He has worked on a number of games, among them Aliens Versus Predator (1999), Taito Legends (2005 Empire Interactive, PS2, Win, XBox) – a collection which transposed various older works to newer machines, including several variants of Space Invaders – and the fantastical Adventure / God Game hybrid Ghost Master (2003 Sick Puppies, Mac, Win) designed by Gregg Barnett, Chris Bateman. In print, he was an editor of the Bloomsbury Good Reading Guide to Science Fiction and Fantasy (1989) (see M H Zool) and a contributor to the second edition of this encyclopedia; he wrote the numerous Games entries for the third edition. Edited, expanded and revised for book publication, a selection from these entries that deal with tabletop gaming franchises has appeared as Science Fiction Hobby Games: A First Survey (2013); a similarly based volume dealing with Videogames is Science Fiction Video Games (2014).
