Before there was Han Solo ...

... there was Northwest Smith. Paizo Publishing has collected all of C. L. Moore's Northwest Smith stories under a single cover as part of their excellent Planet Stories line. If you're a fan of pulp science fiction that, according to Fritz Leiber, is part Abraham Merritt, part Robert E. Howard, and part H. P. Lovecraft, you're in for a treat. This is a superb collection and Paizo, particularly Erik Mona, deserve a huge round of applause for making the literary roots of our hobby once again available to a new generation.

  1. I bought the first three Planet Stories releases, and loved them. I need to get around to picking up NW Smith and Elak, ASAP!
