Happy Birthday, Lewis Carroll!

Today marks what would have been Lewis Carroll's 190th birthday. Of course, it was his work that inspired Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland, which is still my most popular ACE Gamebook. So from today, until the end of the month, you can pick it up for a knockdown price on DriveThruRPG, and there are still a few physical paperbacks available on eBay that are going for what is, quite frankly, a steal.

So, if you haven't got yourself a copy yet, don't delay and do so today. And don't forget to join Babel_17 on Twitch, every Monday evening from 9:30pm, when Julian will be playing through Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland live!

'TWAS - The Krampus Night Before Christmas LIVE - Part 5!

Ken left us on a cliffhanger last time, at the start of the climactic battle at the end of 'TWAS - The Krampus Night Before Christmas. There may not be much of the adventure left, but be sure to checkout You Decide! Part 5: ‘Twas the Krampus Night Before Christmas by Jonathan Green tomorrow, from 7:00pm.

Happy Burns Night!

Yes, it's time for my annual blog post reminding you that I have written a book about Scotland called Scottish Miscellany: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Scotland the Brave, that still sells very well in America. So well, in fact, that a new edition is due to be released on 17th February.

Revel in the fun and fascinating explanations behind Scottish traditions and folklore - from William Wallace, Rob Roy, and MacBeth to golf, kilts, and haggis.

Here are the answers to questions you’ve always had - or never knew you had - and more as he covers all aspects of Scotland. From Scottish culture to the ancient history of the country to modern pastimes, this book has all that and more. Learn…

Why the thistle is the floral emblem of Scotland,
How Scotch whisky is made,
Why the Scots celebrate Hogmanay,
How to play the bagpipes,
If there is really a monster living in Loch Ness,
What is Gaelic,
What is the Stone of Destiny,
And much more.

This delightful book is the perfect gift for anyone planning a visit to Scotland, with an interest in Scottish history, or a drop of Scottish blood.

"Well organized, easy to read, high interest but low enough vocabulary for a 10 or 12 yr old to read independently. Full of unexpected facts, good photos. All 'round 100%." ~
