Series: Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser (#6)
Another short book in the Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser series. Leiber's writing is as always superb. I continue getting amazed by the way he describes scenery or action, feelings and thoughts, characters and just about anything. The plot in this one felt a bit weaker than in the first books. Maybe I'm...
What can one say? It's Fafhrd & Grey Mouser. Always liked the first story, "The Sadness of the Executioner."
Leiber was in his late sixties when he wrote these stories and not surprisingly he had his heroes considering retiring from adventuring. It is to Leiber's credit that he let his characters age from young men to older men during the series rather than leaving them frozen in everlasting youth.
