Gaming for Grown Ups

Peter McCaughan

Hallo, my name is Peter (sometimes Hotrod) McCaughan. I'm an arts journalist, occasional comic and fulltime nerd based in Belfast.

Having begun my gaming odyssey with the family ZX Spectrum I was hooked young and never looked back.

I can often be found lurking in the local comic shop and have a penchant for William Gibson books, Herschell Gordon Lewis flicks, good roast dinners and dark frothy ales.
