Steve Ogden has been a professional artist, animator, and writer for almost 40 years. He’s worked for a variety of game companies, including Cyan (maker of the 1990s hits
Riven) and currently works for Sid Meier’s Firaxis (
X-COM) just north of Baltimore. He is the creator of several comics:
Croaker’s Gorge; the award-winning graphic novel
Moon Town; his most recent,
Madigan’s Guide to Acting Human; and
Magnificatz, which is syndicated through Universal/Andrews & McMeel.
He also wrote
Headstones and Monuments, which he terms “a slightly bone-chilling collection of short stories”—tales from a haunted childhood—based on his experiences growing up in a haunted 200-year-old house in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
