About David J Rodger
“Atmospheric and Creepy” – Alison Flood, The Guardian (UK)
I’m a British science fiction & fantasy author and game designer best known for my novels set in a near-future world of corporate and political intrigue. So far I have published seven novels; five that are set in the same universe: God Seed; Dante’s Fool; Iron Man Project, Edge, and Living in Flames, and one, Dog Eat Dog, set within the world of Yellow Dawn. Yellow Dawn – The Age of Hastur is a role-playing game set in the same future world as my novels, ten years after it has been devastated by a terrible mutagenic virus.
.In Yellow Dawn my interpretation of the Mythos, in particular the Great Old One Hastur, is a major part of the background material. I’ve published Shadows of the Quantinex, a large-scale campaign expansion for the Yellow Dawn game.
I’ve also written Cloudy Head, a children’s story illustrated by Kenn-Ole Moen, and finally the best way to lose friends and cause a fight at any dinner party, the riotous and deception-based murder mystery game, “Murder At Sharky Point”.
If you enjoy short stories then I’ve put together a collection of my favourite creations of the last 15 years in Songs of Spheres, including a brief intro about each tale.
Rodger’s novels often combine high-tech intrigue and political/corporate machinations with elements of the Cthulhu Mythos, as created by H.P. Lovecraft. Rodger’s contributions to the Mythos include the creation of a new Great Old One in his novel Edge, and the use of the Outer God Nyarlathotep in the novel God Seed.
I spent 8 years working for a non-departmental government agency, developing a virtual communications service within the IT Division, before moving into commercial project management for a UK media company. In 2000 my presence on the Internet scored me a place in the BBC documentary Through The Eyes of the Young, directed by Chris Terrill. Originally from Newcastle Upon Tyne, I now live in Bristol, England, with a Braun coffee-maker, writing from a house on a hill with a view of Earth’s curve.
