Story
Tagline
On MetaFilter I'm JHarris. I write about games and comics, draw sometimes, and I'm working on a computer game called In Profundis.
Introduction
I write the @Play column for GameSetWatch.  I also write, from time to time, Game Design Essentials columns for Gamasutra.

I also maintain a blog for going through the comic strip Peanuts.
Bragging rights
I wrote @Play for GameSetWatch, I wrote Game Design Essentials for Gamasutra, I'm working the computer game In Profundis, I'm more fitfully working on a shooter called Sisyphus, and made a game a couple years back called Mayflight. I'm working (fitfully) on a blog about the comic strip Peanuts called Roasted Peanuts, I post a lot on Metafilter, and I've done other things too, some of which don't immediately spring to mind. Oh, I helped edit Dr. Doug Thomson's academic edition of M.G. Lewis' _Tales of Wonder_.
