|About the Book|
伝説のインターネット - ヘヴン セント ゲーミングInternet Legends is a Japanese book series published by Golden Yen Publishing from the small farming town of Pippu, Hokkaido. The series focuses on internet celebrities from around the world. The series has covered many topics including- big social networking giants like Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Tom Anderson of MySpace, to big YouTubers like Toby Turner/Tobuscus and the Vlogbrothers John and Hank Green, to smaller self publishing website like Snafu Comics and the topic of this book Heaven Sent Gaming. The books have been distributed for free since 2010, and the series spans 12 individual books. I was lucky enough to be given the privilege of doing the same by distributing the books in English. This book, Heaven Sent Gaming is the newest in the series, as of the time of writing this forward, it was released on June 16, 2014.The Internet Legends series relies on deep-digging through references in public records, and on deep-digging through the work sources and histories of the subjects. This topic was particularly hard to research, though we stand by our findings. We have a team of editors responsible for fact-checking and reliability, they each come from multiple backgrounds in book publishing. Including seven individuals with experience at- 静山社 (Say-Zan-Sha), リクルート (Recruit), 小学館 (Shogakukan), and ゼンリン (Zenrin). We wish the best for Heaven Sent Gaming, and wish them luck through to the future. Any subject we cover, must have a history of reliability and must have published retractions- Heaven Sent Gaming is not any different and should be considered an independently reliable source, as they have posted retractions and admitted mistake in the past. Translators of our books must also ensure fact-checking with a team of at least three fact-checkers (that may remain anonymous, though their work histories should be released). The three editors and fact-checkers of the English translation of this book have backgrounds working at Scholastic, Penguin Random House, Macmillan, and HarperCollins.
