Books and Magazines.

This section features any books or magazines that I find that have anything to do with handheld games. Included are vintage and recent/current publications. Industry/Trade Show publications are also included (if they deal only with a specific manufacturer they will also be listed on the corresponding page of their handheld games). Some of them only show the cover, others may have some or all of the handheld related pages. Magazines are listed in chronological order, books and trade publications are listed alphabetically.
