First published in 1968 by Ace as a Paperback

The fourth of the Swords series (In the Lankhmar chronology). This contains the only part of the Fafhrd and Gray Mouser series not to be written by Leiber, 10,000 words of The Lords of Quarmall by Harry Fischer around 1936.

The Two Best Thieves in Lankhmar is a humourous look at the male dominated world of Heroic Fantasy.

Stardock is a great story, with both adventure, humour and a touch of romance.  The moment when we realise the mountain is alive is one of those times of awe and wonder in the series, and one of my favorite moments.

It also contains a diagram of Stardock by Jeff Jones.

Contains the following short stories (listed in alphabetical order)

In the Witch's Tent


The Lords of Quarmall

The Two Best Thieves in Lankhmar
