The Wikipedia page bibliography list isn't super easy to follow. Anyone know if the two Kindle volumes has everything I need to read in the series?


    Two Sought Adventure (1958). Collection of six short stories. Later expanded and retitled as Swords Against Death.
    Swords and Deviltry (1970). Collection of 3 short stories.
    Swords Against Death (1970). Collection of 10 short stories; an expanded edition of Two Sought Adventure
    Swords in the Mist (1968). Collection of 6 short stories.
    Swords Against Wizardry (1968). Collection of 4 short stories.
    The Swords of Lankhmar (1968). Expanded from "Scylla's Daughter" in Fantastic, 1963.
    Swords and Ice Magic (1977). Collection of 8 short stories. (Though see Rime Isle below.)
    The Knight and Knave of Swords (1988). Collection of 4 short stories. Retitled Farewell to Lankhmar (2000, UK).
    I will direct this question to Seth

    Hail, friend!!

    So the 'Swords' series was originally a collection of short stories. The best way to read them is in omnibus format in which the stories are assembled in chronological order.
    The first of these is Swords & Deviltry. If you're a quick read or completionist you can also get a set of the first three books!

    I hope that helps you, and happy reading.

    Thanks, that is helpful. I like to start a series at the beginning usually and it looks like Amazon has a two sets of digital books that has everything in the series. I do prefer paper books over digital so I might scour the interwebs for used copies.

    After listening to just over half of the podcasts I feel inspired to work in Dromed again. I'll probably regret it shortly.

    I got copies of all the "Fafhrd and Gray Mouser" collections in the early 2000's and read them regularly. The stories themselves were written over the span of 50 years or so by Lieber. For these collections, he rearranged the order of the stories and added a few new ones to fill in gaps so that they appear to tell the story of the two's careers chronologically.

    There is also a book written in '98 called "Swords Against the Shadowlands" which was written by Robin Wayne Bailey with Lieber's estate's blessing.

    I can't imagine that any fan of the Thief games would not enjoy these stories. They are not what I would consider standard swashbuckling fare. The stories are all very cerebral in nature.
