-Fritz Leiber was born in 1910 and died in 1992.  He was considered one of the best genre authors of all time and a pioneer in the field. He was very well respected and admired by his peers, and authors such as Harlan Ellison, Ramsey Campbell, Stephen King, and Neil Gaiman have all remarked on how much authors today owe to him.  Among many [[biography:awards|awards]] bestowed upon him include the Grand Master of Science Fiction, Grand Master of Fantasy, and one of the first Bram Stoker Awards for Lifetime Achievement in horror.  He excelled and broke new ground in all three genres--a rarity among authors.+Fritz Leiber was born in 1910 and died in 1992.  He was considered one of the best genre authors of all time and a pioneer in the field.

-<storyquote>… But the Place is strictly on the Big Time and everybody that should know tells me that time traveling through the Big Time is out. It’s this way: the Big Time is a train, and the Little Time is the countryside and we’re on the train, unless we go out a Door, and as Gertie Stein might put it, you can’t time travel through the time you time travel in when you time travel. </storyquote>+  * [[discussion:community_quidelines|]]
