Jim Munroe

Jim Munroe is a "pop culture provocateur" according to the Austin Chronicle. After leaving HarperCollins for political reasons, he published five books, the most recent one a post-Rapture graphic novel. As well as his collection of short videos about videogames, Pleasure Circuit Overload, he has written videogame journalism for Gamasutra.com, eye weekly, and theculturalgutter.com. Community projects he has founded include The Perpetual Motion Roadshow, an indie touring circuit that sent 100 artists on the road between 2003-2007, and currently he is running the Artsy Games Incubator, a writer's-circle style group
facilitating artists without programming skills to make videogames.
