Sifting the branand wheat germ from the flour was an. Collection of 10 short stories. This popular classic work by Fritz Leiber is in the English language, and may not include graphics or images from the original edition. Leiber's late short fiction, and the fine horror novel Our Lady of Darkness, combine autobiographical issues like his struggle with depression and alcoholism with meditations on the emotional content of the fantastic genres. Indeed, thinkers wiser than myself haveequated the whole upward course of culture with this poignant quest.

The other machine quietly tookthe third of the high seats and lifted a claw at Meg, who now occupied astool twice the height of Roger's. There the tireless millsground the kernels to flour, which was instantly sifted, the bran beingpackaged and dropped like the chaff for pickup. But now, behold a wonder!

Bread Overhead

This short science fiction story from 1958 left me wondering what the heck it meant, if it is supposed to have any meaning at all. I can see it in your eyes. In fact, the story probably reads better now than it did in 1958, back when the choice came down to white or whole wheat. In ways that only humans can. Collection of 22 short stories. This is a very short story, so I can't give too much away.

Bread Overhead by Fritz Leiber

For the face, as if it also heard and sensed the menace in the voice, was moving back from the window's glow into the outside dark, but slowly, reluctantly, and still faunlike, pleading, cajoling, tempting, and incredibly beautiful. This was a silly story about America's never ending quest for whiter, fluffier bread. About one thousand miles farther on in that direction, where a clusterof stratosphere-tickling towers marked the location of the metropolis ofNewNew York, a tender scene was being enacted in the pressurizedpenthouse managerial suite of Puffy Products. . Always tongue in cheek, and always with a funny twist, Leiber deftly shows how humans will adapt to or mess up the future. The story is what happens if bread isn't just airy, but pumped full of lighter-than-air helium. This must have been published in a 50s or 60s scifi magazine or short story collection, but I found it alone as a free download on Amazon.
