"In Lovecraft's novel The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, Joseph Curwen is a necromancer who comes back to corporeal existence through his descendant Charles Dexter Ward."
Maybe the man himself can confirm if Lovecraft was the inspiration behind his online name?

My home country is… USA (Washington DC)
My age is… 32, which makes me just a tad younger than Trickster (Ed. - Rub it in why don't you!)
The first adventure game I played was… (tie) Winnie the Pooh and the Hundred Acre Wood (owned by the girl down the street) and King's Quest III (bought at a yard sale). I can't remember which came first. First game I finished was King's Quest IV ... thanks to massive help from the Sierra Hint Line, which I would love to hear about here.
Al Lowe's Winnie the Pooh game avoided my list, but certainly had an important role to play in the adventure genre
When I’m not playing games I like to… study for the bar exam, ugh. Running, biking, writing music, watching TV or movies, cooking, too many other things to write here. Renaissance man.
I like my games in (a box, digital format)… same as Trickster. I used to love the big old boxes, but lately I've been paring down my life, and selling off a lot of my excess stuff. Digital is lean, and appreciated.
My favorite adventure game is… Quest for Glory IV: Shadows of Darkness. Secret of Monkey Island and the Longest Journey are also very highly ranked by me as well.
Quest for Glory IV: I honestly don't recognise any of the screenshots for this game, yet I'm quite sure I played it
The best thing about modern games is… maturity. Back in the day, games like The Witcher just weren't really possible, and adult subjects were glossed over or ignored entirely. Very few "complex" moral choices were possible, a la the Mass Effect games. Etc.
The Witcher: Very high on the "games I would play if it wasn't for this blog" list!
The one TV show I never miss is… Mad Men.
If I could see any band live it would be… Who knows, these days.
My favourite movie is… Citizen Kane.
Classic films seems to be another common interest for lovers of adventure games.
One interesting thing about me is… I have an MFA in creative writing.
