Moore seems to have posed a problem for most anthologists; her stories are never less than 1. 00 words in length, and most are much longer.

The only thing that seemed a little strange was how he speculated on why her writing style seemed to change after 1938. He cites biographers, who don't seem to agree, and it made me wonder why he didn't just ask Ms. Moore, instead of speculating out loud.

Catherine Lucille Moore (January 24, 1911 – April 4, 1987) was an American science fiction and fantasy writer, who first came to prominence in the 1930s writing as C. She was among the first women to write in the science fiction and fantasy genres, though earlier woman writers in these genres include Clare Winger Harris, Greye La Spina, and Francis Stevens, amongst others.

Moore is one of those lost treasures of American weird tales and science-fiction. Her legacy as one of the forerunners of the genre may have been forgotten or deliberately sabotaged by lesser writers, but either way this tome presents some of the best science-fiction ever written. Moore writes stories with a human touch and deftness that brings true romance to even a descent into hell for a soul-bought sword of vengeance. As with all the best science fiction stories, the ideas and notions she plays with - the first real cyborg, time travel, and so on - aren't nearly as important as the analysis of what these ideas mean to individual humans and to humanity as a whole.

If you want to see the best science fiction has to offer, give C.L. Moore a shot. She's not just one of the best female sci-fi authors ever, she's one of the best, period.
Moore is classic. This is a nice selection of her little-known works. If you are a lover of Science Fiction, then this is a must. Her first published story, Shambleau, left the bleak, mechanical, and apathetic elements of the genre behind and paved the way for science fiction writers to create worlds and characters with warmth, personality, color, sexual drive, and love.

Using the pen name C.L. Moore, many readers didn't know if the author was a male or female. However, forty years after being published, Catherine Lucille Moore (1911-1987) was honored at a World Science Fiction Convention banquet. The speech to accompany the presentation was never made because—upon hearing the title Shambleau—the 2,000 people in attendance rose to their feet and began shouting and clapping.

This is a priceless addition to any science fiction collection.
The Northwest Smith stories in this collection are among my favorite "planetary romances," as they were called at the time. Unfortunately, they are of a kind not written anymore, victims as much of astronomical knowledge as they are changing literary tastes. The other stories in the book are also excellent, especially "Vintage Season," a subtle view of the morality of time travelers.
I had the original science fiction book club version of this book for years. Sadly, it mildewed in my basement--I really need to get more space for my books.

I first read this book in high school, and fell in love with it. A mixture of science fiction and myth, and a dream of wonder.
This collection of stories were published during the Golden Age Of Science Fiction during the 1930s and 40s. They represent an author who works rival those of H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard and Edger Rice Burroughs.
I have loved this book for decades. My hardcover edition is showing the ravages of time, so I was thrilled to find this as a Kindle edition.

It is a classic and still reads amazingly well now.
I really enjoyed reading this collection, even though I've read the stories in an earlier collection. Reading them a seconds was refreshing
Fascinating writer. Not epic. But doesn't suck either.
