I picked up Little Nemo: The Dream Master for the NES at the Fremont Vintage Mall the other day. This is a severely underrated game! It’s charming, tight, imaginative, and it’s got that fucking killer late-eighties Capcom music (think Mega Man II or Duck Tales).
It’s also reintroducing me to the wonderful art of Winsor McCay, who published the original Little Nemo comic strips in the early years of the twentieth century. Cool stuff.
The second Denis Johnson book I’ve read, after Train Dreams, which I found pretty underwhelming. Jesus’ Son was overwhelming in pretty much every way. He’s so good at blowing up moments in his stories into these strange, really wonderful lyrical things without sacrificing accessibility or narrative tone. What a boss.
