There is a tendency to confuse Matthew Stone with a certain famous producer who is best known for creating the show "South Park". Matthew Stone actually tore himself away from Matt Stone years ago through sheer force of will, similar to how Nei was born from Neifirst in Phantasy Star 2.
He is a mediator and contributor for The Sanctuary Crew, a group of gaming enthusiasts who regularly livestream their favorite old and new games. In 2008, he and his family fled to Northern Washington due to the increasingly hostile weather in the Midwestern United States. From their elevated cabin, they expect to be perfectly safe when global warming causes most of the Olympic Peninsula to vanish underwater.
Tales from the Creature Keeper began as a series of short stories about his toys, but grew in size and maturity as he did. Now they're both too big, but Mr. Stone can get away with it because he's 6'5" and enjoys cycling, while the book... well, it remains to be seen if the book can get away with it that easily.

Well thought out characters in a well thought out universe.
While not stayed, it feels like the target audience is young adults and/or children old enough to play video games with weapons in them.
I have not read the related story, and this stood by itself nicely.
