About the Author

Dave Morris is a writer and games developer whose works have been published in more than a dozen languages. He is a physicist who has also spent a year as the UK's bestselling fiction writer, and a videogame designer whose literary work has been awarded a Kirkus star. He was a mentor in the American Film Institute's Digital Content Lab, reflecting his interest in the boundary between storytelling and games, an interest that led him to the "EQ interactivity" of his reworking of Frankenstein and that now has him working on a follow-up that will peel a raw patch off readers' perceptions of their own moral code. His other interactive works include the Critical IF adventure gamebooks, and he is the co-creator and author of the graphic novel epic Mirabilis: Year of Wonders.
