2022 - The Year of Fighting Fantasy!

27 August 2022 marks 40 years since the publication of the first Fighting Fantasy gamebook, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, by Steve Jackson and Sir Ian Livingstone.

As you can imagine, 2022 is a going to be a very big year for Fighting Fantasy and it got off to a fantastic start with Sir Ian Livingstone receiving a knighthood from the Queen!

As you might expect, 2022 will see the publication of not just one but several books connected to the world's premier gamebook series. As well as the publications, there will be various events taking place throughout the year, celebrating 40 years of FF, including LarpCon in March.

This year's International Gamebook Day actually falls on The Warlock of Firetop Mountain's 40th anniversary, and a week later, on Saturday 3rd September 2022, Fighting Fantasy Fest 4 will be happening in West London*.

So put the date in your diary and watch this space for more details soon!

* COVID willing!
