Naturalist bohemian academic pagan revivalist and writer Margaret St Clair 1911 1995 is largely forgotten today She began publishing her fiction in the late 1940 s in the declining pulp science fiction market and continued to be featured in the same magazines through the 50 s and early 60 s Around 1956 she published her first sf novel The Green ueen and would go onto write another seven novels until 1973 None of her novels or short story collections three are available in print The Best of Margaret St Clair was issued in 1985 by a small press in Chicago As I read through these stories I was struck by how many I d read in other collections while growing up Child of the Void was featured in Tomorrow s Children 1967 and The Man Who Sold Rope to the Gnoles in Alfred Hitchock s Monster Museum1965 Brenda first published in Weird Tales was adapted for an episode of Rod Serling s Night Gallery not that good but worth seeing if you ve read the storyEvery story in this collection is pure gold Most have the snap biting ending which turns sf conventions of the 50 s on their head Most of them have aged very well The Man Who Sold Rope to the Gnoles works as a wicked satire of modern sales techniues and of Lord Dunsany s fantasy stories Short in the Chest has a robotic psychologist giving disastrous advice to the military My own favourite in this collection The New Ritual works as a woman s interest story a pastoral and fantasy fictionThe truly sad issue is the lack of any interest in her writing outside a few fans Here s a woman who wrote countless stories and novels over a twenty year span then ceased her output Why Writer s block Health issues It would be good to knowPosted by Tim Mayer at 915 PM

The Best of Margaret St Clair is a short story collection by an early pulp sci fi writer spanning the late 1940s through the early 1970s The collection is uneven I really loved some stories while others felt dated and others just left me with raised eyebrows wondering what the heck was that Overall though I really enjoyed it St Clair doesn t seem overly concerned about genre boundaries and her stories are weird tales than strictly sci fi blending horror fantasy and speculative fiction and I found this to be uite charming She talks about sex and sexuality frankly than I would have expected during the era when she was writing and I do think her being a woman writing in a male dominated genre comes through in small touches particularly in Short in the Chest though it never approaches an obvious feminist message If you like genre bending short stories and classic pulp sci fi you may appreciate this overlooked author

    E–pub/E–book (The Best of Margaret St Clair) I came to St Clair by way of Sign of the Labrys and The Shadow People which were both extremely interesting and flawed works and I had heard that her shorter fiction was an entirely different matterWhat I found here is a set of extremely polished well crafted and diverse works Only the last two An Old Fashioned Bird Christmas and W
