Format: Paperback
I love the Alices Nightmare in Wonderland book by Jon Green, and the first colouring book showcasing Kev Crossleys fantastic artwork, so buying this book was a no-brainer. Pre-ordered a while back, arrived today. I think the cover is great, with the partly coloured in sections, really makes Alice stand out. The internal artwork is just fantastic, from the detailed feathers of The Jubjub Bird , the amazing linework on The Return Of The Red Queen to the angry Frumious Bandersnath (my personal favourite at the moment. I also like the fact youi get a whole section at the back, written by Kev Crossley, about how he goes about drawing the designs and the process he uses, which is the first I have seen in a book like this. My only slight gripe is that the paper seems a little thin so you can see the previous page & colouring through on the next page. I still love it and look forward to the Wicked Wizard of Oz one!

Format: Paperback
Jonathan GreenJonathan Green is no stranger to gamebooks, having written no less than seven Fighting Fantasy titles (and a handful of titles for other series). This time he turns his experienced hand to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the classic tale by Lewis Carroll, but darkly reimagined as Alice’s Nightmare in Wonderland. The book was funded via Kickstarter, and is a testament to the online gamebook community that is keeping this format alive.

The rules of the gamebook will be very familiar to readers of the Fighting Fantasy series, as the procedures for testing Alice’s Attributes and resolving her combats are very similar. There are often opportunities to use Alice’s other Attributes to avoid combat altogether. There are also two limited-use special abilities that Alice can call upon to get herself out of trouble. This adds a welcome variety to how you can solve encounters in the game: fight your way out, dodge your way out or think your way out.

The story itself details Alice’s return down the rabbit hole into the magical world of Wonderland. At first the narrative is very similar to that of the original book, but it quickly becomes apparent that this version of Wonderland isn’t quite right. In fact, things are very, very wrong. Many of the classic Wonderland characters are featured in the story (the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, etc.), but with the horrific, steampunk-infused twist that Green injects into many of his stories. The book is ably illustrated by Kev Crossley, who also illustrated Ian Livingstone’s Blood of the Zombies.

Format: Hardcover
The adventures of Lewis Carroll’s Alice have provided a vast pool of influence and inspiration for a multitude of things. These include various imaginative re-workings of the world of Wonderland and the actual story itself; many of which have endeavoured to explore a darker, more gothic side to the world Carroll created. This book follows that type of approach and literally turns Alice’s dreams of Wonderland into the stuff of nightmares.

Set, it seems, a few years or so after Alice’s first visit to Wonderland, Alice has now somehow forgotten those escapades. They have not forgotten her, however, and after sighting the White Rabbit once more, who now seems to be a cybernetic fusion with his pocket watch (an ominous sign of things in Wonderland); Alice is back down the rabbit hole again. But this time the reader controls her actions.

Jonathan Green has authored multiple adventure game style books; most notably contributing to the successful Fighting Fantasy series including writing its guide, ‘You Are the Hero’. It should come as no surprise then that the game mechanics of ‘Alice’s Nightmare in Wonderland’ are quite similar to those of Fighting Fantasy. Though there are obviously some tweaks and differences to that system. There are more attributes/skills which are to be tested. Considering the story behind the adventure the most intriguing of these is possibly your INSANITY rating. However, this probably won’t play a particularly huge or detrimental role to the reader unless they really mess up early on.

The reader also has two special abilities suitable to Alice and the dream world around her – ‘curiouser and curiouser’ and ‘the pen is mightier’.

Format: Paperback
Last year I rediscovered the joy of fighting fantasy style gamebooks with that old classic the Warlock of Firetop Mountain. I had forgotten how much fun these were when I was a kid!
Now, take that concept and make it a lot darker, add a soupcon of steampunk, a dash of diceplay and a whole lot of the delightfully demented Alice stories by Lewis Carroll and you are a starting to get this book.
This was bought for me as a present by my husband, who knows how much I loved Lewis Carroll (I named my cat after Sylvie from Sylvie & Bruno) and actually one of the things I really liked about this book was how much attention was paid to the source material. Characters from Wonderland and Looking Glass are both represented and a knowledge of the original stories does seem to help - if only by giving you a heads up as to how very badly things are about to go.
The first time I played through I was probably a bit too cautious and quickly ran out of game saving "pen is mightier than the sword" spells. I'm definitely playing again and this time I'm going to kick some TickTock arse!
In conclusion well worth the money :)
