Sean Stewart is not a reality TV star… he is a U.S.-Canadian science fiction and fantasy author. Originally from Texas, he moved to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 1968, and now resides in Davis. He received an Honors degree in English from University of Alberta in 1987, following which he spent many years writing novels. Among them are Mockingbird, Resurrection Man, The Perfect Circle, Cloud’s End, and Galveston (winner of the World Fantasy Award and the Sunburst Award for best novel in 2000). He gradually moved from writing novels to interactive fiction, first as lead writer on the Web based Alternate Reality Game The Beast. Sean served as a consultant on several computer games, and was on the management team of the 4orty2wo Entertainment experiential marketing and entertainment company, where he was lead writer for Haunted Apiary aka ilovebees and Last Call Poker. His newest novel Cathy’s Book, and its sequel, Cathy’s Key, seem to represent the melding of his two careers, as they cross the alternate reality game format with a teen novel. In 2007, he and several 4orty2wo co-founders left that company to start Fourth Wall Studios. One of our favorite writers, we are delighted that he made time to come be part of SF in SF and get us hooked on ARGs.
