Weird.But thanks for the tidbit. :)
Hard as it may be to believe, I have never read Leiber. Being a follower of Grognardia, I decided it was time to fill the gaps in my pulp fantasy exposure. I picked up three of the Ace paperbacks from the Fahrd & Grey Mouser series at Half Price Books. I found the remaining four on Half.com. Guess I have some reading to do.
I envy you the pleasure of reading these for the first time! If only I could do it again...If you have the Dragon magazine archives CD ROM (or an extensive collection of the real thing) there are a lot of neat articles from Leiber's buddy and co-creator of the rudimentary "rpg" that Fafhrd and Mouser were created for.
His dad was a well known Shakespearean actor and he started out as an actor before he took up writing. I didn't realize he had kept it up though.
Kneel before Lieber!
ok, here is one of my few confessions: I am addicted to Equinox. Sometimes if places in heavy rotation on Showtime and The Movie Channel and I try to catch every showing. This movie is so utterly terrible that I cannot get enough. I am too scared to by the dvd, I would never leave the house.Dr Waterman!Mr Asmodeus!An Ogre!Herb from WKRP in Cincinnati!
or buy the dvd, sheesh. I was so excited that I gummed up the post.
I caught it earlier today on ShowtimeBeyond.Possibly, I need help...
Hah, Equinox owns you now...;-)
Oddly enough, I missed this when my fiancee and I recently watched Equinox. (First time ever; came in late; missed the end too. Spent the first five minutes going "Isn't that Herb from WKRP??" and the rest of the time chuckling at the movie's addictive badness. :P) However, just a couple of days ago, we sat down to watch The Spanish Main. (Whoever thought Paul Heinreid would make a good roguish pirate must have been mad.) And there was the name "Fritz Leiber" in the credits - who in fact turns out to be our beloved author's dad.
One day later it is on FlixWest, I am watching it right now.!EM PLEH!EM PLEH
