Lots of lovely hits to my blog recently. I see there are many playing Lair Of The Lunatic which is wonderful and I hope you’re enjoying it. Not much to report here other than I now own a copy of Doctor Who And The Fescan Threat. Certainly the largest single gamebook I have ever laid hands on at 2001 references and its as big as an Argos catalogue. Seek and acquire.
So nothing else to report. In the meantime here’s my latest FF meme. Corny as cereal flakes.
Well here I am after embarking on my latest game book adventure. Jonathan Greens Night Of The Kraken!
As this book was released just a couple of days ago I decided to do a little review. Can I recommend this book?
I have been a fan of Jonathan Greens work since the early 90s. He is a master of the game book genre and this adventure is no exception. Jonathan delivers not only an eerily satisfying seaside scifi horror for the Doctor but he captures the personality of the character really well with quips and put downs and general manic chatter. Though I am perhaps more akin to more complicated game books of this author, and his writing is toned down so the book is more suitable for younger readers than normal, this doesn’t detract from a thoroughly enjoyable adventure game for all ages who love these genre’s! Go buy a copy! 🙂
One of my writing heroes, Mr Jonathan Green, has had a new publication released today.
Night Of The Kraken is a playable book where you decide the outcome of situations that arise as the story unfolds. As long serving game book author I’m sure Jonathan will have delivered something very special here so I ordered a copy from Amazon earlier today. (And in the hope he will sign it lol).

Here’s some Doctor Who memes I’ve knocked up. Share and retweet 😀

Here i bequeathe you evidence of which party #TheMaster joined post #Utopia. #TheDoctor wasn’t just fighting an evil #Timelord. He was trying to bring an end to #UKIP. Saxon was a ukip candidate in #Lincolnshire before his rise to power!
Excellent well written story, genuinely scary monsters and mesmerising visual FX. Peter Capaldi finally gets an episode worthy of his stock and in my humble opinion, this is the best episode I’ve seen with ‘new’ monsters since Blink! If you haven’t seen it, you’re in for a treat 😉
