Sværd & Trolddom

Now is a great time for collectors of overseas editions of Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, and Danish speakers for that matter.

Fighting Fantasy may be almost 40 years old - it is the 40th anniversary next year! - but there are still new translations being published, as well as new titles, of course.

Two of those new titles - Ian Livingstone's The Port of Peril and Charlie Higson's The Gates of Death - feature among Faraos Cigarer's first tranche of releases for Sværd & Trolddom, or 'Swords & Sorcery', as Fighting Fantasy is known in Denmark.

The other two titles are the original Fighting Fantasy gamebook, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, and the seminal City of Thieves.

(Dæmonfyrstens Forbandelse actually translates as 'Curse of the Demon Prince', which was one of the working titles for The Port of Peril.)
