Thieves' World (Thieves' World (original novels) #1) - Robert Asprin 6.78   27

Edited by Robert Lynn Asprin. Cover art by Gary Ruddell. Cover: Hakiem in the bazaar, "Kittycat," and a Hell Hound.

They all play the part of hero, they are all-powerful on a stage that is ruled by the one that you talk to – or the one you believe...

Thieves' World is what resulted when the world's top science-fiction and fantasy writers got together to create the amazing new world of Sanctuary, where you mix and mingle with Lythal the Star-browed: his magic is questionable, his sword-play is not. Jubal: ex-gladiator and slave, now a respected citizen (he made his money selling slaves). One Thumb: the crooked bartender at the Vulgar Unicorn... and even more fantastic characters!

Lynn Abbey, Poul Anderson, Robert Asprin, John Brunner, Joe Haldeman and Andrew J Offutt have dreamed up a world of wonders – a fabulous reading adventure!
