Matt Johnston wrote and published The 23rd Letter, SpaceninjaCyberCrisis and ZOMBI all prior to 2001. Previous to that he was a prolific gamer at Dragonslayers in Belfast and in ’92 was responsible for creating what would become “Q-CON” by writing the constitution of the club to include the role of convention director. He then organised, agitated, charmed and bullied people into making there be a Q-CON 1…then 2….then 3. Twenty years later it’s still running.

He’s worked in technology, in economic development, in a couple of startups, as a teacher, as a film director and now he barely works at all.

These days he writes, sails yachts and spends too much time thinking about the past and future and never the present.
