    About Fritz Leiber Mervi Hämäläinen


    1. Fritz Reuter Leiber, Jr was one of the 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.

    1. This is the first volume in Fritz Leiber's classic fantasy saga, the adventures of Fafhrd and his friend and partner, The Grey Mouser, composed from the 40's through the 70's. The volumes are ordered chronologically by their position in the saga, not the date of their composition, and this volume features some of Leiber's most mature works. We meet the young Fafhrd--a barbarian of the northern wastes dominated by his mother, the great Snow Witch--who longs for the excitement and variety of civil [...]

    2. Leiber is one of the fathers of sword and sorcery fiction, and it shows. Reading these stories feels a little like sitting at the feet of an old, old storyteller while he reminisces about childhood heroes. There's a feel of both age and timelessness about these stories--tall, fur-clad barbarian and short swordsman-thief who can vanish in the shadows--this is like reading the origin myth for characters we've known for decades. The four stories (three novellas and one vignette) within describe the [...]

    3. Fritz Leiber is another of the early defining authors in fantasy, mostly because of the coining of the term 'Sword & Sorcery'. Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser is the tale of a companionship between a mountain tribe barbarian and a failed wizard's apprentice, and their journeys together in Lankhmar and the surrounding lands.Swords and Deviltry is the first book (actually first collection of short stories) in the series, and introduced the two protagonists with one origin story each, then ends with [...]

    6. ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.I must confess that I had some preconceived notions about Fritz Leiber’s work. Because he’s credited with coining the phrase “Sword & Sorcery,” and because I never hear women talking about his stories, I imagined that they appealed mainly to men who like to read stuff that has covers like these:[image error][image error][image error][image error]But, four factors made me decide to give Fritz Leiber a try: 1. I feel the need to be “educated” [...]

    7. Ah, sexism, we meet again. And in such an unexpected location: a pulp fantasy novel!I don't know what Leiber looked like, but I'm picturing that sickly-skinny kid from The New Guy. This book is every bit as embarrassing to read as Piers Anthony, although it has a slightly lower number of naked women per page. What it has to make up for this is SCREAMINGLY stereotypical and degrading female characters. Women fit conveniently into one of two boxes: (1) Old, jealous hags,(2) Young hotties who put o [...]

    8. This is the first book of the series which gave us term and fantasy sub-genre Sword and Sorcery. It consists of 3 novellas which talk about the background of the main characters, Fafhrd and Gray Mouser and their fateful meeting.The Snow Women. Fafhrd is a barbarian living in the lands of North where the harsh climate allows the survival of the strongest. This was the longest novella and also the most boring one. Not much happened except for Fafhrd's brooding and longing to see the civilized land [...]

    9. Though Leiber wasn't the first to write swords and sorcery adventures, the imagination, verve, and whimsy of his writing not only set him above his contemporaries, but have made him one of the most influential authors in epic mythological fiction. He is responsible for Thieves' Guilds and Wizard Scrolls, as well as numerous elements of characterization and tone. However, he didn't simply pluck these concepts from the waiting air. Like Howard, Leiber enriched his work with details from ancient ta [...]

    10. Before I say anything about this book specifically, I must flat-out state that Leiber's tales of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser are my favourite on-going fantasy series. I don't generally read huge, sprawling multi-volume sagas of anything, just because I can't imagine how a writer could possibly keep up interest or inspiration over thousands and thousands of pages for the same world or set of characters and maintain a consistent enough quality to make the undertaking a worthwhile experience for me.

    11. I picked this up in order to fill one of the gaps in my fantasy education. I kept seeing references to it everytime discussions turned towards sword and sorcery fantasy books. I can now add one more flag on the road mapping the transition from Poe to Howard, to Thieves World to [for example] Riyria.I'm glad I have finally got to know Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser - two spirited adventurers through highly magical and dangerous world of Newhon. This introductory collection of stories presents the her [...]

    12. Swords and Deviltry: The origin stories of Fafhrd and the Gray MouserOriginally posted at Fantasy LiteratureIf you want to read “sword & sorcery” tales, why not go back to the source? Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser series was first conceived in the 1930s and the first story “Two Sought Adventure” was published in 1939 in Unknown. For the next two decades he wrote additional stories but it was not until the 1960s that Leiber decided to organize and integrate the stories m [...]

    13. This book is the first in Leiber’s Fafhrd and Gray Mouser series. The book contains three origin stories: “The Snow Women” (Fafhrd), “The Unholy Grail” (Mouser), and “"Ill Met in Lankhmar" (initial meeting of the duo). The third story is the true gem here. “The Snow Women” is the weakest of the three. If you can make it through this one, you will enjoy the remainder of the book. Unfortunately, the story is about 110 pages long in my edition, approximately 45% of the book. Fafhrd [...]

    14. This book is like a trip back in time to the beginnings of the sword and sorcery era. Yes, the language is dated. Yes, the viewpoint is clearly outmoded and outdated in terms of male/female relations. But if you look at this book as a snapshot of history, it is exactly what it should be-a formative piece of writing that inspired generations of writers and is a subterranean root drawn on by many of our current fantasy authors knowingly or unwittingly.There is a degree of callousness in the collec [...]

    15. Not one, not two, but three, three, three! origin stories in one. First we see Fafhrd the northern barbarian, strangely fascinated by decadent civilization, up in his cold northern wastes; then we meet the Gray Mouser (well, "Mouse" at this point), wizard's apprentice with an undercurrent of darkness. Then finally, in Ill-Met in Lankhmar, they join forces for the first time, with unexpected and tragic consequences.This is kind of an odd one -- the stories were written as backstory long after Faf [...]

    16. 3.5 stars This novel collects the first of the Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser stories. The first two stories, The Snow Women and the Unholy Grail introduce us to Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser individually. While these are decent stories, the real magic is when the two meet for the first time in Ill Met In Lankhmar which is a superb story in the classic sword and sorcery meets buddy book genre. The last story is a 4.0 to 4.5 star story. The relative weakness of the first two stores is what brings the ov [...]

    17. Il mio primo incontro con Fritz Leiber.Spumeggiante e divertente, scanzonato e chiassoso, a tratti anche ricco di tensione e con scene da brividi. I due simpatici furfanti, Fafhrd e Mouser, sono una coppia molto meno scontata di quanto potrebbe sembrare a prima vista. Un certo tipo di fantasy ha tratto a piene mani da queste storie fantastiche. Assolutamente imperdibile per gli amanti del fantasy brillante e scanzonato, sì leggero eppure tutt'altro che banale. Se vi è piaciuto "La principessa [...]

    18. This was a big surprise! Old school fantasy at it`s best! I could understand why this has made quite a bunch of fans in the days.The stories are warm, rich in sentiments, with very vivid and colorful imagery, and have the potential to appeal the tastes of any avid fantasy reader.The characters are quite complex, nothing it`s so trivial about them, the writer really takes the time with them, we`ll see them grow from chapter to chapter.More action packed in the end, with some turn-ups around, conv [...]

    19. I was searching my audible library for the books I have not yet read (most are on an i-pod that died and I never got around to redownloading them) and found this one. Neil Gaiman read his introduction and commented on how this was one of the books that inspired him. He explained that it was the first of the fantasy sub-category of swords & sorcery and the first of Leiber's many books telling the tales of Fafrel and The Grey Mouser. I learned after listening to it that it is composed of three [...]

    20. Not a bad read. Nothing complicated. The story is pretty straight forward. The characters aren't that deep. You have your stereotypical Northern Barbarian(Fafhrd) hooking up with the wood elf type magic user (Mouser or Mouse). The setting is very Elder Scrolls/Skyrim-ish. I liked it.The story is only 200 odd pages so its a quick and light read. Some great slap sticky style humour. Especially when the two get drunk before embarking on a stealth mission. "Drink may slow a man's sword-arm and softe [...]

    21. Not entirely sure what I think of this one. I can give it a bit of latitude due to its era, etc, but it's ridiculously and stereotypically male oriented. There's a point where a seemingly spineless girl does something immensely brave and difficult -- I nearly cheered. But that's pretty short-lived. Otherwise, there's a bunch of stereotyped controlling women, and a bunch of violence. It's okay, with some lovely bits of prose and touches of humour, but. Eh. I know these books are classics so I'll [...]

    23. The only story i have read of Lieber before this collection was "Ill Met in Lankmar" in some fantasy masters short story collection.Reading these three first Fahred and Gray Mouser stories reminded why i like reading so much different fantasy stories. The stories in this collection are so imaginative,picturesque,witty and still have S&S hardcore feel. Made me think it was like reading Vance/Zelazny's Dying Earth/Amber if they were written in S&S subgenre. Leiber seems to have his own sty [...]

    24. Read this earlier this year and had forgotten about it until i saw a discussion about it on here today. I figured i should write a review giving my reasoning for such a low rating. First of all, i had heard about these books for years and was excited to finally get an omnibus edition with the first 3 or 4 books in the series.I found it uninspiring and very stereotypical overall. It is abundantly clear while reading it that it is created by the immature mind of college age boys. Leiber has said t [...]

    25. If you like low fantasy (less lofty and more gritty than, say, Tolkien) you'll probably love these classic stories of the two swordsmen and thieves, Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser. Really refreshing while at the same time fundamental.

    27. An excellent introduction to Lankhmar and its principal protagonists. I'm a sucker for great characters. In fact, a lot of the authors I read in the genre today have drawn inspiration from Leiber. My first introduction to Lankhmar wasn't through Leiber, though, it was through D&D when they introduced the setting in the 90s, so I'm happy to go back and walk my way through these books!Each of the books in the seven book series is a collection of 'short' stories (usually a handful or so). For S [...]

    28. You look at the Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser stories as a long list and realize that they are not collected according to order of publication. In particular the contents of this volume--the stories--were originally published in 1962 and 1970. The contents of Swords Against Death and the three volumes that follow all antedate these works, for the most part. So at some point, Leiber went back and created origin stories for his heroes. I'm not sure why. If they call for any sort of origin story, it i [...]

    29. I wanted to read this series ever since I have heard George RR Martin, and Patrick Rothfuss both point to Leiber as an influence. It is easy to see the similarity between Leiber's protagonists Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser and Dunk/Egg & Brienne/Pod. This first book tell the origins of Fafhrd & Gray Mousers before their first chance meeting in the last story. It has everthing I like in a story. Fafhrd is a bit of a rouge, while the mouser is a bit of a sneak thief. Their morals are a bit gr [...]

    30. Leiber is a fine writer and there is certainly music in his prose. I don't think he's as good a storyteller as Robert E. Howard, and at times his "tongue-in-cheek" approach is a bit aggravating to me. But he can tell a good story and the characters and the world are well-drawn and certainly imaginative.
