Gamebook Friday: Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland won an award!

I discovered recently that Koszmar Alicji w Krainie Czarów, the Polish language edition of Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland, won an award in the A Child-Friendly World competition*.  

Koszmar Alicji w Krainie Czarów actually won the main award in the "Teenagers in the time of a pandemic" category, which is totally awesome! So a huge thank you to team at Muduko, my Polish publisher, and to everyone who voted.

Dracula: Klątwa wampira

Today is the Day of the Dead, so it seems rather appropriate that Dracula: Klątwa wampira - which is Polish for Dracula: Curse of the Vampire - is out today from Muduko in Poland.

There is evil lurking in the fear-filled Carpathians...

Take the fight to the legendary Count Dracula, or take on the role of the terrifying Prince of Darkness himself. It's up to you whether the story will follow the tracks of Bram Stoker's novel, or whether the whole world will plunge into darkness under the rule of an accursed ruler.


W przepełnionych grozą Karpatach czai się zło, któremu musisz stawić czoło…

Wraz z Łowcami Wampirów podejmij walkę, by powstrzymać legendarnego Hrabiego Draculę albo wciel się w samego przerażającego Księcia Ciemności. To od Ciebie zależy, czy historia potoczy się torami znanymi z powieści Brama Stokera, czy Anglia, a potem cały świat pogrąży się w mroku pod rządami przeklętego władcy.

If you are a Polish speaker, or a collector of ACE Gamebooks, you can pick up your copy here.

Gamebook Friday: Il Malvagio Mago di Oz launching at Lucca Comics and Games 2022

The Italian language edition of The Wicked Wizard of Oz - Il Malvagio Mago di Oz - is launching this weekend at the Lucca Comics and Games fair.

I'm told there will be two different cover formats, one featuring Kev Crossley's original artwork for the book, and another that reworks the art Mantikore-Verlag commissions for the German translation.


I'm very excited to be a guest of the Lucca Comics and Games 2022, as I have never been to Lucca before but also because this trip was originally supposed to happen in 2020.

However, while I am there, I am hoping to be able to drop in to The Rookery's first birthday celebrations, which will be taking place on Sunday 30th October at 7:00pm GMT.
