Happy Birthday Fritz Leiber!

Today is the birthday of my favorite fantasy writer. No, not Robert E. Howard. Fritz Leiber, creator of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, who broadened the scope of sword and sorcery with his dark humor and his sparkling prose. There are few originals in the world of S&S, but Leiber is truly a writer who took REH's framework and ran with it in a direction that was purely his own.
