Steve Jackson was born in Manchester, in 1951, but his family moved to Canada when he was four years old. However, they returned to the UK when he was 11 and he joined Altrincham Grammar School for Boys. And it was here that he met fellow pupil Ian Livingstone.
In the years since then he not only co-founded Games Workshop and co-created the legendary Fighting Fantasy gamebook series, he was also one of the co-founders of Lionhead Studios, and went on to become Professor of Games Design at Brunel University.
Happy Birthday, Steve, and may your STAMINA never fail!
