Plus, my new blog on gamebooks here:

The Fabled Lands (published as Quest in the USA) were six fantasy
gamebooks published in the mid 90's. They were written by Dave Morris and Jamie Thomson, and featured colour maps and black and white internal art by Russ Nicholson and colour cover artwork by Kevin Jenkins.


The main difference between them and other gamebooks series such as Fighting Fantasy and Lone Wolf, was that Fabled Lands were non-linear in structure - each book represented a certain region of the Fabled Lands - and your character was free to wander at will, solving quests, trading, sailing ships, and acquiring wealth and prestige.


There were 12 books scheduled but as only the first six were published, Fabled Lands remains frustratingly incomplete.


Incidently, this is the best review site of the series I've seen:

Jonathan Mann's excellent Fabled Lands Application (aka FLApp), can be found here:

You'll need Java 5.0 at least, to play it, but it is more than worth the effort. In fact, it's utterly addictive!
