A Man of Letters - Sneak Peek

Issue #13 features an interview with Peter Darvill-Evans, covering his Fighting Fantasy gamebooks and work at Virgin on the Doctor Who original fiction ranges.

You introduced willpower as a new stat in Beneath Nightmare Castle. What made you tinker with the rules in your first book?

In each of my books I tried to stretch the original Fighting Fantasy concept, but in each case in a way that I hoped was appropriate to the subject matter. In a tale of Lovecraftian horror, willpower seemed like the necessary additional ingredient.
