About
I'm Nathan Hardisty, an author, ex-editorial writer for Platformnation.com, ex-games writer at Screenjabber. I now write for a variety of sites on the internet while still updating both my DTOID blog and my regular blog, which can be found below.

I am currently writing for Flixist.com

Also I'm incredibly pretentious about video-games so beware. I might just hipsterblow your minds.

Trimalchio is a tragicomedy, which is neither tragic nor omedy, about a young playwright drafted in to adapt The Great Gatsby. While dodging visions of a mysterious past he finds himself slowly sinking into the mind of F Scott Fitzgerald.

Iíve been working on Trimalchio, the idea, for more than two years. Iíve been writing and editing for the last year. In the last two weeks Iíve gone through about five drafts? Maybe more? What you should know, however, is I am probably one of the worst proofreaders in existence. Some folks helped craft this thing, with special thanks to Laurens Steel (who designed the cover art too), but itís otherwise my first solo venture. Iíve written two novels before this bit theyíre both either too boring or too good (note: good means awful) to go public.

If youíre wondering about a lot of the stuff that happens in the ruddy thing, and what itís primarily based on, then do read Dear Scott, Dearest Zelda (a compilation of the love letters that the [eventual] Fitzgeralds sent to each other). That and, well, The Great Gatsby if you havenít already. Wait, you havenít? Oh my! Shame on you!

Trimalchio is available for FREE online:

If you have any thoughts on it then feel free to tweet me them @Nathardisty or email me nathan.hardisty@gmail.com or owl mail or whatever. If thereís any errors then do tell me them or, and I encourage this, attach them to a brick and throw it at my face.

Cheers,

Nathan.
