In 1933 C. L. Moore contributed the first of her famous Northwest Smith stories to the old Weird Tales magazine. (Remarkable in that she was not only young, but a woman who was featured in a magazine dominated by male authors.)

That shadowy tale was called "Shambleau" and it took the Gorgon/Medusa legend out of earthly trappings and placed it on other worlds.

The Northwest Smith stories continued over a period of years with a great degree of success. Scarlet Dream offers ten of these fantastic, interplanetary tales, personally selected for this volume by the author.
