Demian's Thoughts: It is fairly well-known that The Warlock of Firetop Mountain was the only Fighting Fantasy book on which Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone actually collaborated. This issue reproduces Ian Livingstone's first half of the story plus a little bit of Steve Jackson's segment. There are a few sections past the river (which marks the halfway point of the quest) plus some endings which are here by necessity due to the nature of the quest's final puzzle. In any case, this is nearly identical to the book version, though a few essential details have been jumbled around.
