Description Edit | History

I am the Managing Editor and owner of Sixtystone Press Limited, a small imprint licensed by Chaosium Inc. to produce Call of Cthulhu books.

I am also the Chief Editor and publisher of The Black Seal, the magazine of modern horror gaming. Issue number 4 is in layout now, as is the fabled Vietnam issue: "The Black Seal's Cthulhu By Arclight".

I used to edit "Worlds of Cthulhu" magazine, which was the only officially licenced Call of Cthulhu magazine. I co-edited the first two issues with the famous Doc Herber, and learnt a lot from him. Worlds of Cthulhu lasted six issues before Pegasus Speile the publishers had to cancel the magazine due to poor sales. Just Germany can support the German-language "Cthuloid Welten" (mother of "Worlds of Cthulhu"), but the English-speaking world cannot. I suspect the considerably larger German print run and lower issue cost contribute to Cthuloid Welten's success, where Worlds of Cthulhu supplement level price tag would not have boosted sales.

Traveller was my first RPG played, followed by AD&D, and then Call of Cthulhu. I spent the summer of 1984 playing through "Curse of the Cthonians" and "the Fungi from Yuggoth" and I've been hooked ever since.

I have written for my own Sixtystone Press, Pagan Publishing, Chaosium, Fantasy Flight; and for the Black Seal, The Whisperer, Worlds of Cthulhu and the Valkyrie magazines.

I regularly attend the Continuum convention, held every other year, in Leicester, UK.

My regular gaming night is Wednesday, and I am a member of 20 years standing of Alder Valley Games Society. See you there.
