In 2017, I published a Final Fantasy 7 oral history on Polygon. It was a big thing! The longest story I’d ever done. Too long for the internet, really. So we ended up teaming up with Read-Only Memory to turn it into a book.

A Kickstarter campaign, a hundred or so emails and some great bookmarks later, it’s here: 500 Years Later: An Oral History of Final Fantasy VII.
