The Green Millennium

by Fritz Leiber
Release date: 1953
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Hugo and Nebula award-winning Fritz Leiber is a science fiction grand master with an unparalleled ability to discern the stranger side of the universe.

The Green Millennium is set in a futuristic human society based on our own.

The regimented, regulated and bureaucratized life style led by the misanthropic Phil Gish leaves him feeling vaguely dissatisfied and emotionally cut off from other people. He is surprised when a pure green cat appears in his room, a cat who makes him feel happier and more alive than he has ever felt. Phil decides to call the cat Lucky, hoping his life will take a turn for the better.

If you consider different as change for the better, then Gish really has got something in Lucky – something that everyone else wants – including the Mob, the FBI, some nude aliens, and a gorgeous mystery woman.

When Lucky seems to vanish into thin air, Phil will do anything to get him back, even if it means challenging the very powers that rule his world.
