Edition Descriptions: Original edition, original cover:
This first variant printed by publisher Gallimard in the Folio Junior series.

Original edition, original cover (Time-Life):
This second variant printed by publisher Gallimardis a unique variant offered for subscribers to the series Enchanted World in France and given away with the first issue. It is very similar to the original edition of Gallimard/Folio (same pagination, same dimensions, same credits) however includes no ISBN (as it was not offered for sale), and the words "édition Time-Life Amsterdam" replaces "Gallimard" on page 5.

Original edition, revised cover:
This third variant printed by publisher Gallimard in the Folio Junior series. The cover features new artwork (i.e. the warlock and dragon from the original UK series). In addition, the Folio Junior cabochon logo is omitted from the front cover, different to previous editions. This omission was the case for the whole Sorcery series, Lone wolf up to number 2 and up to number 11 for Fighting Fantasy gamebooks published between January and March 1985.

Original edition, Défis fantastiques:
This fourth variant printed by publisher Gallimard in the Folio Junior series. This printing features new "Défis fantastiques" ("Fighting Fantasy") branding on the front cover (sword and shield, and text) and spine (sword and shield). In addition, the back cover includes variations in text content from the previous printing. Note: This edition was printed between 1985 and 1994.

Original edition, Défis fantastiques (numbered back):
This fifth variant printed by publisher Gallimard in the Folio Junior series. This printing is almost identical to the third printing except it features the number of the book on the back cover after the words "Défis fantastiques". Note: Gallimard printed up to #30 before adding the number after the series title on the back cover and reprinting the entire series. Note: This edition was printed between 1985 and 1994.

Special edition:
The sixth variant printed by publisher Gallimard in the Folio Junior series. This is a special edition that has nothing to do with the anniversary edition of Fighting Fantasy. The back cover was inverted and you had to flip the book to enjoy the additional contents being an additional 41 pages of games, quizzes and fun facts. It was proposed by the French author of the Les messagers du temps series.

Reissue edition:
This seventh variant printed by publisher Gallimard in the Folio Junior series reissued with a new cover.

Reissue edition (Wizard Books Series 1):
This eight variant printed by publisher Gallimard in the Folio Junior series reissued in line with Wizard Books.

Reissue edition (Wizard Books Series 1), revised cover:
This ninth variant printed by publisher Gallimard in the Folio Junior series reissued in line with Wizard Books.

Reissue edition (Le Grimoire):
This tenth variant printed by publisher Gallimard in the Folio Junior series. It is a corrected version of the book that was printed with the help of Le Grimoire, a small publisher owning the right of Lone Wolf Role Playing Game.

Reissue edition (Scriptarium):
This is the eleventh variant printed by publisher Gallimard in the Folio Junior series. It is an extended version which includes a few pages of Allansia at the end of the book (in a new corrected version), thanks to Scriptarium a small associative publisher.
