The Secret Songs

First published in 1964 by Ballantine as a Paperback

Contains a very wide range of stories, covering all the periods of his writing . Although duplicated heavily in The Best of Fritz Leiber, the inclusion of such stories as The Girl with Hungry Eyes, Smoke Ghost and The Secret Songs make it an excellent collection. Available in the UK only.

“SF and Fantasy stories of considerable variety and idiosyncrasy, many of them reprinted from earlier Leiber collections. As well as early standards like ‘The Smoke Ghost’, it include some interestingly unclassifiable tales from the 1960s such as ‘The Winter Flies’; and the title piece. ‘Every story in the book is finished with a craftsman’s care, and they are all thoroughly readable. M. John Harrison – New Worlds”.
The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction – David Pringle
