|There have been over two dozen Ultima-related
books: walkthroughs, hintbooks, histories, and so on. Origin has
produced its own series of hintbooks for every game from Exodus
onward. They also co-produced a set of books that included
walkthroughs for Ultimas and many other games. Lynn Abbey wrote a pair
of fantasy novels about Britannia, the land the Ultima series is
set in. Caroline Spector, wife of Ultima Underworld producer
Warren Spector, wrote
a pair of books for Prima Publishing called the Avatar Adventures,
which are essentially narrative interpretations of the later games.
And of most interest to the Ultima fanatics like myself are the two
editions of the bible for these games and their history, the
Official Book of Ultima by Shay Addams.
I've tried to include every book that has a walkthrough for an
Ultima game. If you were to actually collect all of these titles,
you'd have quite a library!
