Steve Damarell grew up (as much as any man grows up!) in the 70s on a diet of Star Trek, John Wyndham, and hiding behind the sofa whilst pretending to watch Doctor Who - until Star Wars came along, and blew his mind irreparably. Soon he was reading Dune and branching into the fantasy worlds of Tolkien via Eddings, as well as wasting lots of money playing Space Invaders. Forty years on and very little has changed. Along the way, he has been obsessed with many TV shows, books and videogames. He briefly flirted with freelance writing in the 90s, having articles and reviews published in magazines such as TV Zone. He may have an addictive personality, or he may just be a little bit mad. Possibly both.
