Join the renowned barbarian and thief in this sword-and-sorcery adventure from a Grand Master of Science Fiction and Fantasy.   While The Lord of the Rings took the world by storm, Fritz Leiber's fantastic but thoroughly flawed antiheroes, Fafhrd and Gray Mouser, adventured and stumbled deep within the caves of Inner Earth as well. They wondered and wandered to the edges of the Outer Sea, across the Land of Nehwon, and throughout every nook and cranny of gothic Lankhmar, Nehwon's grandest and most mystically corrupt city. Lankhmar, is Leiber's fully realized, vivid incarnation of urban decay and civilization's corroding effect on the human psyche. Fafhrd and Mouse are not innocents; their world is no land of honor and righteousness. It is a world of human complexities and violent action, of discovery and mystery, of swords and sorcery.   Swords Against Death, the second volume in the Lankhmar series, finds Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser beginning their real journey. Their hearts altered by the loss of first true love, they embark on a long and winding path of drunken debauchery and womanizing until crossing paths with two cross wizards, Sheelba of the Eyeless Face and Ningauble of the Seven Eyes. A most violent of clashes ensues. Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser descend into Thieves House to discover the exacting skill of the united backstabbing Thieves of Lankhmar and their rival guild, the Slayer's Brotherhood, the city's unionized killers. They would wander along the Bleak Shore to a howling tower to show how fear is not the product of murder but the cause. Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser must resume their plundering and drunken debauchery until once again darkness had taken the balance for its favor and then a change would come.   These are just a few of the encounters our swindling swordsmen will willingly endure in ridding their hearts of their first true loves. But did they know it would make them indentured swordsman servants to their former foes, the formidable Sheelba and Ningauble? … (mais)

Perhaps the prose flowed better than in the first book, or perhaps I'm getting used to the style, but I read it more fluidly. Sword & Sorcery stories, some of them very good. Most of the time it's not the two heroes who dominate the story, but the magical forces that abound in their word, making it a bit less enjoyable for me, since I prefer more rational plots. ( )

Entertaining enough.
Obviously the history behind them counts for a lot, and if they were read one by one in the magazines they originally appeared in then it wouldn't matter so much that there's not a lot of difference between any of the stories. ( )

Tirelessly entertaining

This is perhaps one of my most favorite books, for several reasons. First, it is well written, without a lot of plot errors like a majority of modern fiction. Second, it is a collection of shorter tales, so you can enjoy one or more tales according to the amount of time you have to read. Third, they are not just entertaining tales of adventure, but contain just the right amount of wry humor, but not silly in plot or execution. Lastly, they're eminently re-readable, a rare thing in my experience ( )

Tras los penosos acontecimientos relatados en Espadas y demonios (primer volumen de la serie, publicado en esta misma colección), en Espadas contra la muerte reencontramos a nuestros aventureros, quienes poco a poco se van convirtiendo en seres entrañables para nosotros, enfrentados a una vida vacía sin la compañía de sus amadas... El dolor es grande y Lankhmar encierra recuerdos amargos tras sus muros, pero Fafhrd y el Ratonero Gris no conseguirán resistir la atracción de la civilización decadente y, después de múltiples vagabundeos —en los que nunca, nunca, nunca podremos encontrarlos trabajando como mercenarios—, acabarán siempre e inevitablemente volviendo a frecuentar sus tabernas y retorcidos callejones.

Arguably the author & universe which - Tolkien excepted - most influenced Gary Gygax & his celebrated RPG, Dungeons & Dragons. Swords & Sorcery (Leiber invented the term), thieves guilds, the serial "crawling" of invariably grimy stone edifices... & perhaps above all the endlessly fertile duet synergy between the archetypes of Fafhrd & Gray Mouser (Fighter & Thief/Rogue, Strength & Dexterity builds). Note that developing the Thief class for D&D was not originally Gygax's own idea - but being a committed Leiber fan he quickly seized on it, giving it its extraordinary leverage.

So robust has this specific one-two dynamic proved, that it remains a staple axis of countless more recent games both tabletop & video, be they ever so different in theme or scope.

Several of the stories themselves, however, are a slightly ponderous read now, both in prose & content. ( )

"Sept prêtres noirs" et "Le bazar du bizarre" doivent être dédiés à deux merveilleux rédacteurs. ea Mahaffy et Cele Laly qui les ont inspirés. Mais d'autres rédacteurs m'ont également apportés une aide précieuse : feu le grand John W. Campbell Jr., et les très attentionnés Donald A. Wollheim et Edward L. Fermann. Ainsi que quantité d'autres personnes envers qui je me sens redevable.
