Dorian Hart grew up in Narnia, Prydain, Middle Earth, etc. as much as he did in the Philly suburbs. He somehow leveraged a creative writing degree from Wesleyan U. into a 20-year career as a video game designer (Ultima Underworld 2, System Shock, Terra Nova, System Shock 2, Thief, Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich, BioShock, Card Hunter). He became a novelist and stay-at-home dad several years ago, and has written and self-published the first two books (The Ventifact Colossus and The Crosser's Maze) of an eventual five-book epic fantasy series. Dorian wrote the interactive SF adventure "Choice of the Star Captain" for Choice of Games. While he suspects he's far less witty and talented than the other members of the Hive, he would probably beat them all at ping-pong.
