(From the publisher):
Had Northwest Smith been able to forsee the future, he would not have shielded the frightened, scarlet-clad girl from the wild mob pursuing her through the streets of Lakkdarol, Earth's latest colony on Mars. "Shambleau! Shambleau!" the crowd cried with loathing and disgust, but Smith drove them off and took the exhausted girl to his quarters. There was no hair upon her face - neither brows nor lashes; but what lay hidden beneath the tight scarlet turban bound around her head?
So begins one of the strangest, and possibly the most famous, of stories by C.L. Moore - Shambleau.
