAL" on 10/31 for Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, and Nook; it covers the founding of the two Blizzards and the making of WarCraft, WarCraft II, and Diablo. You can read a summary of, and buy the book, here.
To publish SAAL, my wife, Amie Kline, and I founded Digital Monument Press, a publisher devoted to the video-game industry. I've also published five short stories and have a young adult novel, HERITAGE, due out next summer from Tyche Books.
EDIT #2: I'll be around until 7:30 p.m. EST. Keep the great questions coming!
EDIT #3: Thank you for a fantastic AMA, Reddit. You all asked great questions, and some of you even showed concern for my soul, which was unexpected but appreciated. I hope you'll read STAY AWHILE AND LISTEN - BOOK I and leave a review to let me know what you thought. Talk to you soon!
