Hi,

According to my spreadhseet, he is credited for 3 games.
Volcano, Pantry Antics and Imogen.

Hope this helps
Mick.

http://everygamegoing.com/landing/autho ... Aubyn.html

Every Game Going has him down as the author of Acornsoft Volcano, as well as Pantry Antics, and a Spectrum title. Looks like he just gave up on games after that!

I was always curious about the mysterious Delos D. Harriman, who did Skirmish (and Bolo, unreleased) and that's it. Later found out from the STH website that his real name was Stuart Cheshire, which made me wonder why he hid behind a pseudonym. If I'd written something as fantastic as Skirmish as a teenager, I'd definitely want to shout about it!

Incidentally, Stuart Cheshire's CV includes the following:
Magazine Work. Have written for many computing magazines, including ‘Computer Fraud and Security’, ‘Beebug’, ‘A&B Computing’ and ‘The Micro User’, ‘Input’.

Would be interesting to see any of his articles, if anyone knows where they are.

Yep, Joust was eventually released as Skirmish. And Bolo was never released at all!
