Happy Father's Day!

Remember how your father used to inspire you by sharing with you all the things that he enjoyed as a child? My dad shared with me his love of books, and his keenness for constructing plastic Airfix kits.

For many of us growing up in the 1980s and '90s, Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks were a massive part of our lives, and now it's time to pass that love on to our children. And what better way to do so than at FIGHTING FANTASY FEST 2014, the world's first ever convention dedicated to Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks?

Meet the co-creators of the series, Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, along with fantasy art legends Russ Nicholson, Malcolm Barter, Chris Achilleos and Tony Hough. Enjoy book signings, talks, an exhibition of rare FF collectibles, the official book launch of YOU ARE THE HERO - A History of Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks, an auction of items from the Jackson and Livingstone archive, and the chance to drink at the Black Lobster Tavern. (Soft drinks are available for the children.)

So head over to the Eventbrite ticketing site and order your Adult and Child ticket today. (You will receive one Adventurer's Backpack, while your child will receive a free Fighting Fantasy gamebook which they will be able to get signed during the day.) There are limited numbers of Adult and Child tickets available, so book now to avoid disappointment later.

We shall look forward to seeing you both there.

Oh, and Happy Father's Day!
