The Saga of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser

Top Fantasy Series, June 2012

A tall northern barbarian and a diminutive thief combine to make one of the most intriguing duos of fantasy. Set in the world of Nehwon, generally within the city of Lankhmar, Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser brawl, feast, drink, gamble, and thieve their way through outlandish adventures. Along the way they will grow and develop, as Leiber was not content for them to remain simple rogues. Originally conceived and written in the 1930's, with a tip of the hat, style-wise, to Robert E. Howard and Clark Ashton Smith, Leiber's two seminal protagonists are absolutely vital to the history of the genre, and their like has never been seen since.
