Underground boy

I am surprised that nobody has mentioned this fact - the order is different, though:

1 - The Warlock of Firetop Mountain
2 - The Citadel of Chaos
3 - Deathtrap Dungeon
4 - Creature of Havoc
5 - City of Thieves (coming soon)
6 - Crypt of the Necromancer (prevoiusly Crypt of the Sorcerer) (coming soon)

However, in Waterstone's in Shrewsbury, I could buy the Warlock of Firetop Mountain and Creature of Havoc, but could see no sign of The Citadel of Chaos.

I owned far too large a collection of these.

I wouldn't bother with anything before City of Thieves and Deathtrap Dungeon. Scorpion Swamp is diamond. Seas of Blood is better. Beneath Nightmare Castle was the first one I bought, mistaking it for a Knightmare gamebook. The later volumes didn't turn up second-hand but my cousin had some. Creature of Havoc is genuinely different, bit of a mystery. I liked Midnight Rogue, Black Vein Prophecy and Night Dragon but not Mage Hunter.

Fantastic entry, Paul; and it's given me an idea or two.

The Apprentice

I have all the Limited Edition reprints - and will, likely, write something to add to this entry. The is a pretty decent website for the relaunch too.

Thanks for the compliments, LordJim... so what are those ideas of yours?
