It was hard to put my finger on at first but reading these in seuence it becomes obvious that something has changed with the writing of the fourth Fafhrd and Gray mouser anthology Maybe the thing that s changed is after all it s less of an anthology This time around it feels like the stories have been written in order and are meant to follow one another The bulk of the book is taken up by two longer pieces and the last especially seems to be preparing the writer and his audience for the Nehwon novel that s to come not so much thematically but in the way that it focuses as much on other characters as it does on our two heroes and for the first time without really diminishing them much they ve become rather subservient to the settingIn brief the last story The Lords of uarmall is fantastic and absolutely one of the best things in the canon of Fafhrd and Mouser However I have to be blunt and say that while it was still an enjoyable reading experience I didn t like the rest of the book uite as muchWe begin with In the Witch s Tentt essentially a short introductory story with a strong vein of humour describing how Fafhrd persuades his companion that before they embark on their next great uest they should consult the oracular powers of a local witch in some drab northern town I thought Mouser s heckling of the witch and her trance was pretty funny as was the brief hints that kids like to haul off the tents of witch s and boil them so they can get high off the fumes that have seeped into the skin from all the years of fore and spell casting In short order everything s overturned and our notorious twain are once again on the run from a bunch of bravos out for their blood It s familiar territory in other words And their uest takes them to the mountains of Fafhrd s homeland andStardock I m uite torn about this one The first half is gorgeously written I don t know if Leiber had any experience in mountain climbing but I sure felt that he must have after reading this The descriptions of the towering forbidding mountain vistas just about set my brain on fire as did the glorious interaction between the two protagonists Fafhrd unrepentently full of awe and near worship of his natural surroundings Mouser just as much so but completely doggedly and ah that s just so fucking Mouser isn t it unwilling to admit it I feel like Leiber knows these people so well by this point that they practically write themselves and in this case the ease with which the characterisation flows from the text is admirable and they never cease to be a joy to be around even Mouser with his occasional arsehole tendencies So the two of them struggle and beat their way to the top of the great mount Stardock where the gods built models of stars to be launched into space They must face some formidable obstacles along the way including poisonous snow serpents covered in fur Oh and they travel with a cat and it s adorable But here they go with the concupiscent fantasies again and what do you know They get to the top of this impossibly great mountain and walk right into a Star Trek TOS episode It sure seems that way Stardock is populated by a race of invisible near immortals Their race is dying out and their great monarch wants to capture the seed of mighty warriors to fertilise their women His daughters though ahve other ideas much agreeable to Fafhrd and Mouser while their brother thinks this is some kind of heresy Didn t this happen to Captain Kirk at some point I m probably conflating two episodes in my head but I swear there s one that s almost like this In any case Fafhrd and Mouser get an amusing night of pleasure out of it and are then cast out into the snow with a loot of promised treasure all of which of course is invisible Not much is made of the idea of invisible immortals and how they could basically enslave or wipe out everyone else if they wanted to Basically the great story of man VS the Invisibles has yet to be written Fafhrd and Mouser s mortal rivals are conveniently done away with and we never do find out what if anything happens to the evil brother The story is rather slow in pacing yet still seems rushed in key areas in this particular case I think the destination should have been given eual importance to the journey I must add though that despite my ambivalence toward Stardock the level of self awareness in the writing is still really high and that means that any absurdities in the text are something Leiber is very conscious of and uses for the purpose of amusing his audienceThe Two Best Thieves in Lankhmar are not Fafhrd and the Gray mouser in case you wondered They re two women who get the best of our heroes in this short rather perfunctory story It s a silly one not nearly up to the standard of Lean Times in Lankhmar which is probably the tale I could most relate this one to Fafhrd and Mouser are growing distant from one another at the outset and it s sad this time They want to pawn off their invisible jewels at a high price but there s the obvious problem that noone can see them Mouser s solution is to sell them to a blind guy Fafhrd has been promised a night in the sack with a beautiful woman who wants to buy them and bed him They meet at a bar and make fun of each other for a while then shove off to perform their separate schemes When they meet again things are a little sober and their respective I told you so moments are soured by the fact that things didn t go so well for either of them Well what d you expect By this point I think that because they are smart they especially are having to admit that they ve lost their touch a bitBut now we come to the final most epic length story and if anything it s the reason to have this book because it s simply great and does really make up for any shortcomings that can admittedly be found in the previous work By the kind of mad coincidence that seems to often direct the lives of these two both Mouser and Fafhrd have ended up in the underground kingdom of uarmall a place that s been hinted darkly at throughout all the preceding books They each become the champion of rival brothers who have been or less set against each other by their wizard father the ruler of uarmall I was electrified by the depiction of the place and especially of uarmal the great long lived patron of uarmall himself The atmosphere almost made me think of Gormenghast but with a lot death and torture There are lovingly rendered descriptions of truly grotesue people and i do mean grotesue on both a physical and mental plane There are weird courting customs sorcerous battles pustulent plagues a history of the community as told by the King of the Cockroaches eerie slaves and the taste of mushrooms is in everything Don t think it s all dour grimness though there are at least half a dozen laugh out loud passages and the greatest punch the air moment of all is when Fafhrd and Mouser finally meet after being basically unaware of each other for the first 45 of the story and stage a mock duel The only real drawbacks I can see in this marvelous story are the women are pathetic which doesn t really bother me much possibly because I m a man but maybe also because the situations surrounding the three female characters in this piece are exploited for maximum humour potential and uarmal though great to read about seems a rather terrible place and a part of me really wanted to see it wiped off the face of the earth or Nehwon permanently While Fafhrd and mouser ride off into the sunset each with a girl on his saddle and better yet they re fast friends again it does feel that the status uo is maintained in uarmall and things will carry on as they have for hundreds of years Sometimes though that s the way with these stories While Leiber succeeds in making us love his heroes he also shatters the concept of heroism These guys are frustrating and oft frustrated and usually they re happy to just get out with their skins intact and hopefully with a nice prize of some kind Mouser is eminently practical and sensible Fafhrd has an iron clad sense of both justice and romanticism They re both formidable swordsmen But these things are seldom enough to shatter kingdoms or break age old traditionsIf you ve made it this far and enjoyed yourself you simply will have to read this I mean the last story is incredible and the rest are puerile fun dashed with a helping of beauty at least in the case of Stardock And you should read the next book too I continued all the way to the end of the series and I have no regrets but even I have to admit that things start to get very silly though leiber never completely loses his touch I couldn t really give this than three stars because the first half just isn t eual to The Lords of uarmall and is probably a bit below most of the earlier stories as well On the strength of uarmall though I m still wondering if I should bump up the rating a star
