A must for any collection,
This review is from: The First Book of Lankhmar (FANTASY MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
Fritz Leiber's Lankhmar books are in my opinion among the best fantasy ever written. Although the series gets off to a traditional and slow start, things soon pick up. By the end of Ill Met In Lankhmar you'll be hooked. This is a tale that completely subverts your expectations pulling the fantasy, which is often light in tone due to the banter between the splendidly named Grey Mouser and Fafhrd, into a darker area.
Read and enjoy - These are great romps, full of ale and adventure, that never fall fowl of the "men with big muscles hitting monsters and rescuing pneumatic amazons" trappings that some pulp fantasy has....
