Fritz Leiber began writing science fiction in the 1940s and, to the delight of his fans, is still going strong. Perhaps best known for his Big Time series and the Hugo and Nebula awards winner Gonna Roll The Bones, Leiber succeeds in blending fantasy and science fiction in superbly readable fashion. This collection of twenty-two short stories is intended to demonstrate the development of his fascinating talent.
The collection includes
Gonna Roll The Bones – Joe Slattermill knew he could roll dice better than any man in Night Town. But then he played against the Big Gambler.
The Big Trek – He didn’t know where he was or how he got there. But he did know he shouldn’t be able to
understand the creatures he met.
Mariana – She flicked a switch that turned off the world . . . and the last one had her name on it.
This anthology includes a bibliography and an introduction by Fritz Leiber.

“Fritz Leiber is author of the most frightening and thoroughly convincing of all modern horror stories”
– Damon Knight
Here at last in paperback is the premiere collection of fantasy and horror fiction which has long been a coveted collectors’ item in hardback. The first part of the anthology includes unsurpassable horror tales of the modern city. The second exemplifies the best in Leiber’s ‘Ancient Adventures’ and features those two world-famous characters of sword-and-sorcery fiction, Farfrd and the Grey Mouser. These are colourful, exciting fantasies in the great tradition of fantastic adventure.
The collection which fantasy and horror readers have all being waiting for!
Thanks to sean of vault for the contents and cover scan!
