While Howard Phillips Lovecraft was closing the final chapter of his writing career, Fritz Reuter Leiber was only beginning to open his own. The year was 1936 and Jonquil Leiber, Fritz's first wife, sent a letter on her own initiative to Lovecraft, knowing that her husband had been an avid admirer of his work, ever since his first reading of "The Colour out of Space" and hoping that Lovecraft's presence in Fritz's slow-paced writing career might be the source of inspiration he so dearly needed. Lovecraft replied promptly on November 2 of that year, the seed of an invigorating correspondence, which lasted till Lovecraft's passing. Fritz Leiber and H.P. Lovecraft: Writers of the Dark presents Lovecraft's letters to Leiber, an impressive selection of Leiber's fiction which shows Lovecraft's influence, and a selection...

From School Library Journal
Grade 6 Up–Joe Slattermill is a gambling man who has an uncanny encounter with the Big Gambler in his town's new gaming parlor, The Boneyard. Leiber's fantasy novelette, greatly reduced and lightened in this picture-book adaptation, won the 1967 Nebula Award and the 1968 Hugo Award. Wiesner's sometimes smudgy pencil drawings on browned acrylic have the faded look of very long ago, though the text notes that "Far in the distance, Joe could see a faint glow of gas flares and blue lights and neon pink tubes, all jeering at the stars where the spaceships flew." Joe's attempt to out-gamble the Grim Reaper-type figure is both spooky and somewhat predictable. He loses his soul in a wager with the Big Gambler, and after a final physical skirmish, the skeletal figure crumbles and all turns to dust as though it...

Book Review
Three cheers for Tor Books! The SFWA Grand Masters, Volume One, is a terrific idea: a collection of stories by the Golden Age writers (in this volume, Robert A. Heinlein, Jack Williamson, Clifford D. Simak, Fritz Leiber, and L. Sprague de Camp) who established the fundamentals of the science fiction genre ... the writers who first dazzled the world with their brilliant ideas and sent our imaginations zooming into the future. Representative short stories from each of the writers--such as a tale of the ever rich and strange world of Nehwon from Leiber--are accompanied by a sample of each writer's nonfiction, an overview of their life and career by Pohl--who knew them all--and a recommended reading list. All together, this volume is both the perfect way to introduce someone just discovering science fiction to the classic...

Book Review
Fritz Leiber (1910-1992) is best known as the creator of the popular heroic-fantasy duo, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, but his accomplishments, far more diverse than this suggests, have been strongly influenced not only by fantasy but also by science fiction and horror. His fiction has won the Hugo, Nebula, Derleth, Gandalf, Lovecraft, and World Fantasy Awards, and he has been honored with the Life Achievement Lovecraft Award and the Grand Master Nebula Award. Two of his best novels are the classic dark fantasies Conjure Wife (in 1943 filmed as Weird Woman and Burn Witch Burn) and Our Lady of Darkness (1978 winner of the World Fantasy Award), available in a single volume as Dark Ladies.

In Conjure Wife, Professor Norman Saylor, ethnologist and rationalist, is enjoying rapid career advancement and a happy marriage until the...

From AudioFile
In a postapocalyptic future, the Hierarchy of the Great God controls technology and, with it, the commoners. Brother Armon Jarles, a young priest, becomes enraged and speaks out against the church. When he is claimed by the forces of evil, the Hierarchy finds itself in a fight with witches--and with technology that could match its own. Stefan Rudnicki reads this story, originally serialized in ASTOUNDING SCIENCE FICTION in 1943, with deep, sinister intonations that hint of menace and a bit of devilishness. His character voices lean to the unusual, adding to the mood of an unsettling but fascinating world. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

From Publishers Weekly
This whimsical book is the first complete collection of the cat stories of the late Leiber (1910-1992), best known for his "Fafhrd and Gray Mouser" series, and features his last story, written especially for this volume. The roundup also serves as a tribute to Leiber; it is prefaced by a series of commemorative essays by such notables as Stephen King, Ray Bradbury and Andre Norton. While they are touching, their sheer number (14) is overwhelming. The volume concludes with a selection of amusing, though mediocre, feline-themed poems by Leiber's wife, Margo Skinner, and by Karen and Poul Anderson. The best of the cat stories have an autobiographical flavor and mainly concern Gummitch, a philosophically minded housecat, and his human family. Often Leiber assumes a cat's point of view, portraying non-human...

Book Review
Fritz Leiber (1910-1992) is best known as a fantasy writer, but his achievements and influence are also considerable in the horror and science fiction fields. One of his major SF works is the Change War series, about rival time-traveling armies locked in a bitter, age-old war for control of existence; the battles frequently alter the course of human history. The most important work of Leiber's Change War series is the Hugo Award-winning novel The Big Time, in which doctors, entertainers, and wounded soldiers find themselves treacherously trapped with an activated atomic bomb inside the Place, a room existing outside of space-time. It's not one of Leiber's strongest novels: the cutesy-girlish narrative voice is unconvincing, while the demands of describing time travel and time paradoxes inevitably strain the prose....
