Zarkon and his Omega Crew zoom into death-defying action!
Dead men. One after another. Rich. Famous. Powerful. And all defenseless against the invisible occult force that struck them down and left no trace of its satanic identity and devilish design.
The police were powerless. The governments of the world were struck with fear and trembling. And only Prince Zarkon, the Ultimate Man, and his devoted Omega Crew, could hope to stem the bloody flood of terror about to engulf all mankind.
But even the great Zarkon and his miracle men might have met their match, as the defenders of Good moved into shattering showdown with an eerie Empire of awesome Evil.
Lin Carter (1930-1988)
Lin Carter is the working name of US author and editor Linwood Wrooman Carter, most of whose work of any significance was done in the field of Heroic Fantasy, an area of concentration he went some way to define in his critical study of relevant texts and techniques, Imaginary Worlds (1973). Born in St Petersburg, Florida, Carter was an avid reader of science fiction and fantasy in his youth. He was also quite active in fandom. Carter served in the United States Army between 1951 and 1953, after which he attended Columbia University. He is best known for editing the Ballantine Adult Fantasy series in the 1970s, which introduced readers to many overlooked classics of the fantasy genre, including James Branch Cabell, Lord Dunsany, Hope Mirrlees and Clark Ashton Smith. He began publishing sf with "Masters of Metropolis" for the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in 1957, with Randall Garrett, and the story "Uncollected Works" (1965) was a finalist for the annual Nebula Award for Best Short Story. He resided in East Orange, New Jersey in his final years, and died in nearby Montclair, New Jersey.
