"Farewell to Lankhmar"--the last volume in the Fafhrd and Grey Mouser series--is a strange, hard-to-evaluate book. It is an old man's book with an old man's preoccupations, and the reader who expects the usual mixture of free-wheeling, picaresque adventures will be very disappointed.

His two aging heroes are now grudgingly monogamous men with daily responsibilities, settled in the arctic outpost of Rime Isle, far from the the sultry sexual multifariousness of Lankhmar. The two are literally curs...more
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.

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
