Foreword by Donald Sidney-Fryer: afterword by John Howard. Serialised in 1977, The Pale Brown Thing is a shorter version of Fritz Leiberís World Fantasy Award-winning novel of the supernatural, Our Lady of Darkness. Leiber maintained that the two texts should be regarded as the same story told at different times. Limited to 350 (unnumbered) hardcover copies.

''the novella stands as Leiberís vision of 1970s San Francisco: a city imbued with an eccentric vibe and nefarious entities, in which pulp writer Franz Westen uncovers an alternate portrait of the cityís fin de siecle literary set - Ambrose Bierce, Jack London, Clark Ashton Smith - as well as the darker invocations of occultist Thibaut de Castries and a pale brown inhabitant of Corona Heights''.
