RIP Joe Dever

I was sad to learn yesterday of the death of author and gamer Joe Dever.

Joe was probably most well known as the author of the Lone Wolf fantasy adventure books – these are ‘choose your own adventure’ style books, and were hugely popular: 29 books exist in the series.

Whilst I never met Joe in person, I probably knew him best for his fantastic photo reports of games shows – especially Salute. He regularly posted a huge photo report after the show, which I always eagerly anticipated as it seemed that I always managed to miss something.

Sad news indeed. Our deepest sympathies are with his family and friends.

My thanks to Gary Keep for sharing the news with me

    A sad loss indeed, Neil.

    I knew Joe well from the ealry days at Loughton Strike Force, he was always a true gentleman and introduced my son to the Lone Wolf books – each new hardback version would be delivered and signed by Joe.
