When I bought, many, many years ago, the first Oberon gamebook (the Italian translation of the World of Lone Wolf series), I remember I was a bit disappointed.

At that time (as I was only twelve) I didn't knew that Gary Chalk was just the illustrator of the book, I thought he was a sort of co-writer. So, when I read "Dever-Page" instead of "Dever-Chalk" I feared the books would have been somehow worse than Lone Wolf.

I was damn wrong! The saga of Oberon (Grey Star for you, English readers) is simply wonderful! There's magic, adventure, journey, that astonishing final revelation in the last book and even a bit of romance (an element that LW lacks). I think that Dever experimented in these books with ideas, themes and plots he couldn't throw in LW ones (which stay, notwithstandingly, as the best gamebooks ever).
