While attending a Great Books course, Williamson learned that Henryk Sienkiewicz had created one of his works by taking The Three Musketeers of Alexandre Dumas and pairing them with John Falstaff of William Shakespeare. Williamson took this idea into science fiction with The Legion of Space. The Blue Spot, and Entropy Reversed (Released Entropy) (2000; both from Astounding, 1937). The Collected Stories of Jack Williamson, Volume Three, Wizard's Isle (2000). Wolves of Darkness Vol. 2 : The Collected Stories of Jack Williamson.

The darkness, for a time, had been intense, very faintly relieved by the ghostly gleam of the snow. But the clouds had lightened somewhat, and the light of the rising moon shone through them, casting eldritch shadows of silver on the level snow. Through the disk of darkness. Two more carried in red-dripping jaws the lax gray bodies of coyotes. And one of the women bore upon her shoulder the remains of a huge gray wolf.

Writing as Jack Williamson his first published story was ‘The Metal Man’ and it cover-featured on the December 1928 issue of Amazing Stories. He followed this up with many other cover-featured stories ‘Through the Purple Cloud’ (May 1931 Wonder Stories) his novella ‘Wolves of Darkness’ (January 1932 Strange Tales), ‘The Pigmy Planet’ (February 1932 Astounding Stories), ‘The Moon Era’ (February 1932 Wonder Stories), ‘Wizard's Isle’ (a novelette in the June 1934 Weird Tales). As Nils O. Sonderlund, he published ‘The Angel from Hell’ in the December 1939 Marvel Tales

Volume II. Complete and Unabridged. Then, when he had finished, he reached for his glass, and in two short swallows he tipped the wine down his throat and turned immediately to resume his conversation with Louise Schofield.

Volume II. Mike saw it all. I was conscious of him sitting there, very still, containing himself, looking at his guest. His round jovial face seemed to loosen slightly and to sag, but he contained himself and was still and said nothing. Soon the maid came forward with the second course. This was a large roast beef.

Comments:

Auau
This is a handsome book, well-made, with colorful reproductions on the endpapers of the covers of the old pulp magazines in which the stories originally appeared. Some of these grand old pulps can still be found on auction sites and in second-hand book stores, and they're worth collecting, not only for the stories but also for the wonderful illustrations. The quality of this book and the early Jack Williamson tales make this volume worth its rather high price.
I wanted particularly to read the short novelette Wolves of Darkness, because I'd heard it was the precursor werewolf tale to his later classic Darker Than You Think, and I was not disappointed! Williamson has the skill to capture one's interest right from the first sentence of a story and hold it, drawing one in to read on and discover the mystery and wonder that follow. This book is a must-have for all Jack Williamson fans and all science-fiction/horror fans in general!

Jack Williamson has the skill to capture one's interest right from the first sentence of a story and hold it, drawing one in to read on and discover the mystery and wonder that follow. He has a very visual style and in the title story Wolves of Darkness he provides a scientific explanation for lycanthropy instead of the usual supernatural rationale. He also describes a process that sounds very similar to the way that micro-processors are made today! And this was in 1932, some 20 years before even the transistor was developed, let alone micro-chips! When this story was written even the vacuum tube was still a rather new thing.
Williamson writes in the pulp fiction style of the day, which is somewhat repetitive and tiresome at times, but since the going rate for a pulp magazine story back then was a half cent a word or less, it's understandable why an author would "flesh out" a tale as much as possible! Even so, these stories still hold up well.
This is a handsome volume, well-made, with colorful reproductions on the endpapers of the covers of the old pulp magazines in which the stories originally appeared. This book is a must-have for all Jack Williamson fans and all science-fiction/horror fans in general!
