Foreword by Donald Sidney-Fryer: afterword by John Howard. Serialised in 1977, The Pale Brown Thing is a shorter version of Fritz Leiber’s 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 EDITION: 350 (unnumbered) hardcover copies printed.
''the novella stands as Leiber’s 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 city’s 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''.
