Author Jonathan Green shoots for a hatrick in his third exciting ACE gamebook adventure, Neverland – Here Be Monsters. After the success of funding Alice’s Nightmare In Wonderland and The Wicked Wizard Of Oz, this newly launched Kickstarter project is already 40% funded in just 10 hours.
The book, part story part game, will see you play a survivor of the doomed Titanic ocean liner. When you come to, you find yourself washed up on the shores of a strange island packed with rampaging monsters a swashbuckling pirates. But what’s this…? Peter Pan?
Once again Jonathan weaves a popular child classic into a steampunk-style yarn, beautifully illustrated once again by the inks of popular artist Kev Crossley.

Having been exposed to much literature recently has reawoken a deep desire to write my own book. I have often toyed with the idea of doing my own interactive story or an autobiography, both of which appeal to me right now. I think in all honesty the former would be a better idea as it’s others work of this kind I have dabbled in, most recently proof reading and play testing Jonathan Green’s upcoming book, The Wicked Wizard Of Oz. (Available for pre order on Amazon)
I’ve chosen this option, and ideas are beginning to pop in my mind and I can see the story’s structure taking shape. Im making notes and next I shall plot out the sequences. The big question is, do I bother with a combat system? Many fans of this genre fess up to not bothering with associated dice rolls and prefer to assume they been successful in any opposing sequence encountered. Lighter books of this genre such as Choose Your Own Adventure and Time Machine don’t bother with this mechanic. It will surely make it easier to write as well.
That said, its time for lunch soall the best, Jam out!
Been rather flattered this week. Ive recieved a dedication in a book but I cant really speak about it right now as its still in production stages. I feel rather proud. Today is my first day off work, as im using up the leave I have left over. Vics got sky now, the internet isn’t working but the tv plans active. Means I should get Walking Dead back, but for tonight im looking forward to #HotFuzz at 9pm
Theres much to do while im off. Painting, laying a carpet, check up at docs. If only I could win the.lottery I can get out of all that
Good news to all those people who couldnt make Fighting Fantasy Fest back in 2014…and those who did! Well the truth is, Fighting Fantasy Fest 2 has been confirmed with this picture riding round the web promoting the event.
After the awesome atmosphere and success of the first FFF, im poised, ready and waiting for the ticket launch and hoping to meet all my fellow fanatics and heroes of this ever popular book series. Eventbright was chosen as the last ticket vendor so keep an eye out and join the ‘Fighting Fantasy and Other Gamebooks’ Facebook group to keep ontop of the arrangements.
This time last year, my work collegue lent me the M. R. Carey book, The Girl With All The Gifts. Last night we was lucky enough to go and see the film adaption. Although an amount of the book content had been left out, this film presented us an hour and fifty minutes of fun with a screenplay fairly loyal to the story. Horror fans should enjoy this film which sheds a new light on the cause of “undeath”, although as in 28 days later, these ghoulish creature are living infected rather than decaying ressurections. The titular Girl, played by the talented young Sennia Nanua really delivers the character I had visualised in the book. The ever amazing Glenn Close and Gemma Arterton co star, this film is real girl power! With some incredibly well timed sequences and the odd jump scare, I recommend you see this film if not at the cinema then as soon as its on DVD but the book itself is far more superior!

Creative writing doesn’t get any better than this. British author Jonathan Green has now opened a kickstarter for an epic adventure book set in Oz. But this isnt a cover to cover read. You can assume the role of Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tinman or Lion and decide what happens during the story as choices are given to you.
Illustrator Kev Crossley provides the artwork for this nightmarish adventure with a steampunk twist. Pledging towards the production costs in this crowdfunder will open up a choice of rewards, from a dedication in the book to a special hardback edition. To learn more, click this link here.
