42900 Kar Kaballa/Tower Of Medusa VG-
By George H. Smith
Kar Kaballa was the new king of the Gogs and
the rumour was that he would lead his barbaric
cannibalistic band of Northern nomads down on a
mad crusade against the civilized nations of the
world. Cultured people found this improbable-but
they were soon to know better.
Their weapons were good, about as good as you
could get in a Victorian army, which was what the
period was. But there was a traveler in town with a
weapon he said was better, an odd chap with a thing
called a Gatling Gun from a country nobody had ever
heard of, called the United States Of America.
Tower Of The Medusa
By Lin Carter
"You are the most notorious and celebrated jewel-thief in the Near Stars. It was Kirin of Tellus who stole the Nine Diamonds of Pharvis from the dragon-guarded citadel beside the Flaming Sea. It was you who carried off the tiara of the Queen of Zodah, a trifle composed of eleven thousand matched fire-rubies, worth an emperor's ransom . . . I want you to steal something for me. I am a doctor of the Minor Thaumaturgies and I am come from Trevelon.
"The jewel we are after is called the Medusa. It is concealed within a structure called the Iron Tower which lies amidst the barren wastes of the Uplands of Pelizon, guarded by a maze of traps and dadfalls. We have, over the centuries, and at frightful labor, obtained very precise and complete blueprints of the Tower . . . There will be no danger. No danger at all . . ."
The softly modulated voice of the starship interrupted the conversation. "I have been under attack for the past 12.03 seconds," the ship observed calmly.
Covers are clean and bright, though each has a deep reading crease and light edge wear. A bit of dirt on the spine, and one horizontal wrinkle. Pages are browning. Binding is tight and square.
