King Hrothgar’s great golden mead-hall, Heorot, lies under a curse; after sunset, the mirth-hating night-stalker Grendel comes to the hall to maim and murder! None are capable of killing the monster, though many have tried, until one day, Beowulf and his company of Geatish warriors cross the sail-road and land on Danish shores...

*     *     *     *     *

Beowulf Beastslayer is a brand new take on the Anglo-Saxon epic, re-imagining the events described in the poem as an adventure gamebook, and a gateway to the mythic world of the Scandinavian sagas. Once inside its pages, you will find yourself travelling to Heorot to embark upon a thrilling epic quest of your own.

YOU decide which route to take, which perils to risk, and which of the strange creatures you will meet along the way to fight. But whether you survive your quest and rise to the level of lauded hero - and maybe even king - or succumb to the likes of the monster Grendel and his sea-hag mother, will be down to the choices YOU make.

Will you follow the course of events as laid down by the scops and skalds of old – battling the fiend Grendel, his dam, and the fire-tongued dragon – or will you choose a different path and forge your own legend?

Beowulf Beastslayer! A tale of heroes... A tale of monsters... A legend reborn!

"The perfect reworking of England's greatest epic." ~ Dr. Janina Ramirez.

"An exciting interactive experience of one of the greatest epics of all time." ~ Prof. Dr. Oliver M. Traxel.

*     *     *     *     *

Written by award-winning author Jonathan Green, Beowulf Beastslayer is a 500 section solo RPG adventure gamebook, and the fourth title in the internationally critically-acclaimed ACE Gamebooks series, in which classic works of literature are given an innovative modern twist as interactive novels, and in which YOU are the hero!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
