Prior to his marriage
to fellow science-fantasy writer Catherine L. Moore in 1940, Henry
Kuttner wrote stories of Lovecraftian horror, weird-menace "shudder"
tales, and thrilling adventure stories. But he also wrote
blood-n-thunder Space Opera stories in the vein of Edmond Hamilton (one
of young Kuttner's favorite authors) told with a rough-edge style
similar to Kuttner's protege Leigh Brackett.
THUNDER IN THE VOID is a massive collection of 16 vintage Space Opera stories selected from classic pulp magazines such as Weird Tales, Marvel Science Stories, Astonishing Stories, Super Science Stories, Super-Detective, and of course, Planet Stories. Most of the these are appearing in book form for the first time. An added bonus, Haffner Press is pleased to include an unpublished story by Kuttner, "The Interplanetary Limited."
