Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most influential and critically acclaimed fantasy writers of all time, Fritz Leiber pioneered the sword-and-sorcery genre!

In the ancient city of Lankhmar, two men forge a friendship in battle. The red-haired barbarian Fafhrd left the snowy reaches of Nehwon looking for a new life while the Gray Mouser, apprentice magician, fled after finding his master dead. These bawdy brothers-in-arms cement a friendship that leads them through the wilds of Nehwon facing thieves, wizards, princesses, and the depths of their desires and fears.

Superb writing and brilliant, believable characterizations highlight the first entry in Leiber's seminal series.

Review:

"One of the great works of fantasy in this century...unequaled in its ironic wit, mordant romanticism and baroque invention, as well as a range of tone and affect not usually associated with the genre..." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Fritz Leiber shares the stage with the likes of J. R. R. Tolkien, Robert E. Howard, and C. S. Lewis as a founding master of the fantasy genre.

Dark Horse Comics will be collecting the hard-to-find Lankhmar comics adaptations, Fahfrd and the Gray Mouser, written by Howard Chaykin with art by Mike Mignola (Hellboy)! Dark Horse Entertainment is developing the property as a major motion picture.
