Fritz Leiber's Swords and Deviltry is $1.99 at Amazon. Swords and Deviltry is the first collection of Fafhrd and Gray Mouser stories.

Leiber was a pulp master and Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser should be more widely known. Unlike their pulp brother, Conan, they were human and had failings. The stories usually had a dash of humor to them.

I will say this first collection starts slow. I remember not caring much for the individual stories The Snow Women or The Unholy Grail. The book really takes off when the characters meet in Ill Met in Lankhmar.

OTOH, Ray Bradbury's The pedestrian was included in one of my high school English textbooks (early 1960s). I had never heard of him at that time; it was one of the best introductions provided in that course.

Direct link to dramatic reading of Ray Bradbury's short story, "The Pedestrian":

These seem to go on sale frequently if you keep a watch on them. I've gotten five of the seven books over the past couple of months.

Thanks. I have them on my watchlist.

In paper I have the four book White Wolf Lankhmar collections with the Mike Mignola artwork. I wish that had been licensed for these. His style fits the stories very well (probably because I first became familiar with Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser from the Epic miniseries by Mignola and Chaykin.)
