*Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: Thongor was Lin Carter’s most influential creation. Written with Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E Howard in mind, it revived interest in Sword And Sorcery as a genre. Marvel even ran a comic (Creatures On The Loose) featuring Thongor in the 1970’s. We have the original sextet of Thongor novels, mainly in 2nd UK PB (a final book, Young Thongor was added in 2012). Thongor Fights The Pirates Of Tarakus is the only exception, being a 1st UK PB. Most are in grades VG or VG/FN, although unfortunately the first book of the series, The Wizard Of Lemuria, looks as if it’s had as many adventures as the hero, being a FA copy.
