BASIC Computer Games by David Ahl
David Ahl's BASIC Computer Games was one of the first highly addictive and fun books written for the computer hobbyist. Many a midnight hour was spent keying in these games into their favorite S-100, PDP-8, CP/M, Apple II or other systems supporting various flavors of the BASIC language. Most of these games were simple graphics or text-based although a few classics like Conway's game of life propagated to a new generation of silicon ecosystems thanks to this classic book by David Ahl.
