Many Pages and a page format

November 19th, 2009 | Posted by t0bs3n in General - (0 Comments)

During the last weeks we had the chance to gather some interesting authors for the book and we got some facts straight for the book publishing. The picture of it is getting more and more clearly every day.

So today we want to spread our news and our sneak peak with a pdf which will be in the size of the book’s pages. However, it is not the final layout.


Here is the Sneak Peak of the eSports Yearbook 2009 and don’t forget there is still plenty of time to submit your story and we are eager to read it! But you also have to start thinking hard about what you want to write and when to write it, because if you forget it before Christmas, you will let us and your fans down and be not in this book ;/ awwwww ! XD
