Exactly one year ago today, at 3.00pm GMT, YOU ARE THE HERO - A History of Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks funded via Kickstarter.

At the time, I thought that the book would be finished, printed and in the faithful backers' hands by now. Unfortunately no plan survives contact with the enemy intact, as they say, and YOU ARE THE HERO was no different. What was planned as a 30,000 word book had swelled (at the last count) to 92,311 words, and it looks like it's going to get a little longer still before it finally sees print. However, I can assure you that its getting there, at long last.

In not entirely unrelated news, yesterday I met up with Ian Livingstone to go through his and Steve Jackson's comments on the manuscript. And very encouraging and helpful they were too, you'll be pleased to hear...
