JUDGEMENT NIGHT: Golden Age Masterworks


JUDGEMENT NIGHT: Golden Age Masterworks

C. L. MOORE    Book Number: 88110    Product format: Paperback

Released in 1952, the novel collects five Catherine Lucille Moore (1911-1987) novellas from the pages of Astounding Science Fiction magazine. She was one of the first women to rise to prominence in the male-dominated world of early SF. Judgment Night balances a lush rendering of a future galactic empire with a sober meditation on the nature of power and its inevitable loss. The Code pays homage to classic Faust with modern theories and Lovecraftian dread. Promised Land and Heir Apparent both document the grim twisting that mankind must undergo in order to spread into the solar system. Paradise Street shows a futuristic take on the old Western conflict between lone hunter and the wilderness-taming settlers. Chosen by the author herself as the best of her longer-form writing, it shows her at the height of her talents. 348pp in paperback, it is an elegant and chilling portrait of tomorrow.
