This gamebook, a light fantasy adventure aimed at a slightly older audience than most interactive books, is rather unique. Released in conjunction with a contest to win $500 and a gold wizard statue, it is designed so that it can be read either interactively or as a linear novel. This is accomplished by putting assorted numbered sections in the back of the book while arranging the bulk of the text in linear order. Readers wishing to interact with the book can occasionally be directed to the numbered sections, where it is possible to get sent forward or backward in the text or even be killed; those who just want to enjoy the novel can ignore such instructions. The degree of interactivity is obviously limited by this approach, but it’s an interesting concept.
