Shambleau by C.L. Moore
HAD Northwest Smith, the famous outlaw of the spaceways, been able to foresee the future, he would not have shielded the frightened, scarlet-clad girl from the wild mob pursuing her through the narrow streets of Lakkdarol, Earth’s last colony on Mars. “Shambleau! Shambleau!” the crowd cried with loathing and disgust, but Smith drove them off with his blaster and took the exhausted girl to his quarters. There was no hair upon her face — neither brows nor lashes; but what lay hidden beneath the tight scarlet turban bound around her head?
When it first appeared “Shambleau” was acclaimed by readers, authors, and editors as the debut of a truly gifted talent in the field of fiction writing. It introduced the very popular character Northwest Smith, hardbitten roamer of the spaceways in this classic retelling of the Medusa story.
The Northwest Smith stories were originally published between 1933 and 1940, mostly in Weird Tales. The stories collected here are revisions of the earlier stories and were published as Galaxy Science Fiction Novel No. 31, Shambleau by C.L. Moore in 1953.
