Aleron Kong is one of the best selling LitRPG authors for a reason. Not only was he one of the first in the US to release in the genre, but he has earned bestseller accolades from Amazon, Audible, and the Wall Street Journal. He is one of a handful of early LitRPG authors who inspired me to write Altered Realms: Ascension.
Blaise Corvin, the author behind the series, Delvers LLC, is one of the leaders of the Gamelit and LitRPG communities. His dedication to his craft, and creating a space for everyone to enjoy great books has helped to bring thousands of readers together. Without him, the genre would not be where it is today.
