A Howling Success?

‘Howl of the Werewolf’, my latest Fighting Fantasy gamebook to be published by Wizard Books, appears to have been well-received and is even garnering a few tasty reviews.

You can check out more for yourself here (at a certain well-known book supplier’s website) and here, on the Fighting Fantasy forums.

Meanwhile, for all you fans of lycanthropic gothic-ness, here is Martin McKenna’s original design for the beast on the front cover of the book, and minus the rain.

It's a great illustration, shame the tree got a bit cut out of the final thing. Is there a reason why they changed the position of the hand in the final thing?

The reason I was given was 'opera singer arms'. 'Nuff said.

I prefer the original thinner arms, but love the rain effect in the final version. I still can’t find this book in my local shops! I’ll have to travel further afield or simply order it online…

I would suggest you add it to an online order with somewhere like Amazon, which will bump your order up to free delivery.
