Imagine a world where computers write the books and authors are mere marketing devices to help sell the product. This is the world Fritz Leiber imagined nearly 50 years ago. Leiber, a brilliant writer and innovator, wrote SF like the Change War series where agents of the future battle to change the timeline (or protect it). His most famous work was the Fafard and Gray Mouser series of sword-and-sorcery adventures. But Leiber, ever the innovator, came up with the concept of The Silver Eggheads which seems to be coming to fruition in the near future. Until then, we have real writers who actually write the books they hawk to the reading public. Let’s celebrate them until the computers take over writing the books as Leiber predicted.
