Dominik Diamond is the master of ceremonies on Channel Four's Gamesmaster, on which he is also an Associate Producer. Instantly recognisable in his vibrant red jacket, complete with cravat and carnation, he is the human high priest to the inhuman and disembodied Gamemaster. Dominik writes the "Big Purple Column" in the monthly "Gamesmaster" magazine and has a regular slot on Steve Wright's afternoon show on BBC Radio One. Gamesmaster is the successful Thursday evening programme from Channel Four that has become the UK's top video games show on TV - a world where the uninitiated tread wearily, a world ruled over by the sardonic whims of the Gamesmaster, the reconstructed World War II flying ace who is the omnipotent, omnipresent embodiment of all game-playing knowledge. This book is a visual encapsulation of the Gamesmaster universe, including the classic games that have met with the Gamesmasters reluctant approval, a critical look at hardware and accessories, the celebrities from "Take That" and "East 17" to Frank Bruno and Vinny Jones who have unwittingly stumbled into the hallowed rig and the previously untold legends that lie behind the whole weird world.
