About

Hiya! My name is W.M. Akers, and I write all sorts of cool stuff, such as:

  • Mystery novels like Westside, which the New York Times named one of the most notable books of 2019
  • Tabletop games like the bestselling baseball sim Deadball, the space-based survival thriller Lost Ship, and the roleplaying game Comrades
  • Plays like the teenybopper murderfarce Pop Dies In Vegas and the cannibalism comedy of manners Dead Man's Dinner

The video above is fiendishly out of date. The manuscript I hold up has since been published; there have been three other Deadball books released, and the baby in it is now a full blown kid. I'm leaving it up because I like seeing Dash the Flash as a wee little boy.

If you like Deadball, or RPGs, or theater, or mystery novels, or groceries, or babies, consider pledging a few dollars a month to help keep me in business. As thanks, I'll publish regular (at least twice a month) updates about what I'm working on, sharing previews of my work and free PDFs of all my new games. You'll also get all the free stuff tagged here.

Check out my portfolio if you’d like to learn more about my work, and thank you, thank you, thank you kindly for supporting what I do!
