One novel and a raft of short stories to enjoy
Always nice when you discover talent whilst roaming around the interweb saying “hello – want to buy my books!!!” to people. Here’s Mike Jansen, a prolific author of short stories from a place just outside Amsterdam. With roots deeply entwined in early years of role-playing games, his fiction is quick and easy to get into.
Here is a link to his first novel – The Failing God

Mike had fun running D&D style scenarios in Shadowrun and the World of Darkness. And once ran a 2 year campaign for Vampire set in New York for 9 tabletop players, but with almost all communication going via newyork.com email accounts.

A creative mind set for mischief.
He’s expressed an interest in writing some shorts set in the post-apocalyptic world of Yellow Dawn. I think with his fusion of writing skills and experience with RPGs he’ll do a great job – something to look forward to. Watch this space for updates. You can also find Mike on Facebook.
