Finally I got to meet the Steve
GAMESFEST 4. He
was very personable and I spent quite a bit of time talking to him on
the Fighting Fantasy stand. Steve kindly signed ten books for me! Now
you know what I look like as well, yes the bald one.
On the left in the photo is the one and only
author of Spellbreaker, Knights of Doom, Curse of the Mummy,
Bloodbones, Howl of the Werewolf and the latest, Stormslayer.
GAMESFEST 4 Advert.
A great day
out in Watford as you see, loads of stands with goodies for sale and
table top games taking place all throughout the day. See the goodies I
bought back below.
Jonathan kindly signed six books for me as
well. He even signed Arrooo! in my copy of Howl of the Werewolf. He
also tried so desperately to share more on his yet to be released
Night of the Necromancer but Nick from Icon (Wizard) Books, who
can be seen in the background in the black t-shirt, prevented him from
letting anything slip.
Jonathan and Steve in the thick of signing
books and sharing stories with other fans who were in awe of them
both. I am honoured to be called a legend by Jonathan on his
come on, look at them both, the epitome of FF at the very least. Steve
caught Jonathan stealing his catchphrase "May your stamina never fail"
that he had signed in my copy of Stormslayer.
