The best of C. L. Moore by C. L Moore( Book )

14 editions published between 1975 and 2015 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catherine Lucille Moore (1911-1987) was one of the greatest science fiction and fantasy writers of the Twentieth Century. Writing under the name C. L. Moore, she was one of the first truly successful women writers in genre fiction, gracing the early pages of Weird Tales and Astounding Stories. First published in the 1930s and 1940s, C. L. Moore’s collection of short stories embodies the otherworldly appeal of science fiction during that time, echoing America's growing fascination with space exploration and its rapidly expanding multicultural awareness. She confronted the fallacies of ethnocentrism, colonialism, and gender bias head on, reminding readers to take off the ethnocentric-colored glasses and appreciate the variety of people on our planet (and beyond) without judgment. After she met and married Henry Kuttner she almost completely stopped writing on her own, instead collaborating with him, then moving on to writing crime stories and for television in the late 1950s. By the time The Best of CL Moore was published it had been two decades since she had written science fiction. This collection is still a great introduction to what CL Moore had to offer

Remnants of the human race have settle on Venus, and have finally organized themselves into a static, class-ridden society in huge, marvellously efficient, eventless citadels, buried beneath the Venusian seas. The rulers are Immortals, genetic mutations who live a thousdand years or more ; their subjects are ordinary people like those who once inhabited Earth. The story centres around Sam Reed, an Immortal whose insane father had him so mutilated when he was a baby that he had no idea that he was Immortal until he was eighty. His inner battle between his own belief in his short-livedness and his inborn unconscious sense of the "long view" which typfied all Immortals, is the core around which his own career, and the salvation of mankind, develops."--Publisher description
