On Earth, life held for him only the fate of a recluse - confined to daydreams and the lore of ancient wonders but apparently destined never to share them - until he found the formula that let him cross space to the world of the Green Star. There, appearing in the body of a fabled hero, he is to experience all that his heroic fantasies had yearned for. A princess to be saved, an invader to be thwarted, and otherworldly monsters to be faced! A thrilling adventure in the grand tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs, as only Lin Carter can tell it! This edition includes an afterword by Lin Carter.
