Special Delivery

Look what finally arrived in the post!

Yep, its my Advanced Fighting Fantasy adaption of the classic Fighting Fantasy gamebook The Warlock of Firetop Mountain. I know it's been out for a while now, but this is the first time I've actually put my grubby mits on a physical copy. It's a real thrill for me to have contributed to an offical FF-related product and I'm proud to add it to my FF bookshelf (which you can catch glimpses of in the background of the photo).

There will be an article on the writing of this book in an upcoming issue of Fighting Fantazine (along with my new gamebook adventure The Lords of Stone, but more on that in a future post). I will delve into the many different sources that contributed to what is, I hope, the definitive look at Zagor's classic dungeon lair.

Special thanks to Graham Bottley for getting a copy signed by the legends themselves, Steve Jackson, Ian Livingstone and Russ Nicholson.
