The novel “The Sinful Ones” by Fritz Leiber was published for the first time in 1953. Its protagonist Carr Mackay lives a very normal life until one day he meets a girl who looks upset and asks him strange questions. All of this happens in a few minutes and initially he dismisses the event but then he begins to feel increasingly estranged from his daily routine.
Fritz Leiber was an extraordinalily eclectic writer, able to produce stories of various kinds with originality and sensitivity reinterpreting classic plots in new ways offering his readers stories always different from each other.
