From the moment when they first met, in the commission of the same, audacious theft, Fafhrd, the giant barbarian warrior from the Cold Waste, and the Gray Mouser, master thief, novice wizard and expert swordsman, felt no ordinary affinity. Forged over the gleam of sharpened steel as, back to back, they faced their foes, theirs was a friendship that would take them from adventure to misadventure across all of Nehwon, from the caves of the inner earth to the waves of the outer sea. But it was in the dark alleys and noisome back streets of the great fog-shrouded city of Lankhmar that they became legends. THE FIRST BOOK OF LANKHMAR includes the first four volumes of the hugely enjoyable Swords series.… (mehr)

I have had mixed feelings about this book. Leiber's skill as a writer is fantastic, he paints us wonderful pictures with his words and brings this world to life. He uses irony and humour incredibly well. But his plots aren't always all that. This is an omnibus of four books. The first, Swords And Deviltry was alright, well plotted and fun to read, but the language wasn't as gloriously enjoyable. The second, Swords Against Death, was linguistically great, and improved throughout, but the plots of the stories were pretty thin. I decided after the third iteration of Fafhrd gets magicked and Mouser saves him that I would stop reading, but the next couple of stories picked up. I liked Bazaar of the Bizarre best. In the end though I wanted a change and decided to come back to the last two books another time. ( )

Leiber's Lannkhmar books will always have a place in the fantasy canon. If you haven't tried them, imagine the "Discworld" books done straight & noir. ( )

I must confess that I had some preconceived notions about Fritz Leiber’s work. Because he’s credited with coining the phrase “Sword & Sorcery,” and because I never hear women talking about his stories, I imagined that they appealed mainly to men who like to read stuff that has covers like these:


But, four factors made me decide to give Fritz Leiber a try:

I feel the need to be “educated” in the field of fantasy, which means that I should read novels that are out of my normal repertoire.

Rob and Greg are fans (see their reviews) and I tend to enjoy what they enjoy (even though they have Y chromosomes and probably like those covers).

The fantasy shelves are glutted with urban and teen fantasy and I’m feeling a bit nostalgic.

Reasonably entertaining early sword & sorcery from the Fantasy Masterworks series. I may be damming it with faint praise here, but at least A) it's not as dated as many from that period, and B) it's not as self-important as many from that period! It knows how to have some fun, and I quite enjoyed the time I spent with the two likeable protagonists. I wasn't particularly happy with the very ending, but given the time it was written, I won't hold it too much against it.

Enjoyable second book in the Lankhmar series. While a lot of it is fairly standard sword and sorcery stuff, there were some nicely imaginative sections, and a few bits made me grin.

I think I'm beginning to acquire more of a taste for these Lankhmar books. I think it's a case of both the writing getting better as the author goes along (certainly it's more infused with his sly sense of humour, and he's beginning to play more with the possibilities of his world), and me becoming more accustomed to his characters and style. There was one absolute laugh-out-loud moment ("where is the jug?") that still has me grinning :-).

An amiable conclusion to the First Book of Lankhmar omnibus, with some gripping action sequences (I'm thinking particularly of the trek up the mountains here) and some nicely atmospheric sections, laced through with Leiber's particular brand of humour. (And yatta! I *finally* get to cross this giant doorstop of a book off my 'To Read' list!!!) ( )

Swords and Deviltry
Sundered from us by gulfs of time and stranger dimensions dreams the ancient world of Nehwon with its towers and skulls and jeweles, its swords and scorceries.
Swords Against Death
A tall swordsman and a small one strode out of the Marsh Gate of Lankhmar and east along Causey Road.
Swords in the Mist
Muffled drums beat out a nerve-scratching rhythym and red lights flickered hypnotically in the underground Temple of Hates, where five thousand ragged worshipers knelt and abased themseves and ecstatically pressed foreheads against the cold and gritty cobbles as the trance took hold and the human venom rose in them.
Swords Against Wizardry
The hag bent over the brazier.
