Overview

Miracle In Three Dimensions and Other Stories contains nine rare tales by C.L. Moore, one of the most popular and significant writers of fantastic literature for the pulp magazines of the early 20th century. The tales here span the gamut from science fiction to mythological fantasy - from technological horror to unearthly romance - and back again, to the everyday reality of twentieth century America and the special horrors people can inflict upon each other. Nine stories, each a unique vision beyond ordinary imagination - a soldier of fortune is recruited to assassinate the god of an alien world in "The Bright Illusion"; an ancient intelligent computer on a hidden island contemplates perfection, until a shipwrecked sailor brings chaos and confusion in "Greater Glories", (published here for the first time since 1935); a world-weary traveler makes a blind leap into adventure, and finds that true love is more complicated than it seems in "Tryst In Time"; a man gains the full awareness of the ultimate consequences of his actions in "Greater Than Gods"; a new kind of motion picture has the power to kill in the title story, "Miracle In Three Dimensions"; the legend of Eden is given a new twist in "Fruit Of Knowledge"; betrayal and revolution come to a strange alternate-universe Venus in "There Shall Be Darkness"; an alien collector has his eyes on a beautiful human female to add to his favorite display case in "Doorway Into Time"; and a woman finds herself driven to suicide in "here lies...", a crime story set in contemporary California, unseen since its first publication more than 50 years ago.

Meet the Author

Catherine (C. L.) Moore, born in 1911, was the most significant woman in early 20th century fantastic literature. She was a friend and correspondent of H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Leigh Brackett, and other luminaries of the period. Her stories, published throughout the 30s and 40s in Weird Tales, Astounding, and other popular pulp magazines, were instrumental in the development of modern fantasy, horror, and science fiction. Much of her writing focused on the fantastic, although she also wrote in other genres. For most of her career, she worked in close collaboration with her first husband, Henry Kuttner, a well-regarded author in his own right. Together they wrote hundreds of novels, short stories, and scripts for film, television, and radio under numerous pen names (including the story "Mimsy Were The Borogoves", recently adapted as a major motion picture). After Henry's tragic death in 1958, she continued to write for television shows (under the name Catherine Kuttner), including "Sugarfoot," "The Alaskans," "Maverick," and "77 Sunset Strip." Upon remarrying in 1963, she ceased writing altogether. Acclaimed as a Grand Master of Science Fiction and Fantasy, she was honored with the Bram Stoker Award and the World Fantasy Award, and is an inductee of the Science Fiction Hall Of Fame. She died in 1987.
