Overview

The Story That Helped Make SF Famous! This 1915 classic tells the story of a pool of force inside Polynesia's Nan Matol ruins created by the vibrational pattern of seven different lights, which release the "Shining One," a powerful, luminous being of radiant matter who can race down moonbeams, bearing away to his own realm men and women who wear a mingled expression of ecstasy and loathing on their faces. The SF Encyclopedia hails him as "The supreme fantasy genius of his day." The mainstream Hartford Times called him a writer who "weaves a web of fantasy--with poignancy and poetry--stories of tremendous action and excitement." And the Saturday Review of Literature named him, "A genius" whose work displayed "a fertility of imaginative resource--unique, eerie, compelling." This is the original 15,000 word novelette, which was seriously abridged when joined with the sequel to make the novel The Moon Pool. A Dwarf-Stars SF Novelette. Not only was Merritt a monumental success in his lifetime (1884-1943), but also he remained the field's bestselling author for the next four decades, selling over 7 million copies of his work in the U.S. alone.

The Moon Pool is an amazing book. I read it a while back and wanted to read it again. I highly recommend the book but not this version. This version is so full of typos its nearly impossible to read.

Abraham Merritt is my favorite Sci-Fi author. His fictional worlds intrigue me and draw me in like no other. <br> The Moon Pool is a fantastic "Center to the Earth" tale with lots of action, romance and mystery. <br> And I'd like to figure out how I can get a hold of a Keth. I might need one some day. ;)

The shecat felt the enviorment begin to move under her paws, and her colour began to lower in contrast, "That is for you to find out. For the Clans to find out."
