I'm a retired educational technician, andauthor and publisher of the Forgotten Futures role playing game on line and on CD-ROM (it was also briefly in print but the publisher pulled the plug on it), of the Diana: Warrior Princess RPG, available in print from Heliograph Inc. or as a PDF from e23 (Steve Jackson Games) and The Original Flatland Role Playing Game (also from e23 and sold in aid of Doctors Without Borders). I write fan-fiction when I'm feeling blocked with games writing, or an interesting idea comes up.

Stories

...A Little Help From My Friends by Marcus Rowland [Reviews - 0]
When a sudden resurgence of Thuggee threatens Britain's most beloved sons, the Beatles, the Queen calls in someone with a history of handling unconventional problems - Captain Jack Harkness. Fortunately he has some help in the form of archaologist Carol Lake (who might possibly be better known under a slightly different name), and his usual indestructibility. It might even be enough to keep the Beatles alive... This is a VERY wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey crossover between Doctor Who, Torchwood, and the film Help! (1965). Fasten your seat-belt, it's going to be a bumpy ride...
