Allston, Aaron

Tagged: Author

(1960-2014) US author and Role Playing Game designer who published many nonfiction pieces in this area, was editor of Space Gamer magazine 1982-1983, and co-designed the games Justice, Inc (1984) and The Savage Empire (1990) (see Worlds of Ultima). Several though not all of his novels are tied to the Star Wars universe [see Checklist below]; his first novel, Web of Danger (1988 dos), ties sf tropes into an espionage thriller frame; other tales of interest include Double Jeopardy (1994), an sf adventure in the Car Warriors sequence by various authors, Galatea in 2-D (1993), a Painting-into-Life fantasy, and the Sidhe sequence – Doc Sidhe (1995) and Sidhe-Devil (2001) – which conflates sf and fantasy.
