This review is from: The Dark World (Planet Stories) (Paperback)
Kuttner, along with his wife and frequent collaborator CL Moore, was one of the stars of 40's & 50's science fiction. Only his death at the age of 43 prevented him from becoming known as one of the greats. He had a range of styles but this short novel is Kuttner at his most vigorous in a pulp fantasy style adventure which is clearly a source of inspiration for Roger Zelazny's Amber series. Here, a brooding ex-soldier finds that he is really from another dimension. Problem is, he isn't the good guy, he's the villain.

This is a nice slightly over-sized paperback edition with a clumsy but appropriately garish cover. There's also a nice introduction by Piers Anthony. If you like this then the imprint Planet Stories has more by Kuttner, Moore, and Leigh Brackett which you'd probably enjoy.
