Review update

A couple of reviews this weekend that I'd like to share with you.

Here's one for Howl of the Werewolf, from The Book Critics:

One of the gamebook genre popular before computers became common. Howl of the Werewolf is an excellent book where you are the hero. A hero who has been bitten by a werewolf and has to find a cure before he also becomes a monster. Wandering through a land full of evil with little help to be found and foes both good and evil you have to be good and lucky to survive to face your final foe and gain a cure.

Some of the Fighting Fantasy books have been so difficult as to be impossible to win. This one is not one of them. Complex, large and full of adventures, with excellent art, Howl of the Werewolf is a good way to have a good time away from a computer.
Rating: 4 / 5


And here's one for Pax Britannia: Unnatural History, from Good Reads:

This book is awesome. I'm disappointed to see it with anything less than a five star average... It's Indiana Jones meets Sherlock Holmes in a modern day steampunk London. The story is tight, short, and a freakin' blast. I'm not gonna get bogged down with narrative dynamics here, this is simply the definition of fun reading... It's steampunk with scallywags, dinosaurs, dirigibles, neanderthals, automatons, femme fatales, spidey-sense, and self-aware jokes. What are you waiting for?

Hi Jon - I have posted a review of Night of the Necromancer on Amazon, it should be there within 48 hours. If you can't wait that long however, I've also posted a review on the Unofficial Forum.
