Back in October, we covered the heart-warming story of a Secret World Legends player who wrote a novel based on the game’s IP. The best part was that Funcom gave author Amber “Blodwedd Mallory” McKee the licensing go-ahead to do it in the first place, when y’all know that most IP holders would sooner whip out a lawsuit. Warm fuzzies all around. The first book, TO SIR, WITH LOVE: An Unofficial Legend of The Secret World, came out last year, while a sequel, LONDON UNDERGROUND: An Unofficial Legend of The Secret World, just released at the end of January. And now McKee has generously offered a stack of digital copies for our readers! “TO SIR, WITH LOVE: An Unofficial Legend of The Secret World – When the world ends, the fog rolls into Solomon Island and the dead start to rise.
