I don't know the extent of your book, but navigating asset management has been a bit of a challenge. I'm using cl-devil and looked at freeimage, also looking for 3d model importing and the like. Good old Basic Computer Games. I was so disappointed by what a racist David Ahl turned out to be. He was responsible for the incredibly disrespectful "Ninja-Endo" character in lates Atari comics. Do you have any more information on that?
That's what I was referring to. Interesting historical detail.

Thanks Keyframe- I will look into the Franz telnet issue Otherwise, this tutorial is getting a bit long in the tooth and I should probably give it a refresh sometime soon. The setf issue is a known issue for some Lisps- I should have used defparameter instead of setf, but I was still pretty green many years ago when this tutorial was written.

Do any of the games in here use graphics? I feel like some really awesome "math art" could be made with Lisp.
You should check out lispbuilder-sdl or RLX. I'm also working on CL bindings to Ogre but they're not really ready for public consumption. I'm using it right now with sbcl and the glut wrapper cl-glut.

Beyond that, software development is still software development, so the actual "work" still ends up being the same, no matter what domain you work in. That said, I think both the legal and medical fields have an enormous IT future that I highly recommend pursuing- There's still a lot of innovation possible.
Nice work, brother! I love that logo.
