Two Fritz Leiber Items

On an episode of the Coode Street Podcast with Michael Swanwick, he discusses the debt his Darger and Surplus stories owe to Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. He briefly mentions a conversation he had with Leiber in which Leiber said “All my stories are horror stories.”

You can also now get cheap reprints, in ebook or paperback, of the once pricey 2004 Leiber collection Horrible Imaginings.

I’m now reading the title story for a discussion over at LibraryThing. It’s a claustrophobic ghost story set in an apartment building with multiple viewpoints and ironic eroticism.
