The Big Timeby Fritz Leiber
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
This Hugo Award winning novel dripped from the pen of master author Fritz Leiber, and was originall published in two parts in the pulp magazine, Galaxy Science Fiction in March and April of 1958. This is a classic work of time travel, pitting two warring factions, both with the ability to travel through time against one another in a tapestry of changed events and altnernate futures. With that war as a backdrop, the novel takes place at a "rest and relaxation" base that is a sort of neutral point between changing time lines. This is both science fiction, and a classicly crafted mystery.

The title of my review says it all. I do love me some Leiber, but nothing compares to his Fafhrd and Gray Mouser stories. This one did win an award, I think, and it's a good read.
