Fighting Fantasy Author Jonathan Green On “The Books That Made Me”

In case you missed it, I was on again on Thursday, this time as part of Waterstone's “The Books That Made Me” campaign. (Thanks to Scott Malthouse for making this happen.)

YOU ARE THE HERO gets a mention, as does Pax Britannia and my Dreaming In Darkness novella The Serpent's Egg.

Here's the link...

Do you remember this from back in 2003?

Hit children's TV show Knightmare to return for one off special

The '80s and '90s favourite will be revived, along with the show's dungeon master, Treguard, as part of YouTube's Geek Week.

To read more about this story, follow this link...

Did you know...?
YOU ARE THE HERO Dragon level backer James Aukett made a documentary to celebrate Knightmare's 25th anniversary last year, and you can watch it here...

Rewards of the Spider God

Good news! If you pledged to receive the SPIDER level reward for YOU ARE THE HERO you should now have received your desktop Gamebook Adventures!
They've been a while coming, but you're going to love how these games look on your desktop, not to mention the fun you'll have playing them. In fact the experience will probably take many of you back about 30 years!
(As is always the way, if any of you have not received Gamebook Adventures 1-7 for your Mac or PC and think you should have done, drop me a line and I'll get it sorted for you. It won't have been Tin Man Games' fault - it will have been a clerical error on my part.)
It just remains for me to say a huge THANK YOU to Neil Rennison and Ben Britten Smith of Tin Man Games who so generously offered this reward in the first place and sent out the codes. And once you've played through GA 1-7 you should really check out their new app versions of a certain gamebook series from the '80s too. ;-)
May you always roll sixes!

Revenge of the Vampire

Fans of Les Edwards' cover painting for Keith Martin's Revenge of the Vampire (FF58) might like to know that the original is currently for sale on ebay.

If anyone's wondering what to get me for my birthday this year...
