Summary
Smoke Ghost places a classic ghost story in a modern urban setting, while the dread in Coming Attraction reflects the uneasiness of the cold war. The powerful Gonna Roll the Bones explores mans compulsion toward self-destruction, while a different archetype is revealed in The Girl with the Hungry Eyes, which reveals the vampiric seduction of modern consumerism. There are three tales of adventurous rogues Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, including the Nebula Awardwinning Ill Met in Lankhmar, in which youthful derring-do leads to heart-wrenching tragedy
