The Hugo and Nebula Award–winning series of swords and sorcery, featuring two unorthodox heroes, from a Grand Master of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Many decades before George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones, Grand Master Fritz Leiber ruled the sword-and-sorcery universe. These three short story collections chronicle the unconventional adventures of Leiber’s endearing antiheroes: barbarian Fafhrd and former wizard’s apprentice, the Gray Mouser. Swords and Deviltry: Fafhrd, a handsome barbarian of the Steppes, is seduced by a beautiful prostitute and her equally intoxicating city, while the Gray Mouser, a slum rat wizard-in-training, is tempted by the dark arts. The two men meet on a night of multiple thieveries and an enduring partnership is born. Swords Against Death: Rogue swordsmen and devoted companions Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser pursue ill-gotten fortunes within the confines of Lankhmar. They cross paths with two wizards, Sheelba of the Eyeless Face and Ningauble of the Seven Eyes, and a most violent clash ensues. Eventually, following further adventures, the two antiheroes end up as indentured swordsman servants to their former foes. Swords in the Mist: A cloud of concentrated hatred and lean times in Lankhmar compels Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser to temporarily depart the most corrupt metropolis in all of Nehwon as they seek adventure in the realm of the Sea-King—and on a different world entirely. This must-read collection of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser short stories features multiple Hugo and Nebula Award–nominated tales, and includes the acclaimed novella Ill Met in Lankhmar.

The books are cohesive and coherent, full of heart-to-heart exchanges between the author, his God, and the reader. By reading through them intently, you can build a loving relationship with the Lord. He is looking for true worshippers and those who worship Him must do so in spirit and in truth (John 4:20-24). You can withdraw constantly, consistently, and conspicuously every day on short and long retreats for spiritual progress in order to pray, read the Word of God, read books on the faith, meet God in Daily Dynamic Encounters with Him, and just relieve, relish, cherish and flourish in His presence. “Retreats for Spiritual Progress” demystifies retreats and makes them a possible, probable, and practical daily reality. You can have four or more retreats for spiritual progress every day without fail of just fifteen minutes each. You can have a 5-month retreat in seclusion like Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist (Luke 1:24). It could be 40 days like those of Moses, Elijah, and the Lord Jesus Christ. By diligently and earnestly going through this volume, you may resolve to become a person constantly in the presence of the Lord, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly. “The Way of Victorious Praying” details the ABCs of prayer and fasting and provides practical direction as to how to pray for yourself, your leaders, the saints, the church, the ministry, the work, church planting, and many more. It shows you how to pray daily, record your prayer points in a notebook, fill it up when the prayers are answered, and have convincing proof to show both friend and foe that we have a God who answers prayer.

Three love stories set against great American landscapes in an acclaimed series by a New York Times–bestselling author and “romance legend” (Publishers Weekly). With more than 300 million books sold, Janet Dailey is an icon of American fiction. In a romantic tour of the United States, the first lady of romance wrote fifty novels, one set in each state. The three enchanting installments of the Americana Series included in this collection tell heart-soaring tales of love and desire in Alabama, Alaska, and Arizona. Dangerous Masquerade: Having spent her life in her cousin’s shadow, shy secretary Laurie Evans steps into the spotlight. She bears a strong resemblance to her movie-star cousin, LaRaine, and agrees to masquerade as the spoiled actress on a trip to Alabama to meet LaRaine’s future in-laws. But when her cousin’s fiancé, Rian Montgomery, arrives unexpectedly, Laurie can’t help but desire the millionaire hotel magnate—and a dazzling romance that’s no charade. Northern Magic: Shannon Hayes is thrilled to reunite with her fiancé, Rick, in Anchorage, Alaska, after a long separation, but when she arrives he’s disappeared. Desperate to find him, Shannon asks Rick’s employer, Cody, for help, and soon his comforting, reliable presence makes her wonder if she’s giving her heart to the wrong man. Sonora Sundown: Lost in the desert, Brandy Ames is alone, frightened, and desperate for help. She’s relieved when she stumbles upon the campfire of drop-dead gorgeous cattle thief Jim Corbett.
