as I re-read the old Baldur’s Gate books– Were you much consulted during their writing, or are they self-directed? And on top of that, do you yourself have a personal preference between the storytelling in the games vs the books?
Just a few curious thoughts. I saw the novels and gamebooks (aside from Volo's II, which I wrote) for the first time when they were published, like any other gamer walking into a FLGS. And being as the games ran on computers I never owned, I'm insufficiently familiar with all of their details to comment.
