News: British novelist will try his hand at a story about demons from Hell invading Earth.
British fantasy/sci-fi novelist Graham Joyce has revealed via his website that he'll be contributing part of the storyline to Doom 4:
I'll also be working on the computer game Doom 4 for ID Software. I've been playing Doom for some years. Okay, here's a secret: I don't actually tickle the keyboards into simulating lines of deathless prose for the full eight hours per day. No. The creative batteries do run low at moments, it has to be said, and to recharge them I might walk the dog; pluck the lute from the wall (okay, guitar); read lines of the Sufi mystic Rumi; or I might casually mangle a few demons in Doom.
Joyce's most recent book is the Young Adult novel The Exchange. He has won the British Fantasy Award four times (for his novels Dark Sister, Requiem, The Tooth Fairy and Indigo) and the World Fantasy Award once (for The Facts of Life).
