Paul Kidd is a highly respected and incredibly prolific creator of intellectual properties across a vast range of media. Few people have his breadth of experience in creation for so many formats – computer games, film, TV, novels, manga, comics, animation direction, voice acting… His novels are fan favourites, and his games have won multiple awards. Paul is renowned as both a comedy writer, and as a writer of adventure fiction. His material has included cartoon series, political thrillers, and even music. His scripting career has included work for such people as Eric Idle, Tony Robinson and Jon Pertwee. Amongst his odd little qualifications are a passion for history, and many years spent perfecting strange and colourful skills such as Japanese swordsmanship. ---------------------- Paul Kidd - Professional Credits Current March 2014 Novels: Publisher White Plume Mountain (Greyhawk) TSR Books, Sept 1999 Devir (Spanish lang.) 2005 ISA (Polish lang.) 2005 Descent into the Depths of the Earth TSR Books 2000 Devir (Spanish lang.) 2005 ISA (Polish lang.) 2005 Queen of the Demonweb Pits TSR Books 2001 Devir (Spanish lang.) 2005 ISA (Polish lang.) 2005 Mus of Kerbridge TSR Books 1995 Mus of Kerbridge Heynan Bucher (German lang.) 1998 Mus of Kerbridge Kitsune Press 2007 The Council of Blades (Forgotten Realms) TSR Books 1997 A Whisper of Wings Vision books, Nov 1999 Rats of Acomar Vision books, Jan 2000 The Fangs of K'aath United Publications UK. 2000 The Fangs of K’aath 2: Guardians of Light United Publications UK 2005 Fey Pure Hubris 2003 United Publications UK 2005 Dreamscape Kitsune Press 2007 Lilith Kitsune Press 2007 Neue Europa Kitsune Press 2007 Petal Storm Kitsune Press 2007 Red Sails in the Fallout Wizards of the Coast 2011 Effectuators, Bk 1: “Creatures of the Night” Kitsune Press 2012 Effectuators, Bk 2: “Green and Pleasant Land” Kitsune Press 2012 Effectuators, Bk 3: “To Foreign Shores” Kitsune Press 2013 Effectuators, Bk 4: “Sweet Albion” Kitsune Press 2014 Kindle novels from Amazon.com Mus of Kerbridge Petal Storm A Whisper of Wings Fangs of K’aath 1 Fangs of K’aath 2 Fey Lilith Mission Tiamat Treescape Dreamscape The Halls of Orpheus Mus of Kerbridge Petal Storm A Whisper of Wings Fangs of K’aath 1 Fangs of K’aath 2 Fey Lilith Mission Tiamat Treescape Dreamscape The Halls of Orpheus GammaWorld: Red Sails in the Fallout Travellers, Book 1: “The Epsilon Queen” Travellers, Book 2: “The Ryakan Legacy” Travellers, Book 3: “The Kimtoa Bequest” Effectuators, Book 1: “Creatures of the Night” Effectuators, Book 2: “Green and Pleasant Land” Effectuators, Bk 3: “To Foreign Shores” Effectuators, Bk 4: “Sweet Albion” TV Screenplays: Ginger Meggs (animated series) ICA Australia 1 episode scripted Joe’s World (animated comedy series) CTA TV TV Singapore Multi-media voice actor scripts: Discworld CD ROM game (Eric Idle) Psygnosis 1995 USA & European #1, 1995 Discworld 2 CD ROM game (Eric Idle) Psygnosis 1996 USA & European #1 1996 Heroes Over Europe Atari 2008 The Beast goes Fishing Tentacle Entity 2009 Non fiction books: How to play "Lord of the Rings" Melbourne House 1987 Discworld 2, Players Guide Corgi 1996 With Terry Pratchett Short Stories: Sandhri’s Tales MU Press, “Southlands” Magazine The Frogs and the Waterhole Radio Press “Hunka Munka” Magazine Dream souls Triconderoga Press, 2000, “Short Stories for Short Attention spans” By the Job TSR 2001, “Dragon” Stone Soup Blues TSR 2002, “Dragon” Web comics: Spooky and Tinkle Pure Hubris 2005- 2007 Comicbooks/Manga: Princess Karinam MU Press 1993 Tank Vixens #1 Antarctic Press 1995 Tank Vixens #2 Antarctic Press 1995 Tank Vixens #3 Antarctic Press 1996 Tank Vixens #4 Antarctic Press 1996 Fangs of K'aath #1 MU Press 1997 Fangs of K'aath #2 MU Press 1997 Fangs of K'aath #3 MU Press 1998 Fangs of K'aath #4 MU Press 1998 Fangs of K'aath #5 MU Press 1998 Fangs of K'aath #6 MU Press 1998 Cyberkitties #1 MU Press 1998 Cyberkitties #2 MU Press 1998 Cyberkitties #3 MU Press 1998 Hot Buttered Mice MU Press 2003 Tank Vixens – Divine collection United Publications 2002 “Collected Edition” Spooky and Tinkle Collection Hartlight 2012 Plus numerous short stories in bi-monthly anthology titles published by Antarctic Press, Radio Comics, M.U.
