Games and Fiction

I just launched into a new series of articles over at The Escapist. The plan is to sit in the crossroads of games and fiction and toss around a few Molotov cocktails to see what bursts into flames. Having written more than a few games, novels, and gaming novels over the decades, I’m curious to find out.

In this month’s column, I cover the history of gaming fiction. It turns out that hobby games and fiction have been rooted together since their very first moments, and we can lay the blame for that squarely at the feet of H. G. Wells himself. I always knew I liked him.

Be sure to check it out, and if you have suggestions for future bits, be sure to let me know.
