The Hand Of Zei
By L. Sprague de Camp
Covers by Ed Emshwiller
"Twenty-five degrees north of the equator on the planet Krishna lies the Banjao Sea, the largest body of water on this planet. And in the Sea is found the Sunqar, home of legend and mystery.
"Here under the scorching rays of the hot high sun, the beaked galleys of Dur and the tubby roundships of Jazmurian slowly rot in the unbreaakable grip of a vast floating continent of sea vine. Even the violent storms of the Krishnan sub-tropics no more than riffle the surface of this immense floating swamp. Nothing, once caught in this web of weed, can escape . . ."
Barely had Dirk Barnevelt written these words as part of a publicity campaign for his boss, than he learned that he would shortly find himself isolated in the middle of this terrible place on a barbaric planet without the aid of scientific equipment, surrounded by deadly dangers, with an unfulfilled mission and the dire necessity of making an escape he had just declared impossible.
This Is actually one long novel (read Search first!). both covers are clean, still glossy, but each is crinkled, with edge and corner wear. Spine has rubbing along one edge and one end. Pages are browned. Binding is tight and square.
