Witty, gripping and urbane, Fritz Leiber s Lankhmar books are among the best loved of all modern fantasies
After their legendary adventures, and notorious mishaps, in the northern wastes of Newhon and beyond, Fafhrd, the giant barbarian warrior, and his companion, master-thief and expert swordsman, the Gray Mouser, return to Lankhmar, seeking the easy life. But that great fog-shrouded city is being attacked by a two-headed dragon and a horde of strange invaders. Finally, in the last of their adventures, Fafhrd sails through the clouds and the Mouser goes to sea before we bid a final farewell to Lankhmar.
