It's that last part that I'd particularly like to draw your attention to here.
Seventy different gamebooks feature in the readers' poll and mine are ranked as follows:
45= - Curse of the Mummy
31= - Knights of Doom
31= - Night of the Necromancer
30 - Spellbreaker
23= - Bloodbones
23= - Stormslayer
1 - Howl of the Werewolf
Yes, you read that right - Howl of the Werewolf topped the survey with an overall score of 84.6% (Plot 85.8%, Gameplay 82.5%, Atmosphere 88.3%, Illustrations 81.7%). I have to say that I am utterly thrilled (needless to say) but should also mention that without Martin McKenna's fantastic illustrations, I doubt Howl would have placed so high, so thank you to him.
It must have been a mammoth task collating all of the votes and working out the rankings so I would also like to extend my thanks to Alexander Ballingall and his team over on the Fighting Fantazine for all their hard work.
