Lot and Lot's Daughter

by Ward Moore
Release date: 1966
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, short stories

"Lot" (1953) and "Lot's Daughter" (1954) were written during Moore's heyday, following the publication of Bring the Jubilee. These are savage, unromantic tales that could not have been published even a few years earlier than they appeared, before new magazines like Anthony Boucher's The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction or H. L. Gold's Galaxy Science Fiction revolutionized science fiction in the early 1950's, placing less emphasis on technological prognostication and more emphasis, for the first time, on literary value, soft science, humor and satire. These stories helped to pave the way for generations of science fiction authors to follow.
