More About the Author

CB Harvey is Narrative Designer with Rebellion Developments - take a look at to see what we do - and a writer of fiction and non-fiction working across different media. Harvey has previously written numerous video game narrative design documents for Sony and is the author of 'Dead Kelly', a novella set in the Afterblight shared storyworld and collected in 'Journal of the Plague Year' (Abaddon Books 2014). Harvey's other published fiction includes 'Sinbad and the Warriors of Forever' (Airship 27 2014), licensed Doctor Who and Highlander material for Big Finish and comic stories for 2000AD and Commando.

His short fiction won the first 'Pulp Idol' award, jointly conferred by SFX Magazine and Gollancz, and he's undertaken narrative design work on Mongoose Games' licensed Judge Dredd miniatures game. His forthcoming work includes short fiction for the US pulp publishers Airship 27 and Moonstone Books. Most of his fiction is written as 'CB Harvey' while on the whole his non-fiction appears under the name 'Colin B Harvey'.

Harvey is the author of 'Fantastic Transmedia' (Palgrave 2015), which explores transmedia storytelling in relation to large-scale science fiction and fantasy franchises like Star Wars, Halo and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as looking at various smaller-scale indie transmedia projects. His other academic publications include an Italian book about Grand Theft Auto and articles about transmedia storytelling, Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who and Neil Gaiman.

Harvey's journalism has appeared in The Guardian, Edge, RetroGamer, ScriptWriter, PopMatters, Strange Horizons and the on-line version of Starburst. He's taught creative writing, transmedia storytelling, game narrative and related subjects at a variety of universities including King's College, London, the University of Western Sydney, Bournemouth University and London South Bank University.

Product Description


"Storyworlds across Media fruitfully explores an important new concept in narrative theory - the storyworld - that is of compelling interest across disciplines, from TV writing and popular culture through to digital media design, and artificial intelligence." - Janet H. Murray, author of Hamlet on the Holodeck: The Future of Narrative in Cyberspace "Storyworlds across Media offers a great deal of insight into the contemporary cultural use of proliferating opportunities (especially in digital media) for innovation in storytelling." - Richard Walsh, author of Novel Arguments: Reading Innovative American Fiction
