Hey hey! Today I endeavour to finish off the second rewrite of The Druids Of Pneuma. What a nightmare last hundred refs it has been. With plot holes and cross links galore having to have been ironed out, it isn’t any wonder Puffin rebuked 19 year old gamebook writers. Anyway, I think I have come up with a lovely story, or peril and woe, action and adventure, monsters and magic.
Upon completion it shall be shown to three trustees for preliminary perusal, and the wonderful Mike Tenebrae will be briefed on internal illustrations. I have come up with a plan for limited Kickstarter rewards, which people will be able to get a special edition hardback or paperback as well as other goodies. Whether or not that funds, the book will be available on Amazon shortly after the Kickstarter ends. I’m guessing it’ll be a couple of pounds more than the first two Literally Immersive Gamebooks as its over twice as long at 410 references.
Of all the book projects I am ever likely to do, this is probably the most personal to me, and a product of my 19 year old self and 44 year old self combined. There’s that number again! It will also contain a couple of Easter eggs here and there. A 25 year old work is about to come alive. And with a cover by Malcolm Barter, binding me to the Fighting Fantasy series I love and grew up with. This is a dream come true. I’ll be at the Fighting Fantasy Beero tonight, if you cannot make it I wish you all a merry Yuletide break and happy New Year.
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.
While it’s all quiet on the Western Front I just have time to say to everyone Jonathan Green will be launching another Kickstarter soon to fund his new adventure gamebook, Neverland. This will be another classic tale based adventure with the Green twist.
Dave Sharrock has also produced a physical gamebook under the Woven Paths label. It looks mighty big next to a Fighting Fantasy book so should be well worth checking out HERE.

So anyway I offer this guy £40 to end his eBay auction early. He said, “no thank you I’ll leave it for bidders as I will get much more”
I managed to put the final bid on……it was £29.50. Enter the Jam!
I’m now the proud owner of a pristine copy The Warlock Of Firetop Mountain board game. (Got another one but the box is a bit scuffed) I’d love to meet Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson so they can sign it. Hopefully they’ll be an FFF2?
Tin Man Games of Australia will be releasing the Steam app of this game soon too. As a backer of this crowd funded venture , my name will appear in Zagors crypt! Speaking of Tin Man… Jonathan Green will be launching a Kickstarter project soon, with a game book based on The Wizard Of Oz! The Wicked Wizard Of Oz will be launched on Kickstarter on the 3rd of September, and you can find the public group of the same name on Facebook!!
I’m beginning to reap the benefits of backing #TinManGames recent Kickstarter project, #TheWarlockOfFiretopMountain , as my Tinny badge has arrived through the post today. That’s a good postal service for this time of year. Regardless, this is a very exciting project, especially as my name will feature in Zagors crypt. #FightingFantasy has come such a long way in the past two years, and becoming part of it makes me feel as enduring fan as ever.
Alice’s Nightmare In Wonderland is a new Kickstarter project by popular British author Jonathan Green. This new work will not be a novel but a gamebook, reminiscent of such works as Choose Your Own Adventure or Fighting Fantasy. You will doubtlessly take on the role of Alice, and make key decisions to decide the outcome of her fate.
