The green-death started in Cend-Amrid, turning that once-lovely city into a plague spot, source of a deadly infection that swept Mars and turned men into mindless automatons. And Michael Kane had to find the cure or perish along with the rest of the adopted planet he loved.
The secret lay, he believed, within the untold power of the machines hidden in the vaults of the long-deal superscientific race that had once ruled the Red Planet. When he embarked on his expedition to find this buried hoard of knowledge, he expected little trouble. But others had been there before him, and he found that he faced problems of terifying proportions . . .
This is the third of Moorcock's Martian novels, an adventure the likes of which has not been seen since Edgar Rice Burrough laid down his pen.
By the author of the classic Elric of Nelnibone sword and sorcery series.
