Tin Man Games’ fifth Fighting Fantasy digital gamebook app, Starship Traveller, written by Steve Jackson, and first published in 1983, Starship Traveller makes a digital return with all new artwork, game features and soundtrack. It can be downloaded now from the iOS App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore!
Sucked through the appalling nightmare of the Seltsian Void, the Starship Traveller emerges at the other side of the black hole into an unknown universe. YOU are the captain of the Traveller, and her fate lies in your hands. Will you be able to discover the way back to Earth from the alien peoples and planets you encounter, or will you and your crew be doomed to roam uncharted space forever?

The Warlock has very little to report at the moment as he is waiting for quite a few things to come to fruition. Tin Man Games are tweeting vigorously about the imminent release of Starship Traveller but news has not reached these shores and the American market seems to be getting a better look in than us at the Appointment with F.E.A.R app. The Fighting Fantazine is still outstanding as is the long awaited and the much overdue You are the Hero book by Jonathan Green.
You are welcome to contribute your news for me to share, a letter or send me your Fighting Fantasy related amateur adventures, artwork, short stories or Maps. If you are on Twitter do not forget to join us @fightingfantasy for more updates. The Warlock will be posting random tweets over the next few weeks to test your Fighting Fantasy knowledge.
Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone have both been confirmed as guests at UK Game Expo 2014 in Birmingham on Saturday 31st May but the time is yet to be confirmed.

The Warlock likes to occasionally remind Fighting Fantasy fans young and old of the all the related books and collectables you can find out there in the big wide world. His alter ego has an established good old-fashioned website that is www.fightingfantasycollector.co.uk full of goodies to make even the hardiest treasure hunter envious. Although not updated in while, it is timeless and is still considered the place to go as a key reference. So, if you have ever wondered what all the different book covers look like, or curious as to what else Fighting Fantasy produced then look no further.
To compliment this, The Warlock, as the self-confessed curator of all such things also maintains a Collector’s Price Guide he publishes annually to help you in your quest of collecting and cataloguing all your Fighting Fantasy finds. You can also use it to value your collection. If you should have something in your collection that the Warlock hasn’t yet discovered please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details.
May your stamina never fail!

The latest edition to the Advanced Fighting Fantasy series published by Arion Games landed on my doorstep over the weekend following the successful Kickstarter campaign last year. Beyond the Pit is the follow up to the original Out of the Pit published in 1985 (28 years ago!).
It contains another 250 monsters, quoted as "dangerous and intriguing denizens of Titan" on the back page. Thanks to Andrew Wright for all his efforts in putting this together.
Good luck with your adventures and here's to number 3 as there are still many more to catalogue.

I for one am patiently waiting to receive two Kickstarter projects that funded last year. In fact YOU ARE THE HERO funded just over a year ago. Jonathan Green has eluded to the fact it has grown from an original word count of 30,000 to over 90,000 words and counting. It is currently with Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone for editing and fingers crossed will be with us soon (!). I am also reliably informed that BEYOND THE PIT is immanent and is only a week or so away from publication.
