The stories contained in this volume are okay, but definitely not as good as those in the earlier books. The last and longest one especially suffers from being rather disappointing, as the premise of the Mouser being trapped underground while Fafhrd is whisked into the sky upon an airship are largely used as framing devices for weird erotica and other such things that don't really match what I want out of a fantasy story. The concept of the sky kingdom is interesting but sadly is barely developed.
