    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. 4.0 to 4.5 stars I have only read one story from this collection the classic short story Coming Attraction which was excellent I intend to read .



    2. If you read fantasy, you must read Fritz Leiber He was one of the writers who defined modern fantasy, as recognized by his Lifetime Achievement World Fantasy Award in 1976 as well as a plethora of award and titles in fantasy, science fiction and horror , and he deserves to be in wider circulation He was instrumental in creating the sub genre of sword and sorcery fantasy, indeed creating the term itself, and arguably even so, contemporary or urban fantasy He also was one of the largest influence [...]

    4. I play Dungeons Dragons I ve played Dungeons Dragons since I was knee high to a duergar If you don t know what a duergar is, you probably don t play Dungeons Dragons if you do know what a duergar is and you don t play Dungeons Dragons, you are either well versed in the world s mythologies or All of this to say that my introduction to Fritz Leiber s work was the Nehwon Mythos section of TSR s Deities Demigods later Legends Lore and yes, I have at one time or another owned both versions of this bo [...]


    5. 3.5 I enjoyed much of Mr Lieber s earliest work, but the later stories faded for me The later stories, while engaging, seemed to bog down in details that just didn t move the stories forward.


    6. His greatest hits Has A Pail Of Air, Girl With the Hungry Eyes, The Man Who Never Grew Young, Morphy Watch, Belsen Express and perhaps the greatest science fiction story ever written Coming Attraction I did skip all the Gray Mouser things because I m not really into that stuff Unfortunately he got indulgent later on like with Salinger with windy, wordy, parenthesis laden tendencies although The Button Molder does somehow work for me or pointless Lafferty knockoffs, like A Rite Of Spring, The In [...]


    7. Recommended, both for content and for a historical taste of sci fi horror spanning the 1940s 1970 Folks really believed psychology applied en masse would save us all, or change us utterly I still prefer his horror thriller sci fi short stories to the Grey Mouser series of shorts.
