Moonfoam and Sorceries is a collection of stories by artist, author, and publisher Stanley Mullen. In 1959 Mullen won the Hugo Award for his short story “Space to Swing a Cat.” Although Mullen yielded a large body of short stories, he only provided three full-length books during his career. Mullen was frequently published in Planet Stories, as well as a number of other pulp magazines of the time.
Mullen was deeply entrenched in the sci-fi community, not only as a content creator but as a producer. Mullen was the owner of Gorgon Press, a small press publisher that he instituted in 1948. Mullen released a short-lived fanzine named The Gorgon, after his company, which only released 11 issues in total. Along with his literary works, Mullen was a celebrated artist, and today has a series of painting as a part of a permanent collection at the Denver Art Museum.
