Appendix Z - C. L. Moore




Appendix Z - C. L. Moore

I have only read a fraction of her writing, the Jirel and Northwest Smith stories, and not all of them, but C. L. Moore stands out as one of the great writers of weird tales and, with Jirel, the first woman who mastered swords and sorcery fiction. The Black God's Kiss touches on Hodgson, on Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith, but in her own style and her own view of the weird and the horrific matched with a sense of adventure. I look to read all her works with great anticipation and recommend to any who are stirred by the great writers of the days of the strange, exciting and surreal stories caught between the pages of pulp magazines to search her work out as well.

  1. Funny to see this at this moment... I not ten minutes ago set Jirel of Joiry (same cover as you are showing) on my nightstand as the next book I'll read...

    Thanks for putting this together.

  2. You are very welcome.

    I have her 'best of' anthology on my desk. I don't know why it took me this long to do a Appendix Z entry for her. Until I started looking up her bibliography and organizing it I didn't realize just how much she had written (or how much I hadn't read).

  3. I had not heard of her before. In case anyone is looking for a starting place for background information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C._L._Moore

    1. Definitely give Shambleu a try as well as her Jirel stories. I haven't read much of her, her husband or their work as a team.

    1. They did a reprint from Paizo so I wonder if it is available on their website. I spotted some on ebay last week but they may be gone
