Jason A. Holt
MisCon 30 Panel Volunteer
Jason graduated from Big Sky High School and somehow ended up in the
Czech Republic, where he learned enough Czech to work for a computer
When he returned to Montana, he was able to get a job translating
board games, thanks to the miracle of the internet. He has worked on
every game ever published by Czech Games Edition, including Galaxy
Trucker, Space Alert, and Dungeon Lords. When he's not translating, he
writes the Edgewhen series of fantasy adventure novels.
