Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw’s Novel, Mogworld, Available for Preorder

mogworld1 I knew about Yahtzee before he blew up and everybody started talking about him on the internet.

Ben has a website, fullyramblomatic.com, where he has everything from stories to video games he’s made in AGS. Then he started writing video game reviews on The Escapist, called Zero Punctuation. He even started a pub in Australia. Now he a novel called “Mogworld”, which is set to be published by Dark Horse, and available in August, 2010. It’s retail price goes for about $8.00.

The 350 page novel is of the comic fantasy type, and takes place in an MMO.

"In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about sixty years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all.

On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds: angry mobs of adventurers, a body falling apart at the seams and a team of programmers racing a deadline to hammer out the last few bugs in their AI."

You can preorder this novel from Amazon.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
