About this title

Synopsis:

Leiber returns triumphantly to the imaginary land of Newhon, and to the adventures of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, in what is surely the climax of their marvelous careers. This volume contains a short story, a novelette, a novella, and a complete novel, The Mouser Goes Below, making it the largest volume in the series. It is also the first to be released in hardcover. The rest were paperback originals in the 1960s and 1970s - and all are still in print, with between three and four million copies of the series sold. "Even though the world continues to reel with war, hunger, greed, and ineptitude, it remains the Best of All Worlds, because Fritz Leiber continues to write. After too long a wait, the master storyteller of us all returns with a huge, anecdotal adventure in the magic-drenched lives of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. Glowing imagination melds with gorgeous language to make this one of Leiber's very best ... which is a better best than this poor world usually has to offer. Leiber's back: rejoice!" -- Harlan Ellison

From Publishers Weekly:

"Leiber's first published story in 1939 began the Fafhrd and Graynnouncements has Grey/i don't know/we have this from the review/which the house supplied/pk Mouser series of sword and sorcery tales that concludes with the four entries in this volume. One of the great works of fantasy in this century, the sequence is unequaled in its ironic wit, mordant romanticism and baroque invention, as well as a range of tone and affect not usually associated with the genre," lauded PW.
