"I am tired, Gray Mouser, of these little brushes with Death," Fafhrd the Northerner said, lifting his dinted, livid goblet and taking a measured sup of sweet ferment of grape laced with bitter brandy.

"Want a big one?" his comrade scoffed, drinking likewise.

Fafhrd considered that...

(from "The Frost Monstreme")

Two books in one, so:

SWORDS OF LANKHMAR The only actual novel in the Fafhrd & Gray Mouser series, in which the city of Lankhmar is threatened by invasion from an overwhelming army - i

This review is for the whole Lankhmar series. What can you say about the guy who coined the phrase "Sword and Sorcery". Besides, Fafhrd and Grey Mouser are two of the most legendary characters in literature.

Captivating... stories of Lankhmar, stories of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser draw you into the their world.

Nobody mixes adventure, humor, philosophy, weirdness and erotic romanticism (although more often then not the pursuits of the ladies are unconsummated and the ladies themselves odd and dangerous and not really all that sexy) better than Leiber. Return to Lankhmar is particularly lovely because the stories tie together quite a bit and make reference to previous adventures. One is left at the end with not so much of a sense of epic adventure as a mood of worn out adventuring and romantic pursuit. ...more

Still cool short stories about Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, though it felt kinda slow in the middle. The story at the end picks it up again, but all in all not as good as the other two.
Now the fourth collection is waiting (Farewell to Lankhmar), but I'll take a break from them and read Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

Fritz Leiber was one of the more interesting of the young writers who came into HP Lovecraft's orbit, and some of his best early short fiction is horror rather than sf or fantasy. He found his mature voice early in the first of the sword-and-sorcery adventures featuring the large sensitive barbarian Fafhrd and the small street-smart-ish Gray Mouser; he returned to this series at various points in ...more
