Yes, that collection includes my favorite Moore story "The Bright Illusion".
Shambleau is one of Moore's stories about Northwest Smith. He's an interplanetary rogue, part Han Solo, part Indiana Jones. He is always stumbling over some extraterrestrial gothic horror somewhere.
The Northwest Smith stories are collected in Northwest of Earth.
