Stew Wilson likes writing about himself in the third person, but only in colophons. Anywhere else would be strange. He’s a freelance writer. Mostly, he writes roleplaying games. A whole bunch of those have been published by White Wolf Game Studios and Onyx Path Publishing in their World of Darkness lines. He’s also published his own RPGs: Æternal Legends, in partnership with Mob United Media, and the self-published BLACK SEVEN and Beyond. People keep hiring him to write them, so he must be doing something right. He also writes fiction and factual essays and has dabbled in writing comics, both traditional writer-artist pairings and “open-source” endeavours.

An adopted Scotsman, Stew was born in Hull in the East Riding of Yorkshire. He spent the first eighteen years of his life trying to escape, and has got as far as Edinburgh. His route took him via Stafford, Munich, and a worrying hour-and-a-half in Slough. Along the way he picked up a degree in computer science and mathematics, focusing on cognitive science and cryptography. He also ran the UNIX network of a large German company even though he doesn’t speak much German, held a job as a software tester despite not giving a shit about software testing, and worked as a banker despite being a socialist.
Stew’s enjoys life in Edinburgh, where he lives with his wife, their cat, and almost enough computers (because enough is impossible). His day job is as a systems administrator, running a Windows network that interfaces with Linux and OSX on a number of levels. His role encompasses application packaging, equipment purchasing, software development, and general Windows troubleshooting. He’s the first to admit that he’s a passable web programmer with an eye for usability, but doesn’t have the first clue about design.
His social media presence includes Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google, along with good old email. He’s probably the last carbon-based entity on Earth to not have a Facebook account, a fact that he’s occasionally smug about.
Stew Wilson is a writer, game designer, computational demonologist, and mathematician.
This blog covers his professional writing and game design work.
