Overview

Have you ever worried about your memory, because it doesn't seem to recall exactly the same past from one day to the next? Have you ever thought you might be changing because of forces beyond your control? Have you ever thought that the whole universe might be a crazy, mixed-up dream? If you have, then you've had hints of the Change War.

It's been going on for a billion years and it'll last another billion or so. Up and down the timeline, the two sides—"Spiders" and "Snakes"—batle endlessly to change the future and the past. Our lives and memories are their battleground. And in the midst of the war is the Place, outside space and time, where Great Forzane and other Entertainers provide solace and R&R for tired time warriors.

Editorial Reviews

Science Fiction Weekly
The Big Time is audacious and original, and probably one of the best science fiction novels ever written.
From the Publisher

"An extraordinary tour de force with no equal in the literature of science fiction."—A Reader's Guide to Science Fiction

"I most urgently recommend this book to you . . . What the entrances, performances and exits of this little mostly human troupe accomplish is a statement about all wars, and all people."—Algis Budrys

    Good read, but not Fafhrd and Gray Mouser good

    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.
