@bcyy,
I understand what you're saying. Another thing is how M&S food products are much more expensive than cheaper priced goods from rival supermarkets - and yet, often as not the latter tastes just as good if not better! I suppose it's mostly down to personal preference. Lidl has some great bargains, especially remember a tub of peach yoghurt that was deliciously creamy. But not so much a particular pasta sauce - it was watery and not altogether pleasant - and didn't match up to well-known, admittedly more expensive brands. Some things are hit and miss whatever the cost. Hmm, sounds like a worthy proverb.

Marks & Spencer, Lidl a good bargain...
Sounds like you live in the UK. :-)

My only experience with Lidl was in Germany, where I got a lot of high-quality products, including a bottle of passionfruit juice and some local cheese. It didn't strike me as being a bargain, though. I am more used to the prices of Metro when it comes to German supermarkets.

Just to keep this conversation appropriate for this forum, can you believe that I once picked up two brand new copies of Creature of Havoc for the equivalent of $1.50 each? Now that's a bargain!

Also, if we're talking about prices instead of resources expended, I can provide yet another pretty extreme example: I am entitled to heavily subsidised housing, which costs me only $20/month (yes, 20, not a typo) to rent, and which I take maximum advantage of. Many of my colleagues, who also have access to the same subsidised housing, however, choose to buy houses priced at $400/sqft instead.

Great adventure! Took me a while to get the best ending. Really enjoyed the musical & pop-culture references too. Time to go listen to some Manowar!

That took far longer than I was expecting. Took a while to get the right ending because I kept finding things that worked but were ultimately wrong. Namely

Escape Neuburg Keep
Passed it on my first try, with 1 stamina left!
Brutal as hell, but well-written.
Ending was a bit abrupt though.

Just wanted to say thank you to the author for the immense effort that must have gone into putting this together. Anyone who enjoys ff will surely enjoy this one.

Specifically, the book is incredibly atmospheric. This is probably the books biggest strength. Every room is fascinating, even the ones your character does nothing in. And almost all of them are creepy. The sense of lurking dread is really, really well done.

My only criticisms are that the books is a little overstuffed with things to keep track of (take COPIOUS notes), and that the book is incredibly, incredibly difficult. I’ve read through it several times and still have no idea what the “best” way to get through is.

But really, really: If you enjoy ff gamebooks you will love this book! Super-compelling!

Thanks for a very nice review! It's things like this that make it all seem worth while :-)

And, yes, the book is certainly not easy in the slightest, but it is a 'fair' difficulty and not an 'unfair' one like certain FF authors ;-)

I've spotted on Amazon 'Assassins of Allansia' by Ian Livingstone. It will be released in September of this year. I'm wondering if Charlie Higson and Jonathan Green might be doing any more FF? Since they've clearly dropped the 'Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone presents...' from the cover of Scholastics titles (but not the FF logo), would it be possible for commissioned authors from the original Puffin series to return with ideas they didn't have a chance to have published during the mid-90's FF crash? I read on Titannica that Stephen Hand was at that time planning a third gamebook titled 'Blood of the Mandrakes'; wouldn't it be great if we had another 'Bloodbones' moment (or even several previously cancelled gamebooks) beginning to appear under Scholastic label! However, in the world of publishing, I'm not sure how realistic that would be. If asked, would the commissioned authors return to FF? Or are they to busy with other projects nowadays?

I heard that Stephen Hand wants nothing more to do with Fighting Fantasy. What would be cool is if some of the books here got the print treatment. However I'm sceptical as they seem to be aiming their books at a childrens' market now.
