Chemical symbol... atomic number... atomic weight...
Scientific terms for gold... but science can't begin to explain the mystery and magic of gold.
It was gold that lured the 'Secret Legion' - as oddly mixed a group of adventures as any song or story - into the world's most treacherous desert.
And gold they found - a golden man, and exotic golden woman, a huge golden tiger, and an eerie golden snake.
Gold brought them together... gold made them enemies in a battle to the death... gold held the key to the mysterious forces that assailed them.
Jack Williamson, alchemist with words, spins a rare web of adventure, fantasy and science... a gem from the golden age of Weird Tales, now available in book form for the first time.
