i read this book wayyy back in the early to mid 90's
its definatley not anime.
My memory sucks (as you can tell...)
but i remember it to be a rather thick book, but the print wasnt small...though it also wasnt large, and there were no pictures
probably an older book than when i originally read it too
Something about the cover of the book (could be the color, but could be the title) speaks "red" to my mind.
The first author names that pop into my mind are
Arthur Conan Doyle
Orson Scott card
but i've done extensive searches on the works of both, and definately cannot find this book.
it's either the name of the author, or the name of the book, that takes up a BIG amount of space on the front cover
i know these details are absolutely horendous
now you know why i've searched for so long
i think i remember his computer game being about magical animals or something, he interacts with the characters, and when they are in big time
trouble, he actually becomes part of the game (though he doesnt know how) and he fights along side them
not lion witch and wardrobe for sure
i'll keep googling
anyone who has any idea, no matter how "bad" you may think it is, im all up for any suggestions
