When author Daniel Thomas MacInnes dissects the pop culture universe, you better sit up and pay attention. Greatest Hits: An Anthology in Four Volumes is a compilation book that features chapters from two four separate book volumes, two currently available, another two currently in production, Videogame Classics, and Conversations on Ghibli.

“An Anthology in Four Volumes” that examines, dissects and satirizes the pop culture universe from every angle: film and television, animation and live-action, music and audio, video and computer games, politics and social commentary. Every chapter is filled with sharp wit, humor and insight.

Zen Arcade: A collection of 140 classic video game reviews across six legendary systems, and all released on modern formats. Essential reading for fans, collectors and designers alike. The new standard for game criticism.

Pop Life: Essays and social commentary addressing every aspect of popular culture and the arts, including film and television, music and audio, retro and modern video games, politics and daily life.

Videogame Classics: Reviews celebrating the greatest video and computer games ever made, from legendary blockbuster hits to the most obscure classics. Every era and style of video game is covered, from Pong to Minecraft and all points in between. (Full book coming soon.)

Conversations on Ghibli: A comprehensive study of the animated movies of Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, founders of the legendary Studio Ghibli. For lovers of Ghibli, animation and the movies, this is essential reading. (Full book coming soon.)
