''Thieves' World'' is a dark urban fantasy SharedUniverse created by Creator/RobertAsprin in 1978 and mostly focused on the city of Sanctuary. It drew in authors like Creator/PoulAnderson, Creator/JohnBrunner, Creator/AndrewJOffutt, Creator/CJCherryh, Creator/JanetMorris and Creator/MarionZimmerBradley (with the first ''Literature/{{Lythande}}'' story) to contribute, and generated a buttload of books (12 short story compilations, 8 official novels, some graphic novel adaptations of the compilations and roleplaying adaptations from the likes of Creator/{{Chaosium}} and Creator/{{FASA}}) before it went on hiatus in 1989.

Then in 2002 Creator/LynnAbbey published a new novel in the universe, ''Sanctuary'' which re-started the series several decades later. Two additional anthologies were published, as well as D20 books from Creator/GreenRonin.

* ConstrainedWriting: In "The Secret of the Blue Star", MarionZimmerBradley carefully tried to [[spoiler: avoid referring to the gender of the magician Lythande to conceal the TwistEnding that [[SamusIsAGirl Lythande is a woman]].]] She did slip up at one point, however.

* HeroesWantRedheads - And it's frequently reciprocated. The ones who get to know her closer tend to change their opinion quickly, though. Whether due to her... rather unusual habits, acting batshit crazy at times or ego bigger than the prince's palace.



* RedHeadedHero: Chenaya Vigeles, "Daughter Of The Sun".
** IdiotHero / RoyalBrat - Generous, powerful, clever, beautiful... and extremely immature in some respects. Divine blessing from such a young age spoiled her even more than her high status possibly could.
