Although I have generally moved away from reading science fiction and fantasy, there are a few writers I never will abandon.

Fritz Lieber’s sword and sorcery series about the two rogues, Gray Mouser and Fafrhd (the latter whose names I continually misspell) have a special place in my heart.

Centipede Press, publishers of exquisite limited edition books, have started the process to publish eight (8) books collecting all the fiction with these two characters. The cost starts at $75 per book, which will set any collector back a pretty penny by the end of the venture.

The first book, Swords and Deviltry, contains the original tales, some poems, notes by Leiber, and the origin of the two characters. The wrap-around cover by Tom Kidd is unreal and gorgeous. Anyone who manages to own the entire set will guard them jealously. It even smells unique.
