Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser

I can remember, as a teenager trying to amass a collection of good fantasy and science fiction, stumbling upon old copies of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser paperbacks in my favorite trading book store.

I always liked these stories by Fritz Leiber. Fafhrd, a barbarian similar in some ways to Conan with a little less Arnold; Gray Mouser, a swave thief who can best be compared with a sober Jack Sparrow. The two have numerous adventures scamming, outwitting and outfighting various evil wizards and corrupt thieve's guilds.

Today I stumbled upon a trade paperback, collecting the stories illustrated over 10 years ago by Dark Horse Comics. Woo-hoo!
