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.

    I Also Recommend:

    The Shinning One!

    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. ;)

    great book...but...

    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.
