"Lot" and "Lot's Daughter" 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 1950s, placing less emphasis on technological prognostication and more emphasis, for the first time, on literary value, soft science, humor, and satire. These stories helped pave the way for generations of science-fiction authors to follow.
