Happy 35th Birthday to The Warlock of Firetop Mountain!

35 years ago today, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, was first published by Puffin Books.*

In 2002 the book was published again by Wizard Books, with a special hardback 25th anniversary version being released featuring Peter Andrew Jones' original artwork.

And now, in time for another landmark anniversary celebration there is another new edition out from Scholastic Books.

Since 1982 to 2017 there have been board game versions and various eBook or computer game versions too - some of which will feature at Fighting Fantasy Fest 2 in six days' time.

But that's not all! 2017 also sees the release of the first ever audio drama based on a Fighting Fantasy gamebook - The Warlock of Firetop Mountain: The Hero's Quest - which will premiere at FFF2 as well.

1982 - 2017
May your STAMINA never fail!
