In this week’s episode I’ll be discussing Swords in the Mist, Book 3 of the Fafhrd and Gray Mouser sword and sorcery tales by Fritz Leiber. The collection includes five short stories and one novella. In my mind the stand out tale is the short story, “Lean Times in Lankhmar.”
In this week’s episode I will be discussing the original version of Adept’s Gambit by Fritz Leiber. Adept’s Gambit is a sword & sorcery tale starring Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. The original manuscript which contains references to the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft has been unearthed and published by Arcane Wisdom Press, edited by S.T. Joshi. This new limited edition hardcover contains bonus features including annotations from S.T. Joshi, an introduction from Joshi and Lovecraft’s commentary on the original version of Adept’s Gambit.
