    About “Fritz Leiber”

    1. Fritz Leiber

      Fritz Reuter Leiber, Jr was one of the interesting of the young writers who came into HP Lovecraft s orbit, and some of his best early short fiction is horror rather than sf or fantasy He found his mature voice early in the first of the sword and sorcery adventures featuring the large sensitive barbarian Fafhrd and the small street smart ish Gray Mouser he returned to this series at various points in his career, using it sometimes for farce and sometimes for gloomy mood pieces The Swords of Lankhmar is perhaps the best single volume of their adventures Leiber s science fiction includes the planet smashing The Wanderer in which a large cast mostly survive flood, fire, and the sexual attentions of feline aliens, and the satirical A Spectre is Haunting Texas in which a gangling, exo skeleton clad actor from the Moon leads a revolution and finds his true love Leiber s late short fiction, and the fine horror novel Our Lady of Darkness, combine autobiographical issues like his struggle with depression and alcoholism with meditations on the emotional content of the fantastic genres Leiber s capacity for endless self reinvention and productive self examination kept him, until his death, one of the most modern of his sf generation.

    1. Decent collection of more or less SF stories by Fritz Leiber. The collection is structurally odd in that it includes a few stories that are clearly part of the Changewar series, a few that clearly are not, and one that might be. The title story is about a telepathic Mind Spider threatening the existence of Earth, and the Changewar series is about time-travelling telepathic factions called Snakes and Spiders, so there is a suggestion of a link, but if so, how it works is not clear in this contex [...]


    2. Like many collections of short stories, there's a mix of quality in this one, but some really stand out as excellent 5-star stories, with others being merely entertaining. The opening story, "The Haunted Future" is not only compelling, but does an amazing job at fast forwarding the impact of a futuristic world where worrying about what everyone else thinks and complying to societal norms is far more important than actually being happy and an individual. It's even more amazing considering that it [...]


    3. Las obras de ciencia ficción o de fantasía de Leiber han envejecido muy bien, sobre todo por el buen oficio como escritor. Las mejores las de la guerra del cambio, la que menos me gustó la que da título al libro.



    4. Some nice ideas but not all were well developed. You could certainly see Leiber's views on current (at the time) society slipping through.


    5. Some pretty good stories here. Turns out you can definitely read this even if you haven't read "The Big Time" since only 3 stories are really part of the time war sequence.



    6. Some great stories in this book, including the title work. Leiber was great at both intriguing concepts and dark atmosphere, and he did a superb job of both in this collection of short stories.
