Gamebook Friday: Beowulf Beastslayer!

Here is the cover for my next ACE Gamebook, Beowulf Beastslayer, featuring the awesome artwork of Russ Nicholson.

King Hrothgar’s great golden mead-hall, Heorot, lies under a curse. Each night, the mirth-hating monster Grendel comes to the hall, from its lair in the fens, to maim and murder! None can kill the monster, though many have tried.

For twelve long years the bitter blood-feud continues, until one day, from across the sea, comes a saviour – Beowulf Beastslayer!

Beowulf Beastslayer is unlike other books. In fact, it is a gateway to the mythic world of the Scandinavian sagas. Once inside its pages, you will find yourself travelling to Heorot to embark upon a thrilling epic quest of your own.

In Beowulf Beastslayer, YOU decide which route to take, which perils to risk, and which of the strange creatures you will meet along the way to fight. But whether you survive your quest and rise to the level of lauded hero, and maybe even king, or succumb to the likes of the monster Grendel and his sea-hag mother, will be down to the choices YOU make.

A tale of heroes... A tale of monsters... A legend reborn!

Beowulf Beastslayer will be published by Snowbooks on 7th October 2019.
