Illustrated by Alicia Austin.

From Wikipedia:

"Catherine Lucille Moore (1911–1987) was an American science fiction and fantasy writer, who most often used the pen name C L Moore. She was among the first women to write in either genre... Her first professional sales appeared in pulp magazines during the mid-1930s, including two significant series in Weird Tales. One features the rogue and adventurer Northwest Smith wandering through the Solar System; the other features the swordswoman/warrior Jirel of Joiry, one of the first female protagonists in sword-and-sorcery fiction. Both series are sometimes named for their lead characters. The most famous Northwest Smith story is "Shambleau", which was also Moore's first professional sale. It originally appeared in the November 1933 issue of Weird Tales,netting her $100, and later becoming a popular anthology reprint. Her most famous Jirel story is "Black God's Kiss", which was the cover story in the October 1934 issue of Weird Tales, described therein as "the weirdest story ever told". Moore's early stories were notable for their emphasis on the senses and emotions, which was unusual in genre fiction at the time... Black God's Shadow is a collection of fantasy short stories by C L Moore, first published in 1977. The stories feature Moore's character Jirel of Joiry and originally appeared in Weird Tales. The stories in this collection are:

* "Black God's Kiss"
