Teaser Tuesday: “The Adventures of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser”

This week (and probably next week …) I’m reading The Adventures of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, by Fritz Leiber, a “box set” (insofar as anything on an eReader is a “box set”) comprising Swords and Deviltry, Swords Against Death, and Swords in the Mist.

Teaser Tuesday 12/26/2017: “Six-Gun Snow White”

Teaser Tuesday 11/21/2017: “The Towers of Sunset”

This week I’m reading The Towers of Sunset, by L.E.
