Damn, I definitely had the manticore one when I was a kid. That cover just brings the memories flooding back.

I remember those books well… I read loads of them, and I still have a few.

I just got a whole bunch of weird looks from my co-workers. These were a mainstay of many winter nights as a kid and I just about wet myself laughing seeing them again like this. Great stuff 😀

“The Loneliest Manticore” sounds like a Tom Holt novel.

I, for one, am greatly offended at the misrepresentation of my people, the farting sluggoths.

I never played these (I stuck to the Goosebumps choose-your-own-adventure series, and cheated the hell out of them), but the many-eyed, bloated beastie on the first Farting Sluggoth cover looks oddly familiar. I think it was on the bookshelf in my French class. Were these books ever published in French?

Just thought I’d let you know (assuming you don’t already) that someone at 9gag.com either thinks your books are real or thinks submitting your work under their name is the way to go. This link goes to a repost of the image they made (scroll past the movie posters), as 9gag marks the post number (3464462) as one you have to log in to see.

Anyway, here it is. A search for “dafuq did i just read” brings up other places with the same image.
