An open call for Jacek Pudlo


Hello! I recently have been collecting information on the history of the interactive fiction community for a book I plan on publishing.

I have been in contact with members of the Santoonie Corporation regarding their past, and am looking to interview other colorful characters from the past.

I’d be interesting in talking to you from an academic perspective about what kept you in and out of various communities for almost two decades, how you settled on your online persona, if there’s any changes you made over the years, more details on your feuds with IF authors, regrets you may have, details about Gamlet, and, if possible, information about you as a real-life person.

I don’t think much research has been done on well-known internet trolls, and I certainly don’t think there are that many that have shadowed a community faithfully for over two decades. Let me know if you’re interested.
