A bestiary of monsters from Fighting Fantasy adventure gamebooks, this guide was later recognized as a source book for the Fighting Fantasy multi-player role-playing game and later still for Advanced Fighting Fantasy.

Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover

From the darkest corners, from the deepest pools and from dungeons thought only to exist in nightmares come the Fighting Fantasy monsters – the downfall of many a brave warrior.

Two hundred and fifty of these loathsome creatures from the wild and dangerous worlds of Fighting Fantasy are collected here – some are old adversaries, many you have yet to meet – each of them described in minute detail. An indispensable guide for Fighting Fantasy adventurers!
