“Storytelling is at its heart, from the short stories that have featured in role-playing gamebooks, to the stories those books allow you to tell. With this book, you can simply submerge yourself in the tales of Promethea – the country created and ruled by Victor Frankenstein. When you come out at the other side, I am certain you will have a few stories of your own to tell.”
From the Foreword by Ian Livingstone
