Yay! Announcements on game development, and writing progress.
Seems like a good day to announce that I have decided to “resurrect” my game company.
My plan going forward is to return to the early days where I worked on the kinds of games I like to build, and play. The first ones will be simple fun titles while I build up my skill set to current standards. As I get more time (and perhaps hire more talent) I’ll expand to doing more complex titles. I have licenses to several game engines. So, I can pick and choose which engine will get me get the game I’m interested in making with the least amount of additional effort.
Expect to see a new website for the Pariah Games in the coming weeks. The old one served me well when I was promoting the work of budding high school students, but I think a face lift is in order going forward.
On the writing front I am happy to announce that after about 40 years I have returned to the ranks of the published authors.
Interestingly, the first thing that got to print this time was a poem, written under my own name. I write fiction under the name David Nash to make it easier to find on the bookshelves. I write non-fiction under my own name because you are generally looking for the information and not the author.
Anyway, although two short fiction pieces were accepted before the poem, it got to print first. The fiction pieces should be coming out soon and I’ll plug them when they are published.
The book, which contains poetry, stories, and reflections is called “Valley of Ice” and is published by Collins Press. It is available in paper and electronic forms.

Finally, I have gotten back enough feedback from my initial readers that I can begin the final edits on the sci-fi novel. With a little effort it should be ready sometime in May. I’ll let people know a bit more about it as the time draws near.
I got a lot of useful feedback, some great suggestions, and a couple of requests to start on the sequel right away.
I have a couple other writing projects in front of it, but I do have a sequel in mind. We’ll have to see how the public likes the first one.
That’s it for now. Hope you all have a happy, quiet and pleasant holiday.
