Editorial Reviews

Clark Ashton Smith’s unique intertwining of science fiction, fantasy, and horror is featured in this anthology of his Captain Volmar stories. William Neenan ("Doxford", from TV’s Sleepy Hollow) creates these adventures in space, bringing voice and imagery to tales of a hero who "lives" somewhere between Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan of history and Captain Nemo of Jules Verne’s fiction. The volume includes the previously unpublished novellette Red World of Polaris, as well as "The Magellan of the Constellations", "Marooned in Andromeda", and "A Captivity in Serpens".
