Mustering the strength of sorcery, they descend into the depths of Lankhmar and rise to battle in order to save the soul of the ill-fated city.The late Fritz Leiber's tales of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser launched the sword-and-sorcery genre, and were the inspiration for the fantasy role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons.BONUS AUDIO: In a wonderfully written essay, Neil Gaiman says, "The Swords of Lankhmar glitters and shimmers and dances", and Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser are "the finest rogues you will ever meet".More
"One of my very favorite books by one of my very favorite authors, starring two of the most delightful characters in the history of fantastic literature." (Neil Gaiman)
"Fritz Leiber's tales of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser are virtually a genre unto themselves. Urbane, idiosyncratic, comic, erotic and human, spiked with believable action and the eerie creations of a master fantasist!" (William Gibson)
