5.0 out of 5 stars Should be required reading! April 25 2012

My thanks to Amazon for connecting me to a seller of this book. C.L. Moore's Northwest Smith tales were among the most memorable stories of that period when they finally let me into the adult side of the public library. I read Moore's Northwest and Jirel of Joiry series over and over, and they have not become any less provocative 53 years later. Moore's fantasies still conjure up worlds as eerily evil and species as terrifyingly decadent as those of H.P. Lovecraft-- also required reading.
1.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe C.J. Cherryh indorsed this! Jan. 31 2013

C.J. Cherryh is my favorite author, so when she wrote a glowing introduction to these short stories I was expecting well written material. WRONG! The basic premise of each story is interesting, but there is very little plot development. Just paragraph after paragraph, page after page of mind numbing descriptions of the "horror" NW Smith is facing. This is followed by more description using about every adjective in the book on NW struggle to overcome the horror. Then the story ends.

It seems the author needed to have a certain number of words in each of her stories, so instead of coming up with action or dialogue to carry the story she just tried to describe the "indescribable" until she either ran out of adjectives or hit the necessary number of words. Do not waste your time or money on this book!
