About This Site

A gardener nurtures plants, and the plants grow tall and robust. This website is my garden, where I nurture projects over time. Here, in long articles and short updates, I have published translations, poems, and videogames; rallied my friends to create art; and promoted books and projects/people.

About Me

Ha, ha, and ha again. What could you possibly want to know that you can’t puzzle out by reading the home page?

A biography, you say? A description of myself? Very well.


I am a linguist, comedian, writer, programmer, poet, Dungeon Master, translator, game designer, researcher, and daydreamer. I am not Max Joslyn the illustrator and Twitter user, Max R. Joslyn the camera operator, Max R. Joslyn the documentary filmmaker and Flickr user, Max Joslyn the Pinterest user, or Joslyn Maxwell the author.

You can contact me by email at . The confident are also invited to try an alternate method of contact:

  1. Write what you wish to say on a piece of paper.
  2. Stare hard at the piece of paper.
  3. Await my telepathic response.

My SEO expert has advised me to blither at length until this website gets tired of me, packs its bags, and leaves – at which point I can shoot it in the back.
