Mines Of Behemoth has Nifft and his pal Barnar decending into the titular mines on a mission to gather a liquid from giant insects. Naturally, once at work, they find further trouble to get into by descending into Hell itself. Such close proximity to Hell leads to subtle changes in their personalities. To fans of Nifft ( . anybody who has ever read one of his adventures) this book is a must read. At least two or three times. If there is one thing Michael Shea is horribly guilty of, it's not writing enough! His stories are far too few. As I am reading one of his works, I frequently look with dread at the constantly shrinking number of pages.
Mines of Behemoth book. Michael Shea totally understood the spirit of sword and sorcery unlike any other modern author.

When coming up with this insane shit, he must have had smoke coming out of his ears as he furiously wrote it down in blood.

Nifft the Lean and his companion-in-arms, Barnar Hammer-Hand, were often lucky. This is the question I ask myself. While Shea's character Nifft adventures in a Sci-Fi/Fantasy world, I would really characterize it as horror. And some of the best horror I have ever read. Now, when Shea tries to write pure horror, it IS the best I have ever read (Fat Face, I Said The Fly).
III. If we are still to manage deeds that shine, We must be up and doing them. I've heard Behemoth workers nurse or feed in some way at the flanks of the Queen, but I have also heard that same notion mocked as myth. It smacks of myth to me," Barnar said.
