This is a story about Fighting Fantasy and Me. It’s probably going to take place mostly in the 80s and 90s but I know exactly where it’s going to begin. A few years after Terry Pratchett gave me the encouragement to forge on with my writing career, I decided to contact another one of my literary heroes in order to actually get an opinion on something I was writing.
Then it happened. I was at an airport, getting ready to fly out to Italy, when a friend called me and said: ‘What do you think of Neil Gaiman?’
I used to buy every Discworld novel as Terry released them, having originally found the series in 1990 via Eric. This is my ‘nth’ re-read of Witches Abroad, part of my favourite series set on Discworld and featuring my favourite characters: Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick.
