Reviews for Monster
Guest chapter 1 . 5/28/2016
Excellent. I read this immediately after reading the original, and it is like Italian ices for dessert after a heavy meal. Refreshing. I like very much that your use of language is clear and simple in contrast to Moore's rich perfumed purple prose. Thank you.

Wow-a "Shambleau" story! I read this when I was 13, way back in 1966, when I was discovering SF/ Dad had the original pulp magazine it appeared in, still barely hanging on to life before crumbling away like all pulps... Anyway-intriguing. Reminds me a bit of the novel "Grendel", Beowulf-from-the-monster's-point-of-view... Indeed-who is the monster, anyway? A neat little story, and it's fun to see a C. L. Moore used in a fan fiction piece. Would love to see a companion piece to "Bright Illusion", or "No Woman Born", or most of all "Judgment Night", one of the best SF novels ever written...thanks for sharing this.

Good story, thanks!

Well, you actually made me feel sad for the other Shambleau. I read the C.L. Moore story ages ago and was pleased to see someone write a fanfic for it. As I remember, Northwest told Yarol that he'd TRY to resist another one of them ... perhaps there is an opportunity for Grey Eyes to have revenge? Thanks for your work!

I don't know which I find more enjoyable - that you know C.L. Moore or that you've written a great fanfic about the first NW Smith story I ever read. Yup, I call myself after THAT jirel and have for almost 30 years. Started out as an SCA name and became a computer name.
