The untold unfolds

James T Kelly tells you the stories no-one else will.

He writes fantasy novels filled with magic, adventure, and dragons. Brian Sibley also called them “powerful”. Not to brag or anything.

He’s also written a series of books about Branwell Brontë. You’ll discover the tragic tale of a misunderstood and wasted talent, as well as seeing for yourself the work that would have secured his legacy if not for his own undoing. If you thought Branwell was just the drunken, footnote of a brother to the Brontë sister, think again: The truth about Branwell Brontë may surprise you.

His latest venture saw him tracking down and conducting exclusive interviews with the game designers behind the games based on Frank Herbert’s Dune. Unable to find the stories himself, he wrote a fascinating making-of story for each of these games filled with tales. Calling the Makers was a labour of love that reveals exactly how games based on a big franchise get made and the challenges they face.

In short, James tells stories. Maybe you’d like one of them?
