Gamebook Friday: International Gamebook Day

I recently learned that 1st August is International Childfree Day, which drove it home to me that you really can have a day for anything.

So I am proposing that 27th August be designated as International Gamebook Day, when people around the world can celebrate their love of interactive fiction.

Why 27th August? Because it was on that day in 1982 that the first Fighting Fantasy gamebook, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, written by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, was first published.

So who's with me?

Gamebook Friday: NEVERLAND - Here Be Reviews!

When a new book comes out I excitedly/anxiously check Amazon.co.uk for any reviews, but I often forget to check Amazon.com.

Recently I happened upon NEVERLAND - Here Be Monsters! on Amazon.com and discovered these rather pleasing reviews...

"If you are wanting to give modern gamebooks or choose-you-own adventure style books a chance, this is a great one to get started with."

"The characters aren't exactly like the book and movies that we've enjoyed and loved before. Rather, they are a twist on the classics. The story is enjoyable, with many options, twists, and turns. You might encounter Giant Serpents and Sabre-Tooth Tigers, or Saurian Lizards and a Colossal Crocodile."

"The actual writing is so imaginative and the artwork is amazing. Definitely recommend all of Jonathan Green’s adventure gamebooks."

"J. M. Barrie's fantasy world is re-imagined by Jonathan Green through a "mixed fantasy" lens with an RPG bent. The book provides re-playability since each of the four characters available for selection provide different perspectives and play-styles, and each with a unique ending. A recommended read especially for gamebook aficionados, though if you are not familiar with other works by the author, then you clearly aren't a gamebook fan."

You can buy your own copy of NEVERLAND - Here Be Monsters! on Amazon.com here, and on Amazon.co.uk here, and a signed copy direct from the author here.
