Didn't realize this was a reappearance of two characters from previous works by Fritz Leiber. With that said, one can completely read and enjoy this book without previous knowledge about these two guys. The trouble they get into is page-turning and Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser are a couple of characters that work really well together in kind of a love-hate-partner-competition comedic relationship. I picked it up because of Mike Mignola's art, the guy behind Hellboy, I admire and enjoy his work and I was not disappointed by this book.

You do have to stay on your toes with this book, it is a collection of short stories that are basically unrelated to each other, except that they all involve these two main characters. So they stories sometimes feel a little jam-packed and cramped in here, but with a little focus it is easy enough to understand what is going on.
