Read full description of the books:
Fafhrd was a huge, full-bearded barbarian from the Northlands. His weapon—a broadsword. The Gray Mouser was a small, nimble man dressed all in gray. He carried both a rapier and a dirk.
In Lankhmar they were considered brawlers, cutpurses, rogues...and the best fighting-men in all of Nehwon. For which reason Overlord Glipkerio Kristomerces hired them to guard an important shipment to a neighboring monarch.
For once in their lifetimes of adventuring, our heroes looked forward to an easy time—until the Mingols, a two-headed dragon, and an army of miniature warriors appeared to make things interesting.

Read information about the authorFritz Reuter Leiber, Jr. was one of the more interesting of the young writers who came into HP Lovecraft's orbit, and some of his best early short fiction is horror rather than sf or fantasy. He found his mature voice early in the first of the sword-and-sorcery adventures featuring the large sensitive barbarian Fafhrd and the small street-smart-ish Gray Mouser; he returned to this series at various points in his career, using it sometimes for farce and sometimes for gloomy mood pieces--The Swords of Lankhmar is perhaps the best single volume of their adventures. Leiber's science fiction includes the planet-smashing The Wanderer in which a large cast mostly survive flood, fire, and the sexual attentions of feline aliens, and the satirical A Spectre is Haunting Texas in which a gangling, exo-skeleton-clad actor from the Moon leads a revolution and finds his true love. Leiber's late short fiction, and the fine horror novel Our Lady of Darkness, combine autobiographical issues like his struggle with depression and alcoholism with meditations on the emotional content of the fantastic genres. Leiber's capacity for endless self-reinvention and productive self-examination kept him, until his death, one of the most modern of his sf generation.
