Books from 8bitworkshop.com:
- Making Games For The NES
- Making Games For The Atari 2600
- Making 8-Bit Arcade Games in C
- Designing Video Game Hardware in Verilog

Books from Oscar Toledo:
- Toledo Nanochess
- Programming Boot Sector Games
- More Boot Sector Games

Books from ChibiAkumas:
- Learn Multiplatform Assembly Games vol. 1
- Learn Multiplatform Assembly Games vol. 2

Books from Fabien Sanglard:
- Game Engine Black Book: Wolfenstein 3D

All of them are available digitally (unfortunatelly not all on kindle format).
