The second book in the Complete Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser series. Ten wonderful stories, produced over a thirty-year period, including five classic novelettes. Leiber provides both a Foreward and an Author's Introduction. In the annals of heroic fantasy this one epic series stands head and shoulders above the rest, spanning sixty years in the telling. It has captivated fans ever since Fritz Leiber’s first tale of the duo appeared in the August, 1939 issue of Unknown. Second of eight books; the first is sold out.

The story of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser is among the most enduring in modern fantasy, and Centipede Press is releasing what will be the definitive eight-volume set comprising not only all of the stories by Fritz Leiber (and his friend Harry Fischer), but also the brilliant epilogue to the series, Swords Against the Shadowland by Robin Wayne Bailey.

With this volume what really sets the tone for the entire series is that we learn much more about the duo’s supernatural mentors, Sheelba of the Eyeless Face and Ningauble of the Seven Eyes. This book features an introduction by Steve Rasnic Tem and artwork by Dominick Saponaro. It features five interior illustrations, a full-color frontispiece, full color wraparound dustjacket, and custom illustrated endpapers. The book includes all of the stories that make up Swords Against Death along with Fritz Leiber’s introduction to Bazaar of the Bizarre, some movie notes by Leiber, and a rare bonus essay, “Lankhmar and Lands Around.”
