''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 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 Chaosium and FASA) before it went on hiatus in 1989.
