Location Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Introduction Dylan Matthias grew up in small-town Nova Scotia writing stories about drifts, dystopias, and dragons.

Inspired by Douglas Adams, Brian Jacques and Guy Kay, Dylan enjoys mythopoeia, crafting worlds in space and time. For nearly eight years, he's been mucking about with game narrative because while fiction makes words beautiful, games make them into worlds we can inhabit.

He studied journalism, English, and creative writing for five years at the University of King's College, from which he graduated in 2012 and is now deadly busy at the Centre for Digital Media where he does a lot of writing and producing. He will rejoin society in September 2014.

Dylan worked at The Dalhousie Gazette, North America's oldest campus paper, for four years, including one as its editor-in-chief. He's also or appeared on Haligonia.ca, UNews.ca, The CIS Blog, and SSN Canada. His first short story, The Wonderer, was published in April 2012 in Fathom: Dalhousie's Creative Writing Journal.

Dylan is a chronic user of the serial comma, bad sub-titles, and the awkwardly-placed parenthetical. He also thinks kennings are cool.
