Intfic / Interactive Fiction
Like many people my age, I first discovered text adventures on 8-bit home computers, in my case via The Hobbit (Melbourne House, 1983). That was in the early 1990s. In 2004 or so I discovered modern interactive fiction, and in 2006 I became active in the community. You can find out more about that part from my IFDB profile and my IFWiki page; as of 2016, I'm also on textadventures.co.uk.

Most of my interactive fiction articles are on No Time To Play, but a couple of them were just too specialized; one ended up on the Alan 3 website. The other... didn't. I figure mirroring both here can't hurt, obscure as they may be.
