"The Big Time" is a short science fiction novel by Fritz Leiber. It won the Hugo Award in 1958. The Big Time is a vast, cosmic back story, hidden behind a claustrophobic front story with only a few characters. The storyline involves two factions which both have time travel who are at war with each other. Their method of battle involves changing the outcome of events throughout history. The action of the story takes place at a rest and relaxation base between the changing time lanes. The plot takes the form of a locked room mystery. "The Big Time" was originally published in two parts in Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine's March and April 1958 issues. It has many subsequent reprints in book form. It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition.
