Ernest Cline is best known for his New York Times Bestselling novels, Ready Player One and Armada. If you have not read these, and you are a classic video game fan, stop what you’re doing, grab a copy of these, get cozy, and lose yourself in geeky wonder. Ready Player One is set to be a major motion picture by Warner Bros. and has the incomparable Steven Spielberg attached! Armada is also being adapted into a film for Universal Pictures. Cline actually had his breakthrough in movies when he wrote the cult classic film, Fanboys. And there is no doubt that Ernest Cline is a fan of classic video games. His books are full of references to Atari, arcades, and other retro gaming memories. Check out his Ernest Cline’s website for more information.
