What are your favourite games?

There are hundreds... Ars Magica, World of Darkness, TechNoir, (really, there's no RPG I won't try), a hand of Munchkin then and again, and I've just started trying to learn L5R.

What genres do you like? Steampunk? Sci-fi? Urban fantasy? A lovely mix of your favourites?

Steampunk, fantasy, horror, science-fiction, anything that will hold still long enough for me to read it.

Who are your favourite authors? Or, who makes your favourite games?

Octavia Butler, Mary Doria Russell, Cherie Priest, Peter Straub, Peter Giglio, Terry Pratchett (a new interest!), Karin Lowachee, Fritz Leiber, Tolkien, Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan, Alison Weir, John Keegan, David James Duncan, John Irving... the list could go on eternally.

What's a favourite book (or twelve)?

Parable of the Sower, Boneshaker (particularly the history bits), The Talisman, Shadowland, LOTR, Warbreaker, selected parts of Wheel of Time, The Sparrow/Children of God, the Warchild series, Ender's Game, Let the Right One In, Lives of the Twelve Caesars... I'm forgetting several.


Hey, I'm Gwen, history geek and all-around scribbler. I come from Tacoma so my appearances will be infrequent but I love to keep track of the awesome things at Otherworlds.
