A large portion of my writing output to date has come from the APAs
(Amateur Press Associations) that I have been a part of. Here are the
'zines that I currently 'publish':
- The Old Detective's Watering Hole: this is my longest
running 'zine to date. I produce it for Comicopia,
the comics APA that I created over 10 years ago. In fact, last month we celebrated our 11th anniversary. Quite a milestone!
I haven't missed an
issue; I have 67 'zines to my name here so far.
Among the material that I produce for Comicopia is a series of stories set
in Croft's Bar, otherwise known as The Old Detective's Watering Hole. My
stories are very much inspired by Spider Robinson's Callahan's series,
only my bar is a hangout for comic characters.
- Dreams: this is the roleplaying game 'zine
that I write for APACalypse, a currently 7-plus-year old gaming APA created in
I tend to write scenarios and design characters for whatever RPG I feel
suits the theme of the issue at hand. I've used Cyberpunk 220.127.116.11., HERO
system, Gurps and the FUDGE game engine. For the current issue, I'm delving into the Fuzion game engine.
