The Worlds of Fritz Leiber

First published in 1976 by Ace as a Paperback

This is one of the best collections available. Compared to The Best of Fritz Leiber the stories are all a little more off centre, and probably give a fairer view of his work overall.

“A fine, fat gathering of sf anf fantasy stories by an old master (whose light has shone more clearly in the Fantasy category). It includes the Hugo and Nebula award winning tale ‘Catch That Zeppelin!. Pleasingly the book contains no overlaps with The Best of Fritz Leiber, published two years earlier. It is, in effect, a second ‘Best of…’ selection.”
