More wonderful storytelling from A. Merritt
. Like the previous Merritt's
I've posted, I tried to include a number of old pulp covers for art
. The title of this novel is The Ship of Ishtar.
"Ship of love, ship of doom. The goddess of love and beauty was adrift on an enchanted ocean in a magic world. The myriad forces of satanic evil plagued the vessel of the red-haired, passionate goddess. Only one man, John Kenton, the American adventurer, could save Ishtar's prietess from the black magic which divides her world from ours."
And still more:
"There are literary authors and there are story tellers. On all-too rare occasions one writer combines both aspects in his or her work. If A. Merritt
was not among that rarified class, he certainly ranked as a master story teller...The Ship of Ishtar
" is a charmingly old-fashioned, rip-roaring good read."
I hope you enjoy it.
