About the Author:

Henry Kuttner was born in Los Angeles, California in 1915. His father, Henry Kuttner (1863 1920), whose parents, the bookseller Naphtally Kuttner (1829 1904) and Amelia Bush, had come from Prussia and lived in San Francisco since 1859; the parents of his mother, Annie Lewis (1879 1954), were from Great Britain. Kuttner grew up in relative poverty following the death of his father. As a young man he worked for the literary agency of his uncle, Laurence D'Orsay, in Los Angeles before selling his first story, "The Graveyard Rats", to Weird Tales in early 1936.
Kuttner was known for his literary prose and worked in close collaboration with his wife, C. L. Moore. They met through their association with the "Lovecraft Circle", a group of writers and fans who corresponded with H. P. Lovecraft. Their work together spanned the 1940s and 1950s and most of the work was credited to pseudonyms, mainly Lewis Padgett and Lawrence O'Donnell. Both freely admitted that one reason they worked so much together was because his page rate was higher than hers. L. Sprague de Camp, who knew Kuttner and Moore well, has stated that their collaboration was so intensive that, after a story was completed, it was often impossible for either Kuttner or Moore to recall who had written which portions. According to de Camp, it was typical for either partner to break off from a story in mid-paragraph or even mid-sentence, with the latest page of the manuscript still in the typewriter. The other spouse would routinely continue the story where the first had left off. They alternated in this manner as many times as necessary until the story was finished.
In 2007, New Line Cinema released a feature film loosely based on the Lewis Padgett short story "Mimsy Were the Borogoves" under the title The Last Mimzy. Haffner Press has recently published DETOUR TO OTHERNESS as by Kuttner & Moore and TERROR IN THE HOUSE: THE EARLY KUTTNER, VOLUME ONE.

Review:

An award winning author who inspired whole generations of writers, Henry Kuttner was well established as one of the most popular and successful science fiction word smiths beginning with the genre's 'Golden Age' of pulp magazines in the 1930s through the halcyon era of 1950s SciFi. Now sixteen of his best yarns have been rescued from literary obscurity through the deft editorship of Stephen Haffner and made available to an appreciative readership as a 612-page, hardbound compendium. Ranging from 'Raider of the Spaceways'; 'The Time Trap'; and 'War-Gods of the Void'; to 'Soldiers of Space'; 'Crypt-City of the Deathless One', and 'The Eyes of Thar', "Thunder In The Void is a science fiction fan's delight. Of special note is the inclusion of a recently recovered short story 'The Interplanetary Limited', which was written during the author's teenage years. Enhanced with the inclusion of a complete Henry Kuttner bibliography (which includes books which he co-authored with C. L. Moore, and another one co-authored with Arthur K. Barnes), "Thunder In The Void" is highly recommended reading for Henry Kuttner's legions of fans and a welcome addition to personal, academic, and community library science fiction collections. --Midwest Book Review
