The author is having some trouble getting everything set up with Amazon's back end right now but Empires of EVE was an incredible read. I backed it in the Kickstarter, never having played the game and it was incredibly fascinating. It was essentially written like a history book about this fictional universe, complete with interviews with players and forum posts/emails put up the way letters to home would have been. It does a great job of explaining all the jargon and making the stories accessible if you don't already know the history. Once he gets the back end Amazon stuff worked out I'd highly recommend giving it a read if you like these kinds of stories.
