Classic Game Fest is extremely pleased to welcome back an old friend of CGF, author Brett Weiss.  Weiss is no stranger to Classic Game Fest, and this year marks his 9th appearance at CGF.

Weiss is a freelance writer who has published numerous articles in everything from the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram to Fangoria.  He has also authored several video game books including Classic Home Video Games, 1972-1984: A Complete Reference Guide, Classic Home Video Games, 1985-1988: A Complete Reference Guide, Classic Home Video Games, 1989-1990: A Complete Guide to Sega Genesis, Neo Geo and TurboGrafx-16 Games, and more.  Brett maintains a blog,, that details all his professional endeavors, current game news, and reflections on the past.  It’s well worth checking out since he’s done so much since he began getting published in 1997.  Currently, Weiss appears on the weekly HoldSquare podcast.
