    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 heroid fantasies had yearned for. A princess to be saved... an invader to be thwarted... and otherworldly monsters to be faced!

    An interplanetary adventure in the grand tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs.

    To him, Earth was a prison of the mind and body. Only on the world of the Green Star would he walk - in the borrowed body of a primitive youth.

    Nice audio production

    He was Karn, the savage of the sky-high trees. He was protector and defender of the princess Niamh, whose very city was lost in the jungles of the world under the Green Star. But he was also an Earthman, whose helpless, crippled body lay in suspended animation in a guarded mansion in New England. It was his alien mind that drove Karn through perils that no other would dare. But dare he must - for though that alien planet was replete with dangers and treachery, there was a cause to be won and a love to be rescued!

    Decent but predictable ending
