About:

 

As far as I know, Fighting Fantasy was the series that started the gamebook genre. The first book appeared in 1982. The books have been published by Dell (the first few) then Puffin.

Up to now, the main series numbers 59 books, a rather impressive number. Rumours of a 60th book  - Bloodbones are arife, but it is confirmed cancelled, though it is listed on Amazon.com. It must be noted that although all of the books seem to be authored (or rather, presented) by the original 2 who started the series (Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone), they have actually written fewer than 20 books in the series. The rest are written by other authors. Luckily, it seems that SJ and IL had to vet the books written by the other authors, so there is some quality control present.
