Overlooked Technical Writers

It's true that most technical writers work in the technology sector, but there are plenty of others practicing the trade in less-noticed fields. One of these is game publishing, where rules, process, and strategies must be clearly and engagingly explained. If you haven't played a game in years, or if you've never peeked into the world of serious gamesmanship, then visit Steve Jackson Games' e23 website. This is their "Warehouse 23" electronic publishing site which offers nearly 2000 PDF-based books, rulesets, and other game material. There is a large selection of free samples, many of which serve as excellent examples of technical writing in this sub-genre. A fun diversion for the curious and inspiration-seeker.
