Shelves: fantasy , short-story-collections , male-lead 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.

The four stories three novellas and one vignette within describe the Leiber is one of the fathers of sword and sorcery fiction, and it shows. The four stories three novellas and one vignette within describe the adventures of Fafhrd, a giant barbarian from the frozen wastes, and the Gray Mouser, a youth who has apprenticed to a hedge-wizard.

These are the tales that influenced the greats of fantasy. Then Leiber would suddenly twist it, and the frustration, the rage, and the fear in his characters would come into play. Leiber does, perhaps, show his age in these stories, both personally and culturally. Woman have no likeable roles, playing controlling mother-witch, junior controlling fiance-witch, Lady Macbeth, and Ophelia.

Still, there is something of sophistication in their character as Leiber gets inside their emotional landscape to explain their actions, or lack of.

His parents were both Shakespearean actors, and a reoccurring theme through his writing was acting and the life of actors. A note for Pratchett fans out there: Lankhmar was apparently an indirect inspiration for Ankh-Morpork and Pratchett has two characters in the first Discworld based on Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.

A solid three and a half stars.
