New York Times bestselling author, pioneer computer game designer and teenage freedom fighter. That was back in 1974 when Chris was tasked with publicising Plymouth’s Student Rag Week. Some people might have arranged an interview with the local newspaper. Chris invaded the country next door, created the Free Cornish Army and persuaded the UK media that Cornwall had risen up and declared independence. This was later written up in Punch. As he told journalists at the time, ‘it was only a small country and I did give it back.’

In 1981, he created Randomberry Games and wrote Necromancer, one of the first 3D first person perspective D&D computer games. Not to mention writing the most aggressive chess program ever seen and inventing the most dang

We've moved to the north west of France now as it was too hot in the South. We fancied the idea of restoring an old farmhouse - not having done any DIY before, but watching a lot of DIY house restoration programs. How hard could it be?

So, we bought three dilapidated stone cottages, a ruin and a dolmen in ten acres of rolling granite pasture and cider orchards. We re-built and restored
the main house ourselves and now run a smallholding there. In between the writing that is:)(less)

“... the Possession Diet. It's fast. It works. It introduces you to new, healthier foods. And it's almost never fatal.”
Chris Dolley, How Possession Can Help You Lose Weight

“Spirits have cravings--they're only human (well, some of them are)--but the amazing thing about these cravings is that they are SLIMMING POSITIVE! That's right, spirits don't crave sugary foods, or fat, or chocolate, or deep-fried carbs. They crave HEALTHY food like raw liver and bugs and those tiny dried-up foods you find in old attics and the better-stocked graveyards.”
Chris Dolley, How Possession Can Help You Lose Weight

“Clinical trials have proven that projectile vomiting is up to FOUR times more efficient than ordinary vomiting. You don't even have to run to the bathroom! With practice, and careful placement of your chair within thirty feet--and line of sight--of your bathroom, you can project your lunch from the comfort of your armchair.”
