About the Book

Edmond Hamilton's "The World with a Thousand Moons" is a gripping science fiction short story. This story transports readers to a brilliantly conceived extraterrestrial realm brimming with mysterious and diverse living types. The story takes place on Venus, a distant planet where humanity has constructed a research station. The unusual conditions of the planet, including permanent cloud cover and a plethora of moons, have resulted in a world of eternal twilight. Despite the harsh conditions, scientists on Venus uncover a stunning discovery—a living species unlike any found on Earth. The "venusian," as this one-of-a-kind entity is known, possesses the extraordinary capacity to envision entire worlds into existence. Other monsters generated from the venusian's imagination fill these dreamworlds. The story is told through the eyes of a scientist named Blair, who is fascinated by the venusian's creative capacity. Blair begins to comprehend the huge ramifications for human understanding of the world as he explores deeper into the secrets of the venusian's talents. Finally, the novel delves into issues of creativity, creation, and the infinite possibilities of life beyond Earth. Edmond Hamilton's work deftly blends elements of awe and inquiry, enabling readers to consider the vast possibilities of otherworldly existence.

About Author

Edmond Hamilton

Edmond Moore Hamilton (October 21, 1904 – February 1, 1977) was a mid-twentieth-century American science fiction writer. He was born in Youngstown, Ohio, and raised in adjacent New Castle, Pennsylvania. He graduated from high school and enrolled in Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, at the age of 14, but dropped out when he was 17. Edmond Hamilton's career as a science fiction writer began with the publication of his short tale "The Monster God of Mamurth" in the August 1926 edition of Weird Tales, which is today considered a classic journal of alternative fiction. Hamilton rapidly established himself as a key member of Farnsworth Wright's amazing circle of Weird Tales writers, which included H. P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard. From 1926 to 1948, Weird Tales published 79 works of fiction by Hamilton, making him one of the magazine's most prolific contributors. Hamilton became friends and associates with several Weird Tales veterans, including E. Hoffmann Price and Otis Adelbert Kline; most famously, he had a 20-year connection with near contemporary Jack Williamson, as Williamson recounts in his 1984 autobiography Wonder's Child.
