In the 1990s, with the rise of computer gaming, the gamebook craze was over - but the Lone Wolf stories were not! Joe Dever never had a chance to complete his series. Fans were unable to finish their adventure!
Then came the internet, and the Lone Wolf community gathered online. An explosion of activity led to new Lone Wolf roleplaying and video games, reprints of the books, and a renaissance of Lone Wolf publications abroad - notably in France and Italy. With Lone Wolf back in a big way, Joe got back to work.
In 2016, the first brand new Lone Wolf adventure since 1998 was printed by Holmgard Press. Unfortunately, it was during this time that news came of Joe’s struggle with cancer. Joe passed away in November 2016. He handed his notes for the final three books to his son Ben, along with the task of bringing the series to its conclusion.
Ben and co-author Vincent Lazzari are now working on the final book - Light of the Kai - in time for the 40th Anniversary of the series in 2024, and expanding the world of Magnamund into new formats for a new generation. Part of that task is bringing the entire series back into print.
