Poul Anderson“When half-Gods go/The Gods arrive.” Yes, but what do you do when the Gods themselves depart?
Algis BudrysWhere is Leiber’s Pulitzer? Where is his National Book Award?
Ramsey CampbellFritz Leiber was the father of modern supernatural horror fiction, and its greatest master. I'll stake my reputation on the belief that once “Smoke Ghost” was published, the field could never be the same again.
