Austin Grossman is stopping in for the next week or so to be a guest blogger for io9. An accomplished game developer, Austin took a hiatus to pursue his Ph.D. in English at UC Berkeley and last year published a hit novel about neurotic superheroes (and villains) called Soon I Will Be Invincible. I interviewed Austin last year about video game writing and novel writing for Wired. He'll start his guest editing gig by posting his thoughts on the recent Game Developer Conference, and then he's promised to write about a few other geeky topics โ€” including the secret history of early scifi role-playing game Gamma World!
