Well met, adventurers!
It's been a long time since my last Fighting Fantasy post. I've been kept very busy, and productive. Sales of my collection of dark fantasy and horror short stories "Return to 'Return to Oz'" has been going along quite a charm (you can pick up a copy if you've not already got one), but it does mean that I've been a little distracted from this blog. However, as you can see over on the right-hand side of the page, the full series proper has long since been accounted for. Aside from retreading the same path with them again (which I'm sure wouldn't be too interesting for you all), I've been thinking of possible alternative ideas on what I can do with them.
So, I have settled on a new segment which we'll tentatively call "Slaying the Dragon". I was going to call it "Turn to 400", but that one's taken ;)
The theme is simple - I play through the adventure until I've finished it, and then post a walkthrough, in my usual style. Here's the catch though - I'm not going to do all of the books. That would be far too time-consuming for me. I want to be able to give the best quality for my readers (because you deserve it), and I can't do that by giving only half an effort.
So, I'm going to limit my dragon-slaying to the top ten Fighting Fantasy gamebooks... chosen by YOU!
That's right, you get to decide which ones get a walkthrough. Maybe you have a Fighting Fantasy adventure that you've just never been able to complete and want to see me struggle through it? Have a particularly fiendishly difficult one that you want to torture me (who has only ever won ONE book in this blog!) with? This is your chance.
So, here's the options.
You can vote for as many of the choices as you like. But, naturally, only vote for the ones that you actually want to see.
The poll closes on 1st APRIL 2015.
At that time, I will announce which ten books have the most votes, and they will get a walkthrough written all about them.
Until then, happy journeys, folks!
