The Green Millennium

By Fritz Leiber

Rating: 3 stars

Phil Gish is a man who feels out of place in an increasingly hectic world. Into his life comes a small green kitten that he names Lucky that changes his life and involves him in a conspiracy that will change the world.

I don’t really have an awful lot to say about this book. The last Leiber that I read was a collection of short stories that I loved, but this was a fairly straightforward adventure with some fairly odd characters. There is some wry comment on America with prescient views of a vulgarised society and the ‘Federal Bureau of Loyalty’ that I quite enjoyed though.

Possibly the most memorable thing about the book, however, is its truly awful cover.
