February 18, The Year Of The Pig
Column #306

Another book announcement! Jelte Rep's 2002 masterwork, Het Groot Mahjong Boek; Alle spelsoorten, achtergronden en geschiedenis, has at last been translated from Dutch into English, coming to America on the Ides of March by Tuttle Publishing.

For reasons I can discuss later, I was unable to participate in helping bring the translation to American bookshelves. I recommended my former Activision associate, author Heather Chandler (Game Production Handbook, Game Localization Handbook). I haven't seen the book yet, but I'm looking forward to it greatly. Here's what Tuttle says on their website about the book, at (edited to fit this column's word count limits):

Highly recommended for your bookshelf. Before I forget: gung hei fa choi - Happy Year of the Pig!
