Fafhrd and Gray Mouser visit the Witch's Tent to consult a sorceress who holds the secret to their escape-but when would they ever need to escape? Their luck has been good so far; one way out should work. Their luck continues as thieves. They are the best thieves in Lankhmar until better positions arise: The Lords of Quarmall. Gray Mouser and Fafhrd steal a kingdom within a hill and declare themselves Lords.

Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser are two sword-and-sorcery heroes appearing in stories written by American author Fritz Leiber. They are the protagonists of what are probably Leiber's best-known stories. One of his motives in writing them was to have.

Book 3 of 8 in the Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser Series. 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.

Fafhrd And The Grey Mouser: Book 3. Fritz Leiber. Knives and swords licked out of the fog mass. With never a cry the three police fell, their black tunics glistening with a fluid that showed red only on their sallow slack limbs

Fafhrd And The Grey Mouser: Book 3. With never a cry the three police fell, their black tunics glistening with a fluid that showed red only on their sallow slack limbs. The fog mass thickened, as if it had fed instantly and richly on its victims. The four marchers became almost invisible from the outside, though from the inside they saw clearly enough. Far down the longest and most landward of the five alleyways, the Mouser saw by the palace-glimmer behind him the white mass coming, shooting questing tendrils before it, and cried gaily, Look, Fafhrd, we’ve company!

Neil Gaiman Presents: the third book in Fritz Leiber's classic sword-and-sorcery series. In Swords in the Mist, lean times in Lankhmar force brothers-in-arms Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser to part ways. Only after a joust of wits and swords do the friends join together again, stealing the ship the Black Treasurer and sailing round and through The Claws. Neil Gaiman Presents: the third book in Fritz Leiber's classic sword-and-sorcery series.

Swords in the Mist, book three in the Lankhmar series, thrusts our indentured, sword-swinging servants into the question of hate, its power, and its purpose. Luckily, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser don’t always believe in love. When Lankhmar gets too gritty, our travelers take to their other, less harsh mistress, the sea. But the sea can play tricks.

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.

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.

Oldies but goodies! Highly recommended.

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

It is definitely not my favorite of Leiber's Lankhmar series. I didn't care much for the world-swapping. I like my fantasy to stay fantasy, and my historical fiction to stay historical fiction. I really didn't like the crossover, and even less that this was a novellette length treatment of it that took so long to unwind. To me, the meat and potatoes of Fafhrd and Grey Mouser is the short-story length exploits. Involved enough to be engaging, but quickly resolved enough to be ready to move on to the next adventure. I would say this book would have been three stars if not for the incredibly enjoyable "Lean Times in Lankhmar", easily the best of the lot. I will always be a Fritz Leiber fan, but this one definitely would land near the bottom of the list. Still very readable, but not as amazing as Swords Against Death or Swords and Deviltry.

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.

Don,t really want to review each book of this series. Just that I loved these stories as a kid, and love them now as adult.
Dive in and enjoy this universe and two of the best scoundrels you could ever hope to meet.
Typical Lankhmar adventures and characters. Lots of fun and a great read. Classic fantasy with great characters and plot development.
