" I've read this in the omnibus Tales Of The Dying Earth. I feel like kicking Cugel's ass, for everywhere he comes, he leaves a path of destruction, death, ... has no respect for customs, profites from others' actions, and yet, one can't help feel to choose his side too when he's cornered. On the other hand, in the end you sort of get the message: what goes around, comes around. Or, don't seek personal revenge, because that is not going to end the circle or spiral. On the contrary, it might get worse. All in all, another nice read, though less exciting (and more nerve-wrecking) than "The Dying Earth", hence only 7/10. "
