Swords in the Mist (2007)
4.07 of 5 Votes: 4
Swords in the Mist (1968), the third entry in Fritz Leiber's set of sword and sorcery tales featuring the giant barbarian Fafhrd and his compact ex-slum-boy comrade in adventuring and thieving, the Gray Mouser, cobbles together four stories from the 1940s, 50s, and 60s in fix-up rather than publi...
The Knight and Knave of Swords (1988)
3.9 of 5 Votes: 3
an extra star for the overall enjoyment I got from this pair of amoral scoundrels. but ...Other reviewers pointed out that the last book in the series compares unfavorably with what went on before. I felt the decline in quality already in the previous book ( Swords and Ice MAgic ) but as a comple...
The Swords of Lankhmar (1968)
4.08 of 5 Votes: 1
The Swords of Lankhmar, fifth volume in Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and Gray Mouser books, stands out among the others by being the only novel in the series. It has often been remarked upon that this form is not really suited to the tales Leiber tries to tell, and I am finding myself in agreement with ...
Swords and Ice Magic (1986)
3.99 of 5 Votes: 3
I'll say it straight off--Swords and Ice Magic is not that great.Oh sure, there are some good parts. "The Frost Monstreme" is a good story in the old Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser model, where they're approached in a tavern and given a task for hope of gold and glory. While on that task, they run in...

Originally posted at FanLit. Black Gondolier is a collection of horror stories by Fritz Leiber. I love Leiber’s LANKHMAR stories — they’re some of my very favorites in fantasy literature — and I’ve enjoyed several of Leiber’s short stories and one of hi...
Our Lady Of Darkness (1984)
3.74 of 5 Votes: 5
Έχω όλα τα βιβλία του Λάιμπερ που έχουν μεταφραστεί στα ελληνικά (δεν είναι και πολλά, δυστυχώς, μόλις έξι συν σκόρπιες ιστορίες εδώ και κει), αλλά αυτό είναι μόλις το πρώτο που διαβάζω. Συνδυάζει στοιχεία urban fantasy και τρόμου και αυτός ο συνδυασμός μου άρεσε πολύ. Σίγουρα το βιβλίο δεν είναι...
The Best of Fritz Leiber (1997)
3.99 of 5 Votes: 1
Fritz Leiber is a legendary name in science fiction and fantasy, up there among the stars with the likes of Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke et al. I do not know whether the present book includes his best (since the author has endorsed it himself, it should), but it does have some fantastic storie...

The Wanderer (2001)

Perhaps best know for his sword & sorcery stories featuring Fafhrd and Gray Mouser, Fritz Leiber wrote successfully across a number of genres, including horror, fantasy, and science fiction. His epic sci-fi disaster novel, The Wanderer, won Leiber the Hugo in 1965 (he also won in 1958 for The Big...

The Sinful Ones (1986)
3.69 of 5 Votes: 1
An interesting but uninvolving fantasy novel founded on the following premise: since we can't directly perceive the inner lives of others, we don't really know for sure that they have any, and it may be that other human beings are literally automatic contrivances which only give the appearance of...
Swords and Deviltry (2006)

I was a huge fan of Lord of the Rings when I was growing up. I really admired Tolkien's world-building, the staggering amount of backstory that bolstered every little bit of his unfolding mythos. It's a world based on history, language and the austerity of myth. It's also very British.If Tolki...

Conjure Wife (1993)
3.84 of 5 Votes: 4
Considered a modern horror story for it's time, Conjure Wife reinvents the 'witch' as well educated women far removed from the green-skinned, hag of our collective imagination and allows her story to unfold on a modern university campus. The action begins fairly early in the book when Norman Sayl...
