Gamebook Friday: YOU ARE THE HERO

Although not receiving as many reviews as it has in the UK, YOU ARE THE HERO has proved popular in America as well. Here's what just some of the reviews have had to say about my history of Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks.

This book came out of 2012 Kickstarter campaign which I supported. It exceeded expectations... So for all those who ever wanted to design your own "choose your own adventure," this is a great read.

The hardcover book is large and weighty - think coffee table book. It's very thoroughly researched, and with a lot of material that has not yet been published in FF fandom. It's the definitive history of FF, and that will stand for a long time, I'm sure. The graphic design and illustrations are also top notch, showing original art collections, movie appearances by Ian Livingstone (who knew?) and hundreds of other little known factoids. I recommend this for any true fan of FF.

Any fan of Interactive Fiction/Gamebooks will not be disappointed. This is an incredible book that is a delight to read.

Remember, you can still buy YOU ARE THE HERO both here in the UK and via Amazon in the US. Or, if you prefer, you can go direct to the publisher Snowbooks.
