Swords and Ice Magic  - Fritz Leiber Another short book in the Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser series. Leiber's writing is as always superb. I continue getting amazed by the way he describes scenery or action, feelings and thoughts, characters and just about anything. The plot in this one felt a bit weaker than in the first books. Maybe I'm getting used to some motifs reappearig more often in every book or maybe it's just that I generally dislike sea-stuff and ships and sailing which feature rather prominently in this book.
I'd say 3 to 3.5 stars out of 5.
