An interactive fantasy football adventure game in which the reader acts as the star player. Based upon a role-playing concept, the reader is challenged to appear as a substitute midway in an international football match alongside a team consisting of fictional players. They must then seek to score the goals in order to ‘win’ the story, although depending upon their performance their team may also lose or draw, or they might be injured, substituted and even sent off. Football Fiction places an emphasis on team-work and self-determination, stimulates decision-making, and encourages football fans to enjoy reading. The book contains differing results dependant upon decisions made, and can be re-read time after time after time. Suitable for all football fans aged 8+, and no upper age limit!

About the Author

Howard Robert Crockett was born in the shadow of Gillingham football club during October 1968, and during his childhood in the 1970s he became mesmerised by the glamour of international football, particularly the world cup tournaments of that decade. As a mature student, Howard graduated from the University of Kent, Canterbury, with a BA (Hons) Degree in History. It was whilst studying that he discovered not only the love of writing, but he also developed the inspiration behind the football fiction series. Howard is not only a writer and an artist/cartoonist, he is also an accomplished musician who frequently plays at a semi-professional level in North Kent and London, specialising in the genres of Rock and Blues, amongst other styles. He is well-travelled, having visited parts of Arabia and Egypt, China, Latin America, India and the USA as well as much of Europe. A married father of three children, Howard's other interests also include motorcycling, the paranormal, and enjoying good company wherever he may find it.
