I'm not a fan of McMahon's current style.

Dan Dare isn't an important part of the prog's history, and seems irrelevant now; also I don't know how resurrecting that character would work today.

Pat Mills isn't going to do anything new for the prog.

Future sports are invariably boring, in my view. I wasn't a fan of the recent Bladers.

I agree with Tom's last paragraph.

I am not a fan of keeping episode titles and "next prog" and whatnot. With some stories that works, but with many it just gets in the way. I'm sure that's only personal preference, although I imagine some writers deliberately write a story with an eye on how it will look when it is collected.

I love Russ Nicholson's artwork. He did a private commission for me nearly ten years ago:

It did die last week, but hadn't the other psi-judges died by then? I may have to go back and check.

Maybe Anderson survived because she was temporarily absorbed by the Proletariat when the spoiler-tagged event happened?

I think he was replying to the previous post, hence the "given that..."

Glad to see it has Pandora Perfect in it, and is that Full Tilt Boogie too?

Inferno is at least partly redeemed by some of Carlos's best art. Just a shame it was wasted on such a ridiculous script. I was lucky in that in 1993 I was still too young to recognise its many shortcomings.

It was called Countdown Sector 106, and you spent the first part of the game on patrol dealing with random incidents, and then eventually a plot developed where you had to foil a terrorist group's nuclear attack on the sector. The text was fine (can't remember who wrote it) and the app interface worked well, but the art was dreadful.

At the time, yes. There was a gamebook in the form of an app a few years ago.

Interesting that all of the American Steve Jackson's books have multiple endings. I'm sure I've said this before but I much prefer these non-linear books where you can explore different locations like Robot Commando and Scorpion Swamp, over the one true path variety. Spectral Stalkers does that well.

The ability to trade up to a better robot or vehicle sounds like an innovative feature, I can't think of another gamebook that does anything like that.
