The Last Mimzy: Stories

No reviews
THE LAST MIMZY IS THE IDEAL INTRODUCTION TO AN AUTHOR WHO WAS AHEAD OF HIS TIME- AND WHOSE TIME HAS FINALLY COME. These seventeen classic stories create their own unique galaxy of vain, protective, and murderous robots; devilish angels; and warm and angry aliens. In " Mimsy Were the Borogoves" - the inspiration for New Line Cinema's major motion picture The Last Mimzy- a boy finds a discarded box containing a treasure trove of curious objects. When he and his sister begin to play with these trinkets- including a crystal cube that magnifies the unimaginable and a strange doll with removable organs that don't quite correspond to those of the human body- their parents grow concerned. And they should be. For the items are changing the way the children think and perceive the world around them- for better or worse. Ray Bradbury called Henry Kuttner " a man who shaped science fiction and fantasy in its most important years." Marion Zimmer Bradley and Roger Zelazny said he was a major inspiration. Kuttner was a writer's writer whose visionary works anticipated our own computer-controlled, machine-made world. At the time of his death at forty-two in 1958, he had created as many as 170 stories under more than a dozen pseudonyms- sometimes writing entire issues of science fiction magazines- in close collaboration with his wife, C. L. Moore. This definitive collection will be a revelation to those who wish to discover or rediscover Henry Kuttner, a true master of the universe.
