story ide The writing style Star Wars Thrawn Star Wars Thrawn here is very intriguing but it became tiring Everything is so intricate that it becomes florid Also the first 3 storiesad the same plot I did not read the rest I may come back to it in the future The way I ve eard it described with Northwest Smith being a Han Solo prototype I was expecting good pulpy action with rayguns and gross monsters It Northwest Smith being a Han Solo prototype I was expecting good pulpy action with rayguns and gross monsters It like Han Solo nearly getting seducedkilled by Lovecraftian beasties often disguised as women and just barely surviving The writing is much better than I expected like Michael Moorcock at is pulpy best The stories are fairly creepy and Guiding Readers and Writers, Grades 3-6: Teaching Comprehension, Genre, and Content Literacy held my interest The one gripe Iad was that many of them are fairly similar in plot and structureIn conclusion creepy yes action packed no adventure fiction from the fantastic pulpsgolden age sf short stories featuring northwest smith science fantasy and jirel of joiry fantasy no real science in nw populated solar system with venusians martians jungles desert planets moons plots basically westerns with spaceships and rayguns on the other no overarching world for jirel some continuing cha The stories follow a clear formula Northwest Smith encounters a damsel in distress who is Other Than She Seems and encounters some menacingly powerful otherworldly entity which The Stray Bullet he manages to resist through sheer force of will losing said damsel who is often the entity itself in the processFine enough but it starts to wear after the first three or four stories It sard to believe that these stories were written in the 1930 s except for the last one Now the concept of aliens on Venus Mars and a few other places is uite laughable today but taken for when they were written and as an alternate reality they really were uite fascinating Her world building was good We knew that NW was a smuggler and criminal from many key points but she never describes the man or Autobiography of Mark Twain, Vol. 3 his partner Venusian Yarol working aboard their ship In fact ships are rare These stories by and large are about NW encountering things usually women beyond the norm They reminded me of the Star Trek stories that touched on the supernatural like Who Mourns For Adonis Weave Medusa the tree of life and a werewolf In all of these it is the How to Fix a Broken Heart (TED Books) hardened and unusual nature of NW that leadsim out of situations that would doom lesser men As a smuggler Bloody Crystal he gets by but faced with extraordinary adversaries is wheree shinesCL Moore s writing style is typical for the 30 s but very good She La sculpture sur pierre : Art et techniques has a way of describing things that really put me in the scene I could feel what NW was feeling Her imagination and creativity wither otherworldly creatures is where she shines He words not only brought NW to life but every aspect of the world she was creating It was a marvelous read Not the best book I ve ever read but far better than I expected One I would recommend to anyone interested in SF tales of the fantastic. E stepped forward and opened the door for generations of female science fiction and fantasy authors Earning praise from contemporaries like HP Lovecraft and Fritz Leiber as well as modern authors from Greg Bear to Michael Moorcock CL Moore remains a giant in the genre and the stories in this compilation comprise an essential addition to any science fiction libra.

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 Iner first story 'Shambleu' Moore revealed a vast imagination beautifully descriptive prose and a throbbing sensuality rarely matched by er male counterparts It also marked the first ap. ,
D Northwest Smith is not a particularly strong character and I would disagree with anyone who suggests that e is an archetype for say Han Solo Northwest can barely take care of Between himself and wouldn t surviveis various scrapes without crucial assistance from Sigrid Liljeholm his Venusian sidekick Yarol or the various beautiful womene encounters One wonders David Starr Space Ranger how Northwestas stayed alive so long at all since Crusader conspiracy Banner books he seems particularly susceptible to getting into trouble and rarely able to get out of itSo what is Moore trying to say As one of the first female sci fi writers and certainly a pioneer for women in speculative fiction was she suggesting that the male protagonists of the pulp era should notave been as strong and independent as they were typically portrayed And if so why are Moore s female characters not stronger the woman who saves Northwest in Black Thirst after all dies a particularly pitiful death Northwest of Earth certainly provides plenty of food for thought even if the stories are carbon copies of one anotherFinished on page 99 after reading Shambleau The Black Thirst and part of Scarlet Dream When I was around 14 I was given a library card to the San Marino library system because the local branch of the Pasadena library system I was living in Pasadena California at the time just didn t The Book of Earths: Hollow Earth, Ancient Maps, Atlantis, and Other Theories (Forgotten Books) have enough books to keep meappy I was overjoyed to discover a An English Translation of Fa Tsangs Commentary on the Awakening of Faith huge selection of science fiction in the nearest San Marine library branch which I d never read before and I promptly set about devouring all of it One of the first things I discovered there was an omnibus anthology of some of the greatest science fiction stories of science fiction s Golden Age It included Shambleau by C L Moore one of the greatest short stories of all time regardless of genre a tale of a sexual vampire who imitates women in order to lure inuman men and drain them of life energy via sex It was then that I was introduced to Northwest Smith Moore s archetypal male Gauntlet A Novel of International Intrigue hero who broke the mold for all subseuent fictional adventurereroes and who in Shambleau barely escaped from the eponymous vampiric creature through no virtue of The University of Chicago Spanish English English Spanish Dictionary his own thanks to the timely intervention ofis partner in crime Yarol But than that Moore s superb storytelling opened up endless vistas of strange doomed worlds and universes of inconceivable Powers and Principalities of terrors and I magnifici dieci horrors and wonders unimaginable the like of which I d never encountered before And so over the years that followed I tried to find of Moore s fiction especially about Northwest Smither cavalier The Happiness Secrets Of Joel Osteen heroantihero always on the run from the interplanetary law forces aided and abetted byis Venusian sidekick Yarol discovering one eerie weird danger after another and somehow surviving all of them Occasionally I was successful and once I even managed to score a collection of Seashells her stories though only a few never enough to satisfyIn the 1970s or 1980s a collection of Moore s Northwest Smith stories was marketed by Ballantine Books and it contained most ofer stories about Northwest Smith including Shambleau The cover owever was a travesty rather than looking the way an irresistably seductive woman should the Shambleau on the cover
looked like a 
like a who d ad a catastrophically unfortunate run in with a massively incompetent cosmetic surgeon Ruhestand fr Einsteiger her face a mass of wrinkleser nose something straight out of the Paleocene the snakes on La criminologie heread looking somewhat the worse for wear And Northwest Smith Farmer Boy himself you couldn t seeis Random House Webster's College Dictionary: 1996 Graduation Promotion hair too well and it looked as ife were tonsured Or at least ad a seriously metastasizing see is Panda Bears hair too well and it looked as ife were tonsured Or at least Turning Points in Australian History had a seriously metastasizing spot Blechhh Well I finally got a copy of the book and kept it in my collection for years as much for reference as anything else And then And then this year the Science Fiction Book Club made Northwest of Earth The Complete Northwest Smith available to members Pearance of Northwest Smith the uick drawing outlaw of the spaceways who would become a science fiction archetype Here for the first time ever all thirteen of Northwest Smith's adventuresave been compiled into one rowdy thrill ride as sure to inspire readers today as it was seventy years agoIn a time when women were marginalized in genre fiction Catherine Moor.
