It’s taken over three decades but FIGHTING FANTASY is finally getting its own convention. The iconic adventure game books spawned many imitators but their unique sense of action and fun has never been copied.  The one-day event will take place on September 7th at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel in Ealing, West London.

The event will launch YOU ARE THE HERO – A HISTORY OF FIGHTING FANTASY GAMEBOOKS, written by one of FIGHTING FANTASY’s most prolific creators, Jonathan Green. Vintage games publisher Arion Games will be running Advanced Fighting Fantasy table-top sessions throughout the day, and masters of smart phone fun, Tin Man Games, will also be there to talk about the digital versions of FIGHTING FANTASY classics.

Guests include authors Ian Livingstone, Jonathan Green and Steve Jackson. Artists Russ Nicholson, Chris Achilleos and Tony Hough will also be there and a plethora of game book related talks and panels are planned. UK based author Steve Jackson said, “This will be an event not to be missed by FF readers. I’m really looking forward to it.”

Tickets are £50 and include an adventurer’s backpack full of goodies and can be purchased here.
