Early Life[]


Author of more than fifty novels and gaming related titles, notably various Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, Shadowrun novels and adventures, Earthdawn novels and adventures, the original Games Workshop Judge Dredd role-playing game, and material for Paranoia, The Call of Cthulhu and many others.

He was developer or editor of several of GW's classic boardgames in the mid-1980s, including the first two editions of Blood Bowl, and created the background for Dark Future, ported onto the car-based boardgame after the cancellation of an original cyberpunk-themed role-playing game. After ten years as a freelance editor, he returned to the Nottingham-based company in 1997 to help establish the Black Library fiction imprint. Starting as editor he is now publisher and overall manager of the BL Publishing family of imprints, that now also includes Black Industries and Solaris Books.
