From the Grand Master of Science Fiction, the fifth book in a series that stands as "one of the great works of fantasy in this century" (Publishers Weekly). The Swords of Lankhmar finds the city characteristically plagued by rats. Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser are in the employ of Glipkerio, the overlord, to guard a grain ship on its journey. Along the way, the rats onboard stage a rebellion and threaten to take the ship until a two-headed sea monster saves the day. If only there were two-headed sea monsters everywhere, Lankhmar would be safe, too. Alas, upon returning to the city, the two discover that Lankhmar is controlled by rats. It is a city known for its thieves and swine, but even the city's muddiest bottom feeders have never seen pillaging and plundering like this. And only the sorcerers Sheelba of the Eyeless Face and Ningauble of the Seven Eyes can scare this scourge. Mouser must shrink into the rat's world and Fafhrd must unleash the feared feline War Cats. Then the fun really begins.    Before The Lord of the Rings took the world by storm, Leiber's fantastic but thoroughly flawed antiheroes, Fafhrd and Gray Mouser, adventured deep within the caves of Inner Earth, albeit a different one. 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.   Drawing on themes from Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, and H. P. Lovecraft, master manipulator Fritz Leiber is a worldwide legend within the fantasy genre and actually coined the term Sword and Sorcery that describes the subgenre he helped create. … (mais)

Unusually inventive--hard to believe this is a product of decades long past, rather than the latest outing from a Matthew Hughes or Scott Lynch. I have been reading in internal chronological order, and this, the only true novel, is a fitting climax to the series (of course, there are more stories to go--may they provide equally fitting denouement).

I was the tiniest bit worried that Leiber might not be able to maintain a novel's length worth of interest, especially since some of his novelette-sized tales dragged a bit. But the author of Conjure Wife (one of my favourites) has risen to the occasion and I feel a bit silly for doubting him.

The protagonists are male, but the prominent female characters are scarcely helpless maidens--in fact, I've rarely seen such a diversity of female characters, though each is (to borrow an anime term) a bit fan-service, two of them being prominently naked at all times. That's the only aspect of this that carries a hint of the times with it--otherwise this is a fresh, entertaining romp of a novel.

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). I feel a lot of readers automatically render any book they enjoy 5, but I grade on a curve! ( )

Another great addition to the genre and this particular series. The Swords of Lankhmar offers a different twist in the sense that this is a full-fledged novel with a long story that runs through the totality of the book. Fafhrd and the Gay Mouser are fighting off a menacing army that threatens the very freedom and existence of their beloved city. It is a dark and epic tale full of passion, witty situations, bigger than life characters and the strangeness that is one of the characteristic of the series. It is a strong, deep and entertaining read. ( )

The only Fafhrd and Mouser novel, and quite competent in that genre. the light hearted swashbuckling seems a little forced at times, but the whole thing works well. Lankhmar is besieged, and only a forlorn hope of heroes can save it. Failing that, employ the Grey Mouser and his Nordic companion. A serious amount of undercover work is involved. Set side an evening, and enjoy it. ( )

When your city is overrun with Rats, the obvious plan is to hire the Mouser and Fafhrd to clear up your problem. But you know, that is perhaps not the best plan! This is the last of the short story collections but is very good for those who like this happy fantasy pair! ( )

Fafhrd und der Gray Mouser sind zurück in Lankhmar - die Stadt wird von Ratten bedroht. Wie bei Warhammer die Skaven: ich liebe sie! Die Geschichte ist ausnehmend witzig.

Den sechsten Teil der Serie muss ich mir ein wenig aufheben... ( )

"I see we're expected," the small man said, continuing to stroll toward the large open gate in the long, high, ancient wall. As if by chance, his hand brushed the hilt of his long, slim rapier.
