Niente, non mi ha catturato.
ho trovato noiosa la parte di Fafhrd nelle sue terre, più scorrevole e divertente quella di Gray Mouser e piuttosto sbrigativa quella con i due assieme.
Da quello che è considerato un classico ello Sword and Sorcery mi asepttavo sineramente di più, forse il tempo non è stato molto clemente con questo libro...

For those who wish to enter the world of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser, the archetypical heroic couplet of the swords and sorcery genre, this is where you start. It contains three short [or, more accurately, longish] stories that introduce these two intrepid characters and the wonderful, magical, mysterious world of Newhon, world of the great Cold Waste and of Lankhmar, City of the Black Toga, of the savage Mingol horsemen, and of fierce northern barbarians.

In the first tale, The Snow Women, we meet the young Fafhrd, giant of stature, red-gold haired and mighty of thew and discover how he came to find the glorious Vlana. We learn how together they fled Fafhrd’s own Snow Clan, pursued by the swords of savage foemen and the ensorcelments of the terrible matriarch Mor as they headed to the warm lands of the Eight Cites. The second tale, The Unholy Grail, tells of the beginnings of the young man known at first only as Mouse, the wizard’s apprentice, and of how he could never really work out whether he pursued the black magic or the white, and hence became Grey. Nor was he timid, as the name might suggest, but was possessed of great cunning and agility, which transformed the Mouse into the Mouser. The third tale, Ill Met in Lankhmar, speaks of their eventual meeting and the forging of their remarkable partnership.

The origins of these two characters go back to the late 1930s, to the very beginnings of the swords and sorcery genre. Under Leiber’s masterful pen they evolved over the years to become the pair that we may enjoy today, ever fresh, ever new, the inspiration behind many a later story, my own novels included. Leiber’s unique style, dramatic yet tongue-in-cheek, is ageless and I can only hope that many generations of fantasy fans will enjoy his story-telling in the years to come, and, hopefully, inspire a few like-minded souls with a gift for words to try to emulate him.

To do that, first you must learn of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser, and ‘Swords and Deviltry’ will begin the lesson.

Four and a half stars from me.

I remember back in the day (and those were the days!) when my brother and I were both really young and into the Fafrd & the Gray Mouser series by Fritz Leiber. I mean, he was really into them and consistently recommended them to me. Sadly, I had never gotten around to reading them – until I recently found a discounted e-book edition that I couldn’t resist. Turns out it was Swords and Deviltry - the first in the series.

Almost immediately after I started reading, I was hooked, and saw why they were such an important part of his psyche back then. The first part introduces Fafrd as a youngster of 18 in his ice-world. The feelings and images I received as I read were, strangely, from those days when we were living in back country with my grandmother with few modern conveniences. In the winter, snow and ice crystals were an intimate part of our world. Leiber’s writing even brought back feelings of youthful mystery, adventure, and exploration. Fafrd’s yearning for “civilization” even echoed because in those days we were too young to know what we had and yearned to be in the city. It was as if Leiber was channeling our shared essences into his story.

From a more literary perspective, I appreciated how Leiber incorporated allusions to old Anglo-Saxon; Vikings; different eras of European history, such as that of the Mongols; and an interesting culture where the women were witches and threw frozen snowballs as well as spells at men. From a writer’s perspective, I admired how Leiber fleshed out the characters into real human beings. From a fan’s perspective, I enjoyed the Robert E. Howard flavored scenes of sword and sorcery.

Following Fafrd’s meeting with Mouser, the story veered into a direction I hadn’t expected. The new partnership was the opposite of cartoonish, which I had feared. Yes, they had brawn and brains, but also a plausible humanity (considering the time and place).

Just goes to show I should have acted on my brother’s advice ages ago. Well, what do they say?

“Too soon old. Too late smart.”

Also goes to show that my younger brother was always better and smarter than either of us may have given him credit.
4.0 su 5 stelle First in The Series; the Logical starting point 13 settembre 2016

This book is the logical starting place for the Lankhmar Series of Fafhrd and the grey Mouser. In this introduction there are three short stories, the first introduces or rather gives an origin for Fafhrd, the second an Origin for the Grey Mouser, and the third and final story unites the two.
In truth, I found the Fafhrd and Mouser stories a little slow and plodding (hence only four stars), but the third story truly takes off. From the first page, you get the feeling that these two characters were meant to be together, and every page of prose flows magically.
I've bought all three volumes of this latest release, as I have been searching for them for twenty some years. I was first introduced to the characters and world via the original "Deities and Demi-Gods" book for AD&D, and it's all here. The Weirs magic, the theivery, everything.The stories have a real sword and sorcery feel. Its like reading a roleplaying campaign in parts.
My understanding is that they are being released in a form of "print on demand", in that, as long as they get enough orders, they will print more. I hope and pray that at least the next three get this printing treatment, as I am halfway through the second book and it is even better than the first! Now I want them all! Please buy this if you are thinking about it! Support keeping these great books in print!

4.0 su 5 stelle Even Social Outcasts Can Have A Purpose In Life! 30 luglio 2014
Di LTC LDD - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
It's been almost 50 years since I first read this book. It was nice to discover that after all that time the story was just as fresh as it was in my youth. This book introduces the characters of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser and relates how they came to join forces. The first part of the novel focuses on Fafhrd and his clan. This provides a solid background to understand the character and how he reacts to situations. The portion of the novel pertaining to the Gray Mouser's history is less detailed, but in keeping with the mystery that seems to surround the Mouser. After all, he was learning to be a wizard, which made him an outlaw from the start. Both have love interests, and both have struggles to overcome. Leiber's tale is not a deep character study; it's an adventuresome tale of two social outcasts who find themselves uniquely qualified for a special niche in their world. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the ride!

5.0 su 5 stelle Fritz Leiber...the greatest fantasy novelist you've never read. 18 agosto 2014

Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
It was great to revisit this classic I first heard about Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser when I started playing AD&D. I was what...12 or 13? (That would be 1980 or 1981, if you're wondering.) I read every novel from the series I could get my hands on, and I loved every one of them. Swords, sorcery, adventure...but with a certain racy, naughty side that I hadn't really seen before. I've since lost my old paperback copies, so I was happy to see that these stories were still available. Fritz Leiber deserves much more credit and attention than he gets.
