Check it out: Books!

I know, I haven’t been posting. It’s a crying shame and all that. But what’s this? There’s news in gamebook land. Big news! Way of the Tiger is coming back with a shiny new seventh book promised, meaning the coolest cliffhanger ending in gamebooks will get resolved after almost thirty years (no pressure on them to come up with something good, right?). But on the other hand, a seventh Way of the Tiger book is a seventh Way of the Tiger book meaning ninja kicks to the head and shuriken akimbo and spitting poison darts at everyone in sight. It’s going to be great, and I’ll have an excuse to finally read them all. You can keep up with the latest news about that and some other gamebook fare over at the Fabled Lands blog (clearly I’ll have to try out Fabled Lands sometime).

But what of Fighting Fantasy? Well I went into the library, and behold:

Reading them one at a time wasn't an option.

Awwww yeah! I’m so going to… die in a really embarrassing way, come to think of it.

They were all there at the same time! I guess this is a sign,* so I’m off on a journey through Khakabad to find a crown which has magical leadership powers. Which you’ll have to wait hear about until I’m done. I’d put up a reader poll about which character to be, but the options are standard Fighting Fantasy hero, or a wizard. I think we all know what a book series called Sorcery demands from the reader.

*Whether this sign says “You’re going to miss one of the keys in Khare” or “You’re going to get killed by that one serpent you forgot how to fight” is anyone’s guess.
