Welcome to the Personal Space of Mat Lindsay

"Send back Earth's gods to their haunts on unknown Kadath, and pray to all space that you may never meet me in my thousand other forms. Farewell, Randolph Carter, and beware; for I am Nylarthotep, the crawling chaos."

HP Lovecraft "Through the gates of the Silver Key"

Don't let the quote put you off, I'm a nice guy really...no really.

As you might gather from that I'm a definite admirer of Lovecraft and his tales of the things that mankind was not mean't to know. In fact literature of all kinds could be said to be my most central passion in life. I adore the following writers: HG Wells, Stephen Dobyns, Edgar Allen Poe, Poppy Z Brite, David Gemmell, Graham Masterton, JRR Tolkien, Robert Jordan, Anne Rice, Robert Harris, Katherine Kerr, Fyodor Dostoyevsky and of course the great Lovecraft himself.

I also happen to be a long time fan of pro-wrestling and champion in particular: Kanyon, Rey Mysterio Junior, Eddie Gurrero, Roddy Piper, Ultimo Dragon, Keiji Muto and the incomperable Raven.

After the love of my life (i.e. my partner) my life revolves around movies (Seven Samurai, The Lord of the Rings, Brotherhood of the Wolf, Highlander, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, etc) and music (Pearl Jam, Weezer, Jimmy Eat World, Rival Schools, Hundred Reasons, Korn, Deftones, Taproot, System of a Down, Stone Temple Pilots, Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, NOFX, The Descendants, Live, Faith No More, Hell is for Heroes, Audioslave, etc).

I have also been roleplaying for the best part of the last fifteen years using such systems as D&D (2nd & 3rd Ed), WHFRP, World of Darkness and Call of Cthulu both as a GM and player.

As for myself, what is there to say? I'm a twenty-something guy from the friendly north of England who graduated from uni with a degree in english and now tries to hold down a responsible day job whilst writing in his spare time and trying in vein to keep up with all his own interests.

And I now have a three-legged cat called Jester...life is stranger than fiction.
