I was fortunate enough to grow up in a home where Fritz Leiber books were purchased as fast as they were published; my father was a fan. Now that my children are reaching the age I was when I was introduced to Lankhmar and the rest of Leiber's worlds, I thought they might find them as much fun as I had. I was dismayed when I discovered that most of Leiber's work seems to be out of print, but I was delighted to see that many of the stories are now on Kindle.

If you're a fan of Leiber, then you are either going to buy this book, or own in already, no matter what I say. If you're just starting with Leiber and Newhon, then you probably want to read the books in order and reach this book later. It's possible to leap into the middle without missing much -- most of these stories were written as stories for magazines, so they're intended to be understood independently -- but there is some backstory, and there is some fun in watching Leiber develop the characters and figure out who they are.

"Swords in The Mist" is a solid entry in the Fafrd and Grey Mouser tales. These tales, which range from short stories to longer, novel-length works, also range in topic, tone, and plot. Unlike many authors, who seem to make a career writing variations on the same stories, Leiber is unpredictable and difficult to characterize. As a result, some of the stories have more appeal than others, but which stories these are varies somewhat from reader to reader. In my opinion, "Lean Times in Lankhmar" and "The Adept's Gambit" are the best of this bunch, and are essential stories in the Newhon chronicles.

More Leiber, more joy.

While the story "Adept's Gambit" (which is where the quote in the headline above is taken from) occupies the majority of this book, "Lean Times in Lankhmar" is the best of the lot. To quote a bit of that tale: "Gods have their own doorways into and out of space and time, and it is their nature to vanish suddenly and inexplicably. Brief reappearances are all we can hope for from a god whose chief life- drama on earth has already been played, and indeed it might prove uncomfortable if he hung around very long, protracting a Second Coming— too great a strain on everybody’s nerves for one thing."

With passages like that, how could you possibly go wrong? You can't. Prose that is acerbic, informative, playful, insightful or simply put, and forgive me for it, DIVINE. Again, Leiber demonstrates his complete mastery of the language by illustrating how it isn't just what you say that matters, but how you say it is every bit as important. Truly fantastic stuff.

The author is the master of sword and sorcery genre. He should be since he was the inventor. A excellent read.

Two of the best Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser tales are in this volume. The Cloud of Hate and Lean Times in Lankhmar. The later introduces one of Leiber's great inventions; the Gods of Lankhmar (as apposed to the gods in Lankhmar).

Written mostly in 1947. Leiber has a true talent for story-telling, not taking his characters too seriously, but always staying in character. Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser are in rare form in this, the first of their books I read 40 years ago and still love to re-read.
