SF novel. First published as an Ace paperback original in 1961 (D-491), Winner of a Hugo award for best novel.

''his return to sf in 1958 was vigorous, his first stories introducing the Change War series, built around a time-paradox war being fought through time and space and alternate worldsby two factions, the ''Spiders'' and the ''Snakes''. The sequence comprises THE BIG TIME (1961) along with most of The Mind Spider and Other Stories (1961): THE BIG TIME, which takes place entirely in one room (an R & R location called the Place, sited beyond normal realities) is suggestive of a play in prose form, and thus reflects the author's background in theatre; both his parents were Shakespearean actors and his father appeared in many films, and Leiber himself himself acted on both stage and screen, including a small part in the Greta Garbo film Camille (1936). THE BIG TIME won a Hugo as Best Novel'' (Malcolm J Edwards/Encyclopedia of SF).
