Gamebook list

This is a list of the gamebooks I plan to review. Note the absence of Lone Wolf 21 onwards - although I used to own several of these, I sold them because a) they were worth quite a bit and b) I didn't like them!

  1. That's an impressive list. I look forward to reading your reviews.

    It's OK - you can get the other Lone Wolf books for free from Project Aon if you ever feel the need to review them.

  2. OMG!
    I grew up with these books in the early 80's. As a young artist I would copy and enlarge these pictures to A2 size, still have some of them.
    What a trip down memory lane, THANKyou for these reviews!!!!!!

  3. There is a brand new and exciting gamebook series called Explore-A-Quest, by series creator Anthony Lampe. These books have amazing stories, multiple paths and endings, and are family-friendly.

    The authors are very interactive as well, and love to email their fans.

  4. Any plans to finish?? It's very interesting!

    1. I'll pick it up again at some point... life is very busy at the moment :)

  5. paul (or torallion) when you get to the house of hell game book, use this third version of the map on the internet (it's completely accurate) -
