BBC article on Fighting Fantasy

It tells little new, and in the end devolves into promo for the upcoming non-fiction book "You Are The Hero - A History of Fighting Fantasy", but it is nice to see mainstream media cover FF.

and in a positive way. Some mainstream articles about gaming and related can descend into a sneering tone.

I think it seems like a pretty balanced, typically BBC-neutral article and if it keeps FF in the public's attention then that's no bad thing. I can certainly relate to the guy talking about scouring 'thrift shops' on the off-chance he'll spot one of those tell-tale green spines. I know I do every time I go in a charity shop or wander round a car boot sale...
