C. L. Moore

(January 24, 1911 — April 4, 1987)

A US pro writer who made her name int he 30s writing for Weird Tales with many classic stories such as "Shambleau" and the Jirel of Joiry series. She soon als began writing for Astounding, and after she married fellow pro Henry Kuttner formed a writing team so close that they themselves could not tell who wrote what. (The byline on stories said nothing about who wrote it.) They also frequently used the pseudonyms Lewis Padgett and Lawrence O'Donnell. Other classic stories included "No Woman Born", "Clash by Night" and "Vintage Season".

After Kuttner died of a heart attack in 1958 Moore never returned to writing SF instead, writing scripts for television shows. In 1958 she stopped writing entirely. She was an active member of the Tom and Terri Pinckard Science Fiction literary salon.

She was GoH at Denvention Two in 1981.
