Flint Dille wrote your childhood. From his work on 80s cartoon classics like Transformers, G.I. Joe, the Garbage Pail Kids, and Inhumanoids to the interactive novels he wrote with Gary Gygax, creator of Dungeons & Dragons, Flint had a hand in many pockets of 80s popular culture.
He's worked with Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Frank Miller, Jack Kirby, and a raft of others as a writer, story editor, show runner, and/or producer of iconic entertainment in almost every medium.
The Gamesmaster is Dille's memoir looking through his own unique story, his blend of pop culture, social history, and reportage about the groundbreaking 1980s, and the parts he and his colleagues, collaborators, employers, and friends played in making it a genuine Golden Age.
