Opis

75th Anniversary Edition! From the crumbling temples of forgotten gods on Venus to the seedy pleasure halls of old Mars, Northwest Smith blazes a trail through the underbelly of the solar system in 13 action-packed stories you won’t soon forget. Among the best-written and most emotionally complex stories of the Pulp Era, the tales of intergalactic smuggler Northwest Smith still resonate strongly 75 years after their first publication. A staple of Weird Tales in its Golden Age, C.L. Moore's stories appeared alongside work by H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and Clark Ashton Smith, forming the backbone of the "unique magazine's" approach to science fiction and planetary adventure. For the first time ever, all of Northwest Smith's adventures have been collected in a single volume, including "Quest of the Starstone," which pairs Smith with Moore’s other famous creation, the fierce swordswoman Jirel of Joiry! * First published in Weird Tales in 1933, Catherine Lucille Moore exploded onto the pulp scene to become one of the most important science fiction and fantasy authors of all time. In her first story, "Shambleau", Moore revealed a vast imagination, beautifully descriptive prose, and a throbbing sensuality rarely matched by her male counterparts. It also marked the first appearance of Northwesat Smith, the quick-drawing outlaw of the spaceways who would become a science fiction archetype. (...) In a time when women were still marginalised in genre fiction, Catherine Moore stepped forward and opened the door for generations of female science fiction and fantasy authors. Earning praise from contemporaries like H.P. Lovecraft and Fritz Leiber as well as modern authors from Greg Bear to Michael Moorcock, C.L. Moore remains a giant in the genre, and the stories in this compilation comprise an essential addition to any science fiction library. Contents: Introduction: Teaching the World to Dream, by C. J.
