Recent Reading: Under the Green Star

  • Under the Green Star, by Lin Carter, copyright 1972; DAW Books No. 30.

    This is a slight volume, with only 144 pages long, and is a member of the Sword & Planet genre. It is an enjoyable action tale, obviously influenced by Edgar Rice Burroughs's John Carter of Mars stories. While perhaps not the equal of the John Carter of Mars stories, it has attractions of its own.

While reading Flame & Crimson I was reminded of many Sword & Sorcery authors, and was introduced to many new ones. I decided that I needed to reread and read anew these authors. Along the way I broadened my ambit to include Sword & Planet authors, and have begun with this Lin Carter volume.
