Third in Carter's Zarkon: Lord of the Unknown series-and the idea is starting to pall. The Nemesis of Evil and Invisible Death (both 1975) had a certain museum-piece interest, with their painstaking reconstruction of the stylistic and narrative gimmicks of '30's pulp (apparently an in genre, these days).

Lin Carter (1930-1988) was a noted American fantasy and science fiction author, anthologist, and critic who wrote over fifty novels, compiled over 25 anthologies, and authored multiple critical studies of the science fiction and fantasy genres. Best known for his Callisto and Thongor series of novels, Carter made a name for himself as a latter-day pulp author, imitating the successful adventure tale formulas made fashionable by earlier writers such as Edgar Rice Burroughs (Tarzan of the Apes; The Mars/Barsoom series), Robert E. Howard (Conan the Barbarian), and Lester Dent (Doc Savage).

Great story in a great series!
Another classic Lin Carter tale. A forgotten author at his best
I am sure that when most people read these astounding adventures of Prince Zarkon, that they see the ghost of Robeson's Doc Savage moving through the pages. (Though to me Zarkon seems a more original, believable character than Doc Savage.) But when I read Volcano Ogre (note to Amazon.com - I believe the word in the title is "Ogre" not "Orge"!) I think back to those great Scooby Doo cartoons I used to watch as a kid. Scooby and the gang were always battling some villan who was masquerading as a mysterious monster. Volcano Ogre has the same feel, though of course Lin Carter's novel has a lot more depth than a 1 hour cartoon. Doc Menlo is like the brainy Valerie, only more so; and Scorchy can be likened to Shaggy. Of course, no cartoon character compares to the towering literary figure which is Prince Zarkon. I guess you've got to read this book - and I highly recommend it - to appreciate what Lin Carter has crafted here.
