There have been several volumes of Graphics Gems.  I believe that the
current volume is IV.  As far as I can tell, most of the source code is C.
 You can order it from Quantum Books, Cambridge, MA, 617-494-5042, fax

Boston Computer Society, they will give you a 10% discount.

I have also seen several volumes at Wordsworth Books, Cambridge, MA,

folks at Wordsworth are pretty friendly; they cater to book lovers.

Good luck!

1. books: Graphic Gems, Game programming Gems


I'm looking for books on the subject of game development, especially of
graphics and 3D algorithms, and what I've read so far about the "Graphic
Gems" series and the "Game Programming Gems" series looks promising. Only
problem is the pricetags, so I'd like to ask around before buying..

My questions to all who know the books:

Currently there seem to be 3 parts of the "Game Programming Gems". Which
part would be the best to buy? Are they complementary or do the get

Same question about the Graphic Gems... which one would be the best to get?
Is the original "Graphic Gems" still up to date? How outdated are the
algorithms described there? Are these books bound to any special APIs or are
the topics more generic?

Thanks for helping!
