Video episode 170 - Special Guest Glen Dahlgren!

Watch Now:

Glen Dahlgren is the author of the upcoming young-adult fantasy novel, the Child of Chaos–a passion project that is the culmination of Glen’s lifelong love of fantasy and years of experience releasing compelling characters into fascinating worlds and describing what happens. His debut title is scheduled to be published in 2020.

 

Wearing slightly different hats, Glen has written, designed, directed, and produced award-winning, narrative-driven computer games for the last three decades. What’s more, he had the honor of creating original fantasy and science-fiction storylines that took established, world-class literary properties into interactive experiences. He collaborated with celebrated authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman (The Death Gate Cycle), Robert Jordan (The Wheel of Time – soon to be a TV series from Amazon), Frederik Pohl (Heechee saga), Terry Brooks (Shannara), and Piers Anthony (Xanth) to bring their creations to the small screens. In addition, he crafted licensor-approved fiction for the Star Trek franchise as well as Stan Sakai’s epic graphic novel series, Usagi Yojimbo.
