Elric is a great story. Good and Evil are relative and you end up identifying with a great anti-hero.

Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser are some really good early fantasy. Fafhrd is a broadsword weilding barbarian and Mouser is a lighting quick rogue with a mean double weild. Good stuff.

It's the pacing mate.... PACING!!!
