Vorwort
From the ground-breaking digital initiative, the SF Gateway, three acclaimed novels from the award-winning C. L. Moore. A perfect introduction to one of the greats of classic SF.

Autorentext
Catherine Lucille Moore was born in Indianapolis in 1911. Prolonged illness when young meant she spent much of her time as a child reading the fantastic tales of the day, a background which no doubt spurred her on to become a writer of science fiction and fantasy herself. Moore made her first professional sale to WEIRD TALES while still in her early 20s: the planetary romance SHAMBLEAU, which introduced one of her best-known heroes, Northwest Smith. She went on to produce a highly respected body of work, initially solo for WEIRD TALES and then, in collaboration with her husband, fellow SF writer Henry Kuttner, whom she married in 1940, for John W. Campbell's ASTOUNDING SCIENCE FICTION. Moore was one of the first women to rise to prominence in the male-dominated world of early SF, and paved the way for others to follow in her footsteps. Moore ceased to write fiction after Kuttner's death in 1958, concentrating instead on writing for television. She died in April 1987 after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease.

Klappentext

From The SF Gateway, the most comprehensive digital library of classic SFF titles ever assembled, comes an ideal sample introduction to the fantastic work of C. L. Moore. One of the first women to rise to prominence in the male-dominated world of pulp science fiction, Moore was a mainstay of SF in the middle of the last century, both as a solo writer and in collaboration with her husband, Henry Kuttner. This omnibus reprints the first two of her Northwest Smith books, SHAMBLEAU AND OTHERS and NORTHWEST OF EARTH, and story collection JUDGEMENT NIGHT.
