At the core of the gamebook community

Greetings weary traveller!

Welcome to the website of Fighting Fantazine, a magazine dedicated to gamebooks and interactive fiction of all shapes and sizes.
I like this magazine a lot as it's incredibly well put together and very professional.

Each issue brings to its readership the latest gamebook news from around the world and reviews of recent releases, alongside which are presented interviews with the authors and illustrators who brought us various gamebook adventures over the years. In addition, an original, mini gamebook adventure is published in each issue along with matching original artwork. The rest of each issue is filled with a mixture of individual columns, fiction, and articles looking at gamebooks through a variety of lenses from serious to silly.

The actual magazine comes in two flavours, a free, downloadable, pdf copy and a printed hard copy for those who still enjoy the paper and pen experience of gamebooks. Both can be obtained from this site - see Current for the most recent issue and the Back section for past issues).
The obvious love, care, and effort that goes into each issue is amazing and inspiring.
