The Collectible ULTIMA

OFFICIAL Book of Ultima

The Official Book of Ultima is like unto the Bible for Ultima fans. This tome contains much of interest to the serious fan - the history behind the games, inside stories from Origin, hidden bits of trivia and arcana, walkthroughs for the first six games, and more. Shay Addams worked with Richard Garriott and others to do the writing, and interior artwork is by Denis Loubet. A second edition was published two years after the first, containing most of the same material with several new walkthroughs added. The second edition is still available in limited numbers from Electronic Arts.
