Magazine Writing

- From 2000-2003, I wrote two regular columns for the UK-based adventure gaming magazine Valkyrie - News From The Trenches and Saints and Sinners. In a reader poll conducted in 2001, the columns were rated the two most popular columns in the entire magazine. Both columns ran steady until Valkyrie folded in 2003. Below are links to the archived columns on the Valkyrie website.

Creative writing / Blogging

- A Month of Sundays, Chapter 3 - a sample chapter from my collection of short stories.

- Parts Unknown is a music blog and podcast that I update regularly.

- Livejournal posts: I've maintained a LiveJournal since 2003. Below are some of the better examples of my casual writing style.

One LiveJournal community, Rabbit Hole Day, celebrates the life of Lewis Carroll, author of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, by encouraging LJ users to post to their journals as if they're experiencing events similar to Alice's. Below are links to my Rabbit Hole Day entries, which also include a few illustrations.
