I received my copy of Empires of EVE today. Unfortunately the packaging (and handling during shipping) wasn’t perfect and it arrived with several noticeable dents, rips and deformities in the cover, plus slight water or glue damaged to the edge of some pages. That took the shine off things. I’ve read the first 35 odd pages. It is interesting and I think I am going to enjoy it. I’m not sure if it is written in a way that non-EVE players will find worthwhile. I’ll have to consider that again when I am finished.
I’ve had a busy couple weeks, and the next couple weekends are already booked out. EVE isn’t getting quite as much of a look in at the moment.
