I’d be remiss in not publishing this bit of news despite the fact that you’ve probably already seen it (Scott Malthouse has published it and so has Galactrix who has just started a Fighting Fantasy play through blog).
So the cover for Blood of the Zombies, due out early this August, has been released and also it will have a green spine and the FF logo.
I’m glad that there are elements of the original there as they will fit in well with the rest of the Puffin collection, the books that most of us grew up with.
Looking at it, however, I couldn’t help but get a feeling that there was something missing from this cover until I realised that it was missing that classic dragon sitting atop a box or having the author’s name inside a green jagged area.
However, this wasn’t always the case:
Join me tomorrow when I blog about another upcoming gamebook (I’m starting to sound more and more like Mark Rosewater).
