5.0 out of 5 stars Nifft rocks
Great fantasy novel that borrows from and adds to the imagination of Jack Vance. After Vance, Shea is my favourite fantasy author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short stories.
If you like the Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser stories by Fritz Leiber, you may like this. I do not, and did not. It should also be said that this is not like Vance, whom I do...

2.0 out of 5 stars blood & guts.., 15 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nifft the Lean (Panther Books) (Paperback)
I bought this solely because I was told it was in the style of Jack Vance [see his wikipedia entry] but in fact it is utterly, totally different.

I did plough through it but I would not recommend it. It is a very early work by Michael Shea, or at least it reads as if it is. A Quest For Simbalis, which includes Cugel himself (by permission) is somewhat better, if only a pale imitation. Still, fanatical Vance fans (like me :-) should read Simbalis.
