    VOTE! While the subjects of most of our books are proposed by our authors, one future title will be selected by YOU. After you make your pledge, simply hit the "Comments" section and let us know what classic game you'd like to read a book about. The game that receives the most votes will become the subject of the very first fan-selected BSB title.
