“Dynamic Storytelling” at the London Book Fair

I did a talk this week at the London Book Fair about Dynamic Storytelling.



Homeric epithets, Beowulf, Mummers Plays, Pantomime, the advent of mass media, D&D, text adventures, Bioware’s RPG’s, Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, non-linear branching hierarchy’s, Benedict Cumberbatch photo bombing himself, Turing Tests, postulating a virtual Homer and Pop-Up Tales!

Lots of fun and there were more people at the end of the talk than there were at the beginning, which was unexpected 😉

Even got Tweeted about by the London Book Fair!




Holiday Drawings

I had some “end of the financial year” enforced holiday at the end of last month. Here’s a couple of things I did. I was trying to refine the block-y style of photoshop painting I’ve lapsed into in the last year or so. Decidedly mixed results but you should see the one’s I haven’t posted.
