Hi, I'm Glen Spoors and I trade under the business name Lost Isle Media. 


I’m a Perth-born cross-media artist and former academic. I've taught media, cultural studies and game design across Edith Cowan, Curtin and UWA since 2000, and currently teach game design at SAE Perth. I received my PhD in 2004 on emotion in games but soon afterwards pivoted back towards my creative passions, although I've continued to supervise postgraduate students. 

I periodically shift gears between writing, music, art and gaming, and tend to treat them as separate, so rather than put all my work under one label I gave each its own brand: 

  • CORADEL PRESS (writing): I wrote fantasy from late primary school on, but my most productive period was in my early 20s and early 30s. My early fantasy was Tolkein-inspired fantasy, but it evolved into my own hybrid of low fantasy, fantasy horror, literary fantasy and philosophically-informed urban surrealism. I would recommend Rapanoikhi and Other Stories as my most accessible writing.

  • CHEEKY MONSTER GAMES (board and digital games): When I was an early teen I designed computer games and role-playing games, but left that hobby for about fifteen years. In my mid-30s I found a renewed interest in boardgames, roleplaying games and indie computer games, which led me to design Pocket Troll, Colossus Awakes and several other games, and notably my 2-volume RPG Io: Supernatural Fantasy Roleplaying

  • KORELAI MUSIC (albums and SFX): I composed the bulk of my music from 1988 and 1998, between the ages of 14-24, with another burst around 2005, occasionally adding to my repertoire between and afterwards. I performed at several venues around Perth, but prefer composing and recording. My work varies from pastoral and traditional folk to 60s folk/pop, folk/rock, experimental, blues/hick and alternative rock. I would consider Supernatural Tourist one of my most accessible albums.

  • WYRDLING ART (arts and crafts): I drew prolifically as a child, but stopped during high school and didn’t resume until adulthood. My early work was generic fantasy, but my evolved style is a hybrid of surrealism and monster art. I usually draw in service of writing but only recently made a concerted effort to hone my digital art in Photoshop. I've exhibited some work at Spectrum Gallery and sell a limited number of images for prints, shirts and other merchandise. I've dabbled in craft, but am hoping to pursue more down the track, e.g. birdhouses, textile butterflies and other Etsy-ish trinkets, as well as monster maquettes.

Inbetween my lecturing day job and own creative work, I provide limited creative media services based on availability:

  • Consultations: academic or creative consultations for individuals/business regarding study, art, music, writing and games projects (as Lost Isle Media or relevant brand).

  • Events - Lectures: on a range of academic topics I've taught across the years (culture, media, genre, the fantastic, game design, and philosophy etc) (as Dr Glen Spoors).

  • Events - Workshops, primarily on game design (boardgame workshops, introduction to Unity, writing workshops, creative theory/practice) (as Cheeky Monster Games).

  • Game or Art Commissions: sketches and digital art as well as serious games for organisations (as Wyrdling Art or Cheeky Monster Games); 

  • Events - Music: musical performances (as Glen Spoors or Korelai).

While I occasionally work with others, except where indicated everything sold at is my copyrighted work; illustrations or other work by others are cited in published material.

Note: I'm slowly updating the site with my backlog of work and based on interest I may change my schedule of preparing work for publication. Let me know if you have any issues with the site at (all correspondence to Lost Isle Media brands (Coradel Press etc) and (Facebook, etc) are directed to this address.
