    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. Cr nicas del gran tiempo se conforma de siete relatos complementarios, dentro de la serie de la Guerra del Gran Cambio, en informaci n y semi continuidad Porqu no tienen un rigor cronol gico estricto en esencia, ya que pueden darse en paralelo dentro de diferentes espacios y tiempo a su novela predecesora El gran tiempo, premio Hugo en 1958.La BASE DE LA NOVELA INAUGURAL Y POSTERIORES RELATOS ES LA CONTIENDA DE DOS BANDOS POR LA HEGEMON A DEL UNIVERSO LAS ARA AS Y LAS SERPIENTES, QUE MEDIANTE EL [...]


    2. Este libro de relatos situados en el universo creado en una novela anterior El gran tiempo , 1958 me ha parecido un caso excepcional de c mo una secuela puede superar y en mucho a la obra matriz La raz n es que Leiber ya no se siente obligado a caracterizar el mundo lo que en la novela generaba di logos poco cre bles del tipo sabr usted que y unos insertos de documentaci n que cortaban el fluir de la narraci n y se centra en explorar las consecuencias sobre los personajes de una guerra que queda [...]


    3. I didn t know this book, which collects almost all Leiber s time traveling Change War stories, existed until recently I d read most of the Change War stories over the years including the only one not included here, The Big Time but two in this book were new to me Knight to Move and No Great Magic.The overall premise here is that history can be changed, but it s really difficult In fact, to pull it off you need the equivalent of a time traveling army There are two such forces that struggle endles [...]


    4. En general creo que es una buena aproximaci n a los relatos de Fritz Leiber, al que intentar leer m s en un futuro Pero la lectura frecuentemente se tornaba pesada y aburrida Sin embargo, me llama la atenci n la realidad en la que se desarrolla el universo de este autor Juega con el espacio tiempo de una forma que no he visto antes, y eso que sus historias apenas s tratan el asunto de forma tangencial, pero detr s se esconde mucho m s.


    5. Cool idea of a secret war that stretches through time, but Leiber keeps it so vague what the various sides want that you aren t sure if you can or should be rooting for anybody, so you start to wonder why you are bothering at all.Stories jump all over the place and there are almost no reoccurring characters, so it just gets very big, cosmic and vague.Simon Hawkes Time Wars series did it better.


    6. Interesting concept You don t find out much about the war directly rather the book shows a series of situations affected by the war This approach reminds me of the Culture series.


    7. Instant neas sobre una idea interesante G nero Relatos.Lo que nos cuenta Recopilaci n de siete relatos del autor, escritos entre el a o 1958 y 1965 y jurar a que todos, excepto uno, previamente publicados en diferentes revistas, pero espero correcciones de alg n experto si me equivoco , que transcurren dentro de la Guerra del Cambio, concepto creado por el autor en su novela El gran tiempo , entre dos facciones conocidas como Serpientes y Ara as respectivamente que luchan entre s a trav s del ti [...]


    8. A very enjoyable and well written series of short stories These fit into the future time travellers need to either fix the past or make sure some future baddie doesn t undo the past type of story Lots of fantasy SF authors have taken stabs at this genre, and this is a moderately successful work Of course the stories are now about 40 years old, and they creak a bit as a result Regardless, Leiber fans will enjoy these, and I d also recommend to those who like the time travel genre generally.I do t [...]


    9. I think he handled the time travel OK, but it s a bit difficult to get a handle on time travel in a bunch of short storiesere are all kinds of conundrums that present themselves if you start thinking seriously about time travel and he never goes too close to those I would like to find a full length novel of Leiber.
