Hooked on Classics - Sneak Peek

Issue #12 features an interview with Robin Waterfield, covering his Fighting Fantasy gamebooks:

Were you involved at all in the launch of the Fighting Fantasy novels series in 1989, and what do you think of this step away from gamebooks for Fighting Fantasy?
I was involved in the sense that people asked me whether I thought it was a good idea – and whether I wanted to write one! I did think it was a good idea, and I did want to write one, but I got overtaken with other work: I was in the middle of my second, and last, stretch in the Penguin office, as a commissioning editor this time. I can’t remember what the plot was; my hero was a dwarf, though.
