My name is Jeffrey Wittenhagen or thesubcon3 as many forums know me. I am a writer, avid retro collector and gamer. Since the early 2000s I have ran a few different content based websites such as vgMastersClub, Hagen’s Horror Haven, Serial Slasher Inc. and contributed to Retrogaming Times Monthly for many years. Now I write many books of various unique styles, typically on retro video games!

    Hello ! I’m glad I’ve found a way to contact you… I’m desperatly looking for your book “Hidden Treasures: Rare & Unappreciated Gems”. Has it been eventually printed in any way ? I really want a copy of this one, please 🙂

      Well the thing is the publishing company I was going through went under before the print version came out. I’m not too familiar with self publishing so I haven’t yet. As soon as I do I’ll let you know.

    OK, thank you so much ! Can’t wait for this print version to be released… Maybe lulu.com or something similar could help ?

    Are you sure ? PDF seems perfect for Lulu :


    In the middle of the page (left column), it says : “Lulu accepts various file formats but prefers that you submit your files in PDF format.”

    Your snes collectors book is fantastic!
    Is there a chance that you write the same about the Sega Genesis?
    Or is Sega your kryptonite? 🙂
