| FICTION & BOOKS |

In addition to my game development work, I am an active speculative fiction writer, as well as an editor and former games critic.

The speculative fiction anthology I co-edited, Those Who Make Us: Canadian Creature, Myth, and Monster Stories (Exile Editions, 2016) was nominated in the Shirley Jackson Awards.
