Two theatres and an ice rink

The Fighting Fantasy books are back, courtesy of a new title written by Charlie Higson. FF rivalled the Choose Your Own Adventure series, but both didn’t weather the rise of first computer text adventures and then just video gaming in general. A few hang on with digital alternatives such as Choose Your Story. Our favourite elements are the analogue ones, like these Fighting Fantasy Maps / The dizzying story of Symphony of the Seas, the largest and most ambitious cruise ship ever built. Cruise liner cutaway drawings are endlessly fascinating (by illustrators Kevin Hulsey and Beau Daniels, respectively) / is the Line 6 DL4 the most important guitar pedal of the last 20 years? / the cinematic return of 2001: A Space Odyssey (related Fanfare thread) / spend a while browsing around the Sociological Images site and blog / donate at Kickstarter to preserve Mimoa.
