Description Edit | History

Albie Fiore (c. 1946 in Southend-on-Sea, Essex - July 28, 2009) was a London game designer who was a long-standing editor of the regular Fiend Factory column in the Games Workshop Ltd. magazine White Dwarf, the editor of the magazine Games & Puzzles, and a compiler of the London Guardian's cryptic crossword. He co-authored the book Rubik's Puzzles and was known for composing puzzles and crosswords. He also worked as a contributor to the television show The Crystal Maze, a writer and researcher of children's comic characters such as Scooby Doo, an antiques dealer specializing in slot machines, and a chef on private yachts. He was also known as being an avid bike-rider and as resembling Doctor Who's Tom Baker.

He died at age 63 from complications from a lung tumor.

In the Guardian, he used the pseudonym Taupi, a nickname he acquired as a student when working on a French farm. In the Financial Times, he used the pseudonym Satori in 2002 which means "sudden enlightenment" in Zen Buddhism and as a "mole" in Basque.
