The Author

Shedrick Pittman-Hassett

I am a professional librarian and part-time writer trying to do that the other way around.

I have had articles published in professional library journals such as Library Mosaics, Public Librariesand The Journal of Access Services.

I have reviewed books for both Library Journal and Shroud Magazine Book Reviews Online and produce my own reviews at my other site, Serial Distractions.

I am officially a third-rate fiction writer, having won third prize in three different short-story contests. My fiction is, as of yet, unpublished.

I have had two articles published in the award-wining Knights of the Dinner Table magazine.

I have had two game aids published by Nevermet Press (Encounter: Prox Peak and The Restorationists).

I have been a player and game master of table-top role-playing games for nearly 25 years, having run campaigns in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (1e & 2e), Star FrontiersVampire the Masquerade, Ars Magica, Rune Quest, Mystic Rune (unpublished), DC Heroes Serenity RPG, Dresden Files RPG, Pathfinder, Deadlands Classic, and other fine games.

I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats.  When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.

But wait, there’s more…
