Bewildering Stories biography

I grew up in the second generation of the San Francisco counterculture, watching the home of hippies and weirdos turn into the heart of Silicon Valley, giving birth to a new world, run through technology.

In a lifetime of searching for the middle ground of weirdo technologists, I try to see most issues from both sides, like the novel I wrote with both human and zombie protagonists.

I took a web design class once, in 1996, where I wrote a story using the relatively new tool of “hyperlinks.” Since then, the scale of my experiments in format and engagement have grown into things like the interlinked diary of technological isolation called Read If They Get Me.

Now I’m trying to make my storytelling even more interactive by bringing a deeper narrative to browser-based games. See the latest at
