Ian Clark was born in 1973 and grew up in central Maine. An only child, he began reading comic books at age 4 with the Star Wars adaptation, Spider-Man and Batman and he hasn’t stopped collecting since. His love for reading carried over into classic science fiction and the works of Stephen King. Ian’s passion for movies also began at a young age, sparked by Star Wars and fed by geek classics such as Logan’s Run, Blade Runner and The Road Warrior. Ian’s interest in board and miniatures gaming began in the mid 90s when he first played Necromunda and Talisman. He is also classically trained in video games, having owned Atari 2600, Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis, Playstation, Sega Dreamcast and Xbox consoles.
Ian has a Bachelor of Science degree in English/Journalism from Tennessee Technological University (class of 1997) and was a National Medal of Merit winner for journalism in college. He currently works as a writer with New Hampshire’s largest newspaper. Ian is primarily a sports reporter (where he has covered three Super Bowls, the Stanley Cup Finals and numerous other national events), but has also written a weekly pop culture column and occassional arts and entertainment pieces. He has written two fantasy novels, entitled Prophecy of Shadows and Plains of the past. Ian is also a goalie in men’s recreational league ice hockey and a stand-up comedian.
Ian has been married since 1997. He and his wife Amy live in central New Hampshire with their two sons.
