Swords Against the Shadowland

Swords Against the Shadowland

(The eighth book in the Fafhrd and Gray Mouser series)
A novel by

The Legacy of Fritz Leiber Lives - Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser are Back!

Lankhmar, an ancient and decadent city of magic, where witches and sorcerers scheme, where gods and ghosts walk the streets and shadow-haunted alleys, where violence and death dance together like lovers in the darkness. Lankhmar - a city of plague!

Years ago, two rogues bound together by friendship and a shared destiny neither understood met in Lankhmar. Living by their swords, their wits and their daring, they sought adventure and love. Adventure they found, but love - they lost. In despair, they left the city, vowing never to return.

Yet vows are made to be broken. Once again, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser are drawn back to Lankhmar and quickly ensnared in its wizard-games as one jealous mage turns on his rivals and unleashes a black force not even he can control, a power that threatens the city itself.

Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, two of the greatest and most beloved characters in fantasy literature, return in this novel-length adventure by Nebula Award nominated author Robin Wayne Bailey. SWORDS AGAINST THE SHADOWLAND, authorized by series creator Fritz Leiber, is a direct sequel to Leiber's famous story, "Ill-Met in Lankhmar!"

Named one of the six best fantasy novels of 1998 by the Science Fiction Chronicle.
