Synopsis: In regards to Fritz Leiber, I believe that publication of such unpublished and uncollected works only strengthens his literary greatness. Through fragments, drafts and practice writings, we can clearly see the evolution from Leiber, the amateur, to Leiber, the professional. We are exposed to the clear way in which he dedicated his life to the written word and trained his abilities to produce the award-winning masterpieces that we read even today. While some may object to such a volume, I ask them this--is not the dream just as important as the empire that had been built from it? Are not the blueprints and sketches as impressive as the buildings and the artwork? We must place all this into perspective, and see that publishing such works is not a smear upon Leiber's legacy. Rather, it completes a full circle. If we are asked to be thorough in the biography of an individual, then we must also do so for their bibliography.

-- Benjamin Szumskyj, from his Introduction

From Publishers Weekly: More the literary equivalent of a set of DVD extras than a true collection, these stories, poems, and fragments might intrigue Leiber completists, but won't offer much to readers looking for entertainment. Most of the included pieces are incomplete, offering only a glimpse into what might have been. A few items of religious juvenilia offer an intriguing glimpse down Leiber's roads not taken. The diehard fan or scholar will enjoy some of the unpolished but largely self-sufficient tales like "Opaque Corridor," "The Communicants," and "Social Inventor." Only "The Mystery of the Japanese Clock," an exercise in mechanical analysis, and the wacky "Quicks Around the Zodiac" really provide anything that might be of interest to the casual reader. (Nov.)
