This caricature was created by my friend Mel. White. Silly, isn't she?

What I do, mostly, is games. My company is Steve Jackson Games, which is 30 years old as of 2010. Here's a brief personal biography and bibliography. It's a decade or so out of date; in my copious free time, I should polish this up.

A few links for my other interests . . .

Charging madly into the future:

Some good dinosaur and fossil pages:

Pages about water gardening:

My Lego projects:

  • The rules to my Pirate Game are online.
  • Wanna play? Here's a schedule of upcoming games at conventions. (This schedule is completely empty as of late 2010. Awwwwww.)
    • My Pirate Ship Otaku Page . . . information only another Lego Pirate geek would care about.
    • What I have learned about making sails for Lego-style ships.
  • My want list . . . wanna trade? (Yes, BrickLink now provides an efficient marketplace, so one-on-one barter is no longer the easiest way to get extra bits of Lego. Three cheers for BrickLink!

A few favorite Lego links:

  • BrickLink is a well-organized host site for THOUSANDS of little Lego stores. Need a weird part? Need a hundred weird parts? Look here first.
  • RailBricks is a magazine for the Lego train modeler.
  • Jonathan Woodward's Lego Ogre, using Mindstorms robotics. (Currently, this page is down. I'm leaving the link to remind myself to remind him to put it back up when he can.)

And, of course, Steve Jackson Games:

The SJ Games site is almost as old as the Web, and sometimes it seems almost as big and full of Stuff. Check out our various manifestations of High Weirdness and sideways applications of web technology to gaming. Marvel at the time we wasted, and gleefully continue to waste, on the Basement of Warehouse 23!

Other pages I just want to link to:

  • My friend Jackie Hamilton, a.k.a. Kira, a perl/CGI coder, author, graphic artist, and web designer. She's responsible for the look of the SJ Games site and much of its functionality . . . as well as the look of THIS page.
  • Puzzle Pirates. A cool multiplayer online game. Arrrr!
