Limited Run Games shared an exciting announcement this morning as it was revealed the company is launching a new book publishing imprint called Press Run. With the new Press Run imprint, Limited Run aims to publish “new, high quality books on video games and game-adjacent topics on a monthly basis, starting today.”
Overseeing Press Run are former game journalists Jeremy Parish (1Up Network, USgamer, IGN, Retronauts) and Jared Petty (IGN, Kinda Funny, Electronic Arts).
“Our long-term goal with Press Run is to create an ever-growing library of great books covering a wide array of topics, across a variety of formats and styles by a diverse lineup of authors,” said Press Run Media Curator Jeremy Parish. “Press Run will exist to keep great books in circulation for as long as people want to have them.
Press Run is described as being designed from the ground up as an “exclusive print label” for original publications courtesy of the Limited Run Games team, along with books from a wide assortment of talented authors from around the world.
“Readers searching for meaningful, informed, and entertaining stories by great writers will find a lot to love in Press Run books,” said Press Run Senior Editor and Project Manager Jared Petty. “We're helping authors share their passion for games with larger audiences... it's a thrill to get up every day and be a small part of that process.”
The first Press Run books are currently in production and will be available for sale once they’re ready to be shipped out. Some books will reportedly be published as limited collector’s editions, while basic editions of every book published by Press Run will continue to circulate for as long as demand exists. Some of the books Limited Run fans can look forward to from Press Run in the near future include Limited Run: The Complete Run Vol. 1, NES Works 1987, Virtual Boy Works, The History of Sunsoft Vol. I, and PlayStation: A Retrospective.

For unknown reasons, this news has escaped me. I believe that the launch of this publisher opens up the prospect of producing high quality books on video games and related subjects. As an aspiring author working on a book, I am excited about this initiative. It's great to see different authors sharing their thoughts. I'm still in the early stages of my writing journey, so I'm using resources like https://penfellow.com/fiction-ghostwriting/ to help bring my ideas to life. So I hope to one day join such a prestigious publishing house and realize my plans as a writer and huge fan of gaming fiction. I look forward to reading more books from Press Run.
