One February day, when Hephaestus was hitting on The Muses, they began a playful argument: Is it possible for a mortal man to be *too* creative? What would happen to his primitive brain if it were to suddenly overflow with ideas? Zeus, never one to leave an argument to the fate of mere words, sent a lightning bolt to earth where it struck upon a hapless young man--your author, James Schannep.

Thus Click Your Poison books were created as a repository to store the overabundant brain fruit. Each of Schannep's books split into three unique storylines and contain over 50 possible endings. But the fate of each book; nay, of mankind, rests with YOU, dear reader. For it is your choices that will shape the story in these books.

From the Author

What is a Click Your Poison book? 
Gamebooks, Interactive Fiction, Branching Path Stories, Text-based Adventures, Choose Your Own... Whatever you call it, I write tales in many different genres with many, many endings. And you, Dear Reader, determine how these novels unfold. Darker, longer, and more complex than the old children's paperbacks, Click Your Poison books are the future of decision-based reading. Simply click the hyperlinked choice, and the story unfolds before you, different each time.

Do I need to read the series in order? 
No. All the Click Your Poison titles have a shared multiverse, but there's no need to read them chronologically. Just pick the one that interests you most and jump right in!

Are there more coming soon?
