French editions of Fighting Fantasy gamebooks by Jonathan Green

Just over a week ago, Curse of the Mummy was published in French for the first time, almost 20 years after it was first published in English. This means that all seven of my Fighting Fantasy adventure gamebooks are now available in French, with five of them currently in print.

Both Spellbreaker and Knights of Doom (my first two published books) have been published in two different French editions, and for some reason, the cover art was reversed from edition one to edition two.

YOU ARE THE HERO receives its 50th 5-star Amazon review!

I thought it a worthy landmark to celebrate. My history of Fighting Fantasy gamebooks has received its Return to Firetop Mountain of reviews. That's right, the 50th review of my 50th published book has been posted on, and it's another 5-star one.

Here it is in its entirety.

In case you haven't yet picked up a copy of YOU ARE THE HERO yourself yet, you can still do so here.

“A Fantastic Tome”

5 stars

"You Are The Hero is an amazing exploration into the history of the hugely popular Fighting Fantasy game book series. Jonathan Green has painstakingly pieced together a veritable bible of information including brand new artwork, interviews with creators, illustrators and fans alike. No stone has been left unturned."

Gamebook Friday: Steve Jackson's The Trolltooth Wars and YOU ARE THE HERO on the radio

I would like to start this week's Gamebook Friday post by congratulating PJ Montgomery and Gavin Mitchell on the successful funding of their Fighting Fantasy graphic novel Kickstarter. Thanks to all their hard work, and the generosity of their backers, this autumn will see the release of Steve Jackson's The Trolltooth Wars. If you've not heard about the book already, (a) where have you been? and (b) look forward to seeing the graphic novel at a con near you before the year is out.

In other Fighting Fantasy-related news, last Sunday I was interviewed on Radio Saltire as part of Kevin Hall's Movie Moments show, which has a Science Fiction and Fantasy theme for the week. Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, even if you don't live in Scotland and didn't catch the show last weekend, you can listen to it right now, right here.

Congratulations to Steve Jackson's The Trolltooth Wars Kickstarter

In case you haven't already heard the good news, at 7:59am GMT PJ Montgomery and Gavin Mitchell's Kickstarter to produce a graphic novel of Steve Jackson's Fighting Fantasy novel The Trolltooth Wars achieved funding.

Here's how one YOU ARE THE HERO Warlock marked the occasion...

Nine lucky backers will not only be receiving the graphic novel, they will also be receiving a sighed copy of YOU ARE THE HERO .

In case you weren't able to back the Kickstarter, or found out about it just a little too late, you can still pick up a signed hardback of my History of Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks here.
