End of March round up and upcoming events

Hi all! I had an idea, inspired by Emily Short's blog. Emily Short has made several great interactive fiction games, is an interactive fiction consultant and is distinguished enough to have her own Wikipedia page

If it's good enough for her, it's good enough for me.

If I keep copying her, maybe I'll get a Wikipedia page as well

Twice a month, Emily does a list of links and events that are coming up and I thought that would be a good idea for gamebooks. 

Samuel Isaacson has released the third and final book in his Entram Epic, Solar War. You can get it in paperback or on Kindle.

A total eclipse of the heart

A door able

Brian Hazzard has released the first 4 (possibly 5 at time of printing) episodes of his gamebook podcast, the Instadeath Survivors' Support Group. If you can spare some cash, you can show your appreciation on Patreon.

He's being worked to the bone

The Gamebook Zine issue 1 is out. You can get it as a paperback, on Kindle or as a free pdf. You can support it on Ko-fi.

Have you zine it yet?

The Gamebook Zine also ran its first gamebook jam on Itch. You can see the entries and results here. Also, keep an eye out for more in the future.

Mmmm, gamebook flavour.

The Defenders: Throne of the Bandit Lord Kickstarter is still going. It is fully funded, so you will get your products if you back it.

Alternative title: Shield convention

James Spearing will be posting an exclusive review to a gamebook on his Gamebook Adventures page. Keep an eye out for that!

Joonseok Oh has started compiling a list of all the free gamebooks out there. You can find it here.

Adam Mitchell has a Facebook page called Man with Kids Gamebook and RPG Reviews.

Man with kid.
Not pictured: more kids.
