Three essential works from one of the formative voices of post-war science fiction.

From the vaults of The SF Gateway, the most comprehensive digital library of classic SFF titles ever assembled, comes an ideal introduction to the fantastic work of one of the Golden Age's most influential writers, Henry Kuttner.

Henry Kuttner sold his first story Weird Tales in early 1936 and was, with his wife, fellow writer C. L. Moore, a regular contributor to John W. Campbell's Astounding Science Fiction. He and Moore collaborated for most of the 1940s and 1950s, but his career was tragically cut short in 1958, when he suffered a fatal heart attack. This omnibus contains two of his major novels, which have been out of print for many years - Fury and Mutant - and collection The Best of Harry Kuttner.

About the Author

Henry Kuttner was born in Los Angeles, in 1915. As a young man he worked for the literary agency of his uncle, Laurence D'Orsay, before selling his first story, The Graveyard Rats, to Weird Tales in early 1936. In 1940 Kuttner married fellow writer C. L. Moore, whom he met through the 'Lovecraft Circle', a group of writers and fans who corresponded with H. P. Lovecraft. During the Second World War, they were regular contributors to John W. Campbell's Astounding Science Fiction, and collaborated for most of the 1940s and 1950s, publishing primarily under the pseudonyms Lewis Padgett and Lawrence O'Donnell. In 1950 he began studying at the University of Southern California, graduating in 1954. He was working towards his masters degree but died of a heart attack in 1958, before it was completed.

"His reputation for fast-moving and colourful SF writing is unmatched by anyone in Britain." Michael Moorcock, author, Elric: The Stealer of Souls
