About Alex (Updated)

Alex Masterson spends a lot of his time navigating the kinds of shifting mental pathways and imaginary worlds that are generally found in two kinds of people; writers or lunatics. Over the course of the last few years, he has somehow managed to write 120,000 words that all seem to have some relevance to each other, so he should probably refer to them collectively as a novel, and check himself out of the asylum. The novel is called ‘Nocturn’, and is currently lingering in a purgatory of editing and re-writes.

He has a degree in French, plays a Richie Sambora signature Stratocaster, (the tremolo lock of which is now fixed, to the presumed dismay of the neighbours…), a Marlin acoustic, and every now and then spends a few seconds staring (musically) at his bass guitar. He is also well aware that this ‘About’ section is now horrendously out of date, and will be getting off his lazy arse to update it accordingly in the near future.

Music is one of life’s greatest joys, be it listening or playing. Blues, prog, classical, rock, metal, ambient, funk and soul rarely dissapoint.

Computer games are another big passion, seeing the industry develop over the years from a stereotyped ‘brainless medium’ into an increasingly diverse and engaging way of telling stories is brilliant to behold. Games like Planescape: Torment, Dreamfall and Psychonauts; engaging, different, morally challenging, and masterfully crafted storytelling. Awesome.

Anything you want to know, just ask. Otherwise, I hope if you’ve stumbled across this blog that you find something that’s worth your time, and cheers for stopping by!

    Was that picture taken in Chicago by any chance?

      It was! Millennium Park to be exact – there are a load of ace modern sculptures there; that reflective thing’s a massive kidney bean shaped metal mirror and walking underneath it causes some… interesting optical illusions!
