Transcript GUEST OF HONOR FRITZ LEIBER was bom in 1910. Son of a Shakespearean actor, Fritz was at one time an actor himself and a member of his father's troupe. He made a cameo appearance in the film ^Equinox." Fritz has studied many sciences and was once editor of Science Digest. His writing career began prior to World War II with some stories in Weird Tales. Soon Unknown published his novel "Conjure Wife," which was made into a movie under the title (of all things) "Burn, Witch, Burn!" His Gray Mouser stories (which were the inspiration for the Fantasy Faire "Fritz Leiber Fantasy Award") were started in Unknown and continued in Fantastic, which magazine devoted its entire Nov., 1959 issue to Fritz's stories. In 1959 Fritz was awarded a Hugo, by the World Science Fiction Convention for his novel "The Big Time." His novel "The Wanderer," about an interloper into our solar system, won the Hugo again in 19 65.* His novelettes "Gonna Roll the Bones," "Ship of Shadows" and "111 Met in Lankhmar" won the Hugo in 1968, 1970 and 1971 in that order. In 1976 it was his short story "Catch That Zeppelin" that received the coveted award. "Gonna Roll the BonesT" "111 Met in Lankhmar" and "Catch That Zeppelin" also got the Nebula Award. Last year he was presented with the Grand Masters Award by the Science Fiction Writers of America. Other important novels written by Fritz Leiber are: "Gather Darkness," "The Green Millennium," "The Silver Eggheads" and "Tarzan & the Valley of Gold." Many of his shorter stories have been published as collections, a great many of them, such as "Swords Against Wizardry, " "Swords in the Mist" and "Two Sought Adventure," relate the adventures of the Gray Mouser and his companion.
