A Spectre is Haunting Texas – NaBloPoMo 2010

everything is bigger in Texas, right?


A Spectre is Haunting Texas by Fritz Leiber


well, Texans sure are thanks to hormonal treatments, in A Spectre is Haunting Texas, Fritz Leiber‘s post-nuclear war story.  unlike most after-the-nuclear-disaster novels, which tend to be somber dystopias, A Spectre… is a funny romp throughout a North American landscape where Texans are among the few survivors, thanks to the Houston Carlsbad Caverns-Denver-Kansas City-Little Rock Pentagram bunker, secretly built by Lyndon the First.

  1. Fritz was a very funny man. Also terribly sweet and patient in person, and quite debonair. He came from a family of Shakespearean actors and the man could declaim like nobody’s business.
