The Castle of Iron
by L. Sprague de Camp and Fletcher Pratt
An awesome world of mythology was what Harold Shea found himself in. Hardly the place for a stolid scientist such as he. But he was human, too, so it was no wonder he enjoyed the romantic role of adventurer amidst bizarre hippogriffs— and enchanting, seductive women.
The whole whacky affair began with Reed Chambers, the psychologist. He had a theory that there were many possible worlds existing side by side in time, separated from us only by limitations of the mind. Use of the formula he developed plunged Harold Shea into one of them on a new life of danger.
Despite all its familiarity, this other world was fantastically alien. For in it magic was a natural phenomenon, as acceptable as the law of gravity!
L. Sprague de Camp and Fletcher Pratt have been acclaimed as the best team ever to write science fantasy. Called by critics "incomparable collaborators", they have again scored a literary bulls-eye with another typically exciting and amusing novel.
Here is an irresistible story of a fabulous world—certain to delight any reader with the sparkling magic of its wit and humor.
