Author Andrea Contato has a crowd funding project you may be interesting! He's written an in-depth history of Richard Garriott and the Ultima series and is raising the money to translate and produce a physical print run! Here's the introduction:

Greetings, traveller!

If you have played a computer role-playing game (CRPG), chances are Ultima played a part in its inspiration. Created by visionary Richard Garriott, and produced by his company Origin Systems, Inc., Ultima is one of the most important and influential CRPG series in the world. Through the Moongate illuminates the path of the Ultima games' history and the creative people behind this landmark series. It also covers some of Origin's other games, especially Wing Commander, and touches on several contemporary titles. Many of these tales have never before been told.

Are you ready to step... Through the Moongate?

The entire book sounds wonderful... but the coverage of Wing Commander is obviously especially exciting for our community! And it sounds like Mr. Contanto has done his homework: Origin veteran Siobhan Beeman, Director of Wing Commander II: Vengeance of the Kilrathi tweeted "I had a great time chatting with the author, Andrea Contato, about my time at Origin--Ultima VI, Savage Empire, and Wing Commander 2. I know he got a lot of material from other old-timers too. I'm definitely looking forward to reading this book when it's available!" You can learn more and back the project here. Who knows, if it's a success then maybe 'Through the Jump Point' could be next!
