Review: The Moon Pool

The Moon Pool
The Moon Pool by Abraham Merritt
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An interesting if dated sci-fi yarn from early in the 20th century, featuring both some proto-zombies and situations fleshed out further in the Shaver Mystery stories of the fifties. The narratiilve suffers from the early pulp problem of far too much recitative exposition, but the characters have some vim and heft to them. A fun read that might not be to everyone’s taste, considering modern SF sensibilities.
