review Northwest of Earth The Complete Northwest Smith

Pearance of Northwest Smith the uick drawing outlaw of the spaceways who would become a science fiction archetype Here for the first time ever all thirteen of Northwest Smith's adventures have been compiled into one rowdy thrill ride as sure to inspire readers today as it was seventy years agoIn a time when women were marginalized in genre fiction Catherine Moor. This is a collection of short stories and it is because of that I actually finished If it had been a novel I would have given up because I would have known it would never improve The style was just too slow for me yes things happened but it was very slow 379 pages could have been 250 if not 200 I did not like most of the plots they did nothing for me Once you had read a couple you had an idea what was going to happenReally regret struggling on with it Not for me

    It's hard to believe that these stories were written in the 1930's except for the last one Now the concept of aliens on Venus Mars and a few other places is uite laughable today but taken for when they were written and as an alternate reality they really were uite fascinating Her world building was good We knew that NW was a smuggler and criminal from many key points but she never describes the man or his partner Venu
