Specifically, I'd like you to tell me which shareware games released on the platform are worthy of coverage or at least a mention in the book. I'm aware of Jeff Minter's Llamatron and at some point remember seeing a really positive Cybernetix review, and I've just today found out about Ian Scott's Grandad games, but that's about it. (My prior knowledge is mostly on the PC and especially Mac side — doubly so after my previous book.)
So what other games should I be aware of as I continue my research and look for more people to interview? Also, are there any champions of shareware on Atari (like magazine/newsletter editors and columnists, distributors, and other non-dev people) that I should seek out?
