Laurel Leaf EditionsEdit
Laurel Leaf began publishing the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks in the November of 1983. The gamebooks featured a new cover design with the first eleven books using a generic white background, whilst books 12 through 21 had a generic black background. Initially the gamebooks had completely new cover illustrations, by Richard Corben (The Warlock of Firetop Mountain to Island of the Lizard King) and R. Courtney (Scorpion Swamp to Freeway Fighter), until 1986 when with Temple of Terror the original Puffin Books cover illustration were used till the range ended with Trial of Champions. During this run House of Hell was retitled House of Hades.
After Dell was bought out it was, in 1999, merged with Bantam Books to form the Bantam Dell Publishing Group, the largest division of Random House. Laurel Leaf was shifted within the organisation to become an imprint of Random House Books For Young Readers.
