I picked up a bunch of the books at some bookstore awhile back. They're unread/complete. Also those 4 Sorcery books and the book of spells for that. Also some old FF sealed computer game (firetop mountain) and more stuff. Looking to sell the lot, should I just Ebay it? Are any of the books "rare". Is it worth my time to write down here what I have?

Thanks.

It depends on the which books. The 4 sorcery books are not rare but are slightly harder to find than in the past. The FF books below #20 are common and the USA editions are even more so. The UK editions (which are larger and with green spines) are harder to come by. Once you get to numbers in the 40s and 50s some of those are very hard to find. I know that there are two issues in the 30s, one in the 40s and five in the 50s I haven't been able to find in the last two years. But at the most I'd say the harder to find books would be in the $20-$30 range while common books are in the $2-$5 range.

Mostly high numbers "I think"
The following books have that lime green spine. Penguin books.
30- chasms of malice
56- knights of doom
33- sky lord
18- rebel planet
44-legend of the shadow warriors
57- magehunter
13- freeway fighter
23- masks of mayhem
34- stealer of souls
43- the keep of the lich lord
52-night dragon
46- tower of destruction
48- moonrunner
17- apointment with fear
47- the crimson tide (I've been through that adventure a few times myself;)
32- slaves of the abyss
14- temple of terror
27- star strider
36- armies of death
35- daggers of darkness
26- crypt of the sorcerer
22- robot commando
41- master of chaos
40- dead of night
59- curse of the mummy
Also some unnumbered books: these have unique spines.
The riddling reaver
deathtrap dungeon
fangs of fury
the trolltooth wars
shadowmaster
the fighting fantasy 10th anniversary yearbook
A big book called: fighting fantasy monsters "Out of the Pit
The warlock of firetop mountain software pack (sealed) with a book and video game.
All this stuff was just sitting on a shelf... no wear but some dust and maybe a little staleness from sitting there for years and years.
Oh yeah, the Sorcery book set as well.

the books in the 50's do well, esp 59 which is the last and the hardest to get, I would expect that they would do ok sales wise as they are the uk (aust/canada) pufin prints and not the US prints so might do well as collectos won't have to pay international shipping (and we know how expensive that can be) lower numbers are pretty much worthless but in the states could be worth more than that, only the first 21 book were printed in the USA  .. riddling reaver is a seperate book, deathtrap is an earlier print with no number on thats all (no6).... fangs, trolltooth and shadowmaster are novels (3 in the set) (don't followen em though).. the 10th annivery yearbook is quite rare (prob worth 5-10 pounds)



Damiens page is probably the best around

I think there are a couple Warlock software.. here's one I watched recently


** expired eBay auction **


But I know there is one for the DS lite as well.. for the real collector..

The riddling reaver - Is for the Fighting Fantasy RPG
deathtrap dungeon - is #6
fangs of fury - Is #39

These last two are novels set in the FF RPG universe
the trolltooth wars
shadowmaster

And Out of the Pit is for Advanced Fighting Fantasy

Fangs of Fury #39, #33, 47 and 59 have proven hard to find for me. I've been keeping my eye out for them for 2 years and no luck yet.
