Warlock was a British magazine published by Penguin Books and game manufacturer Games Workshop between 1983 and 1986. The primary focus of the magazine was fantasy, with emphasis on the Fighting Fantasy adventure gamebook series.
The magazine was established and edited-in-chief by Fighting Fantasy creators Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, running for 13 issues from mid-1983 until December 1986. Warlock was published in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, where the title had an extended run before ceasing publication in 1997.
Regular features included announcements, cartoons, competitions, interviews, maps of the Fighting Fantasy world, mini-adventures including abbreviated versions of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain and House of Hell with different artwork, a monster bestiary (becoming the basis for the Fighting Fantasy title Out of the Pit) and miniature figure tutorials.
