The Moon Pool & The Conquest Of The Moon Pool
Surrounded by crumbling Cyclopean ruins, the Moon Pool was a place of both horror and wonder. No Polynesian race had constructed it. Sacred yet accursed too, the spot was far older then recorded history. As was the luminous thing that dwelt within its unfathomable depths, a transcendent being summoned from its ancient slumber by the cold rays of the full moon. Against this vampiric force beyond human comprehension, a group of brave scientists and adventurers takes up the challenge and confronts the unholy power known only as the Shining One. But even they do not suspect that behind this awesome apparition lurks ever more stupendous wonders left over from a prehuman age when super-science and elder sorcery were indistinguishable from one another.

The Snake Mother
The novel concerns American mining engineer Nicholas Graydon. While searching for lost Inca treasure in South America, he encounters Suarra, handmaiden to the Snake Mother of Yu-Atlanchi. She leads Graydon to an abyss where Nimir, the Lord of Evil is imprisoned in a face of gold. While Graydon’s companions are transformed by the face into globules of gold on account of their greed, he is saved by Suarra and the Snake Mother whom he joins in their struggle against Nimir.
