Summary

"The stuff of wonder." — Poul Anderson. An unlikely hero washes ashore on an island rich in the legends that populate literary history. The result is an adventure novel unlike any other, involving encounters with Robin Hood, Don Quixote, Beowulf, and the Green Knight, among other fictional luminaries. Larry Niven praised this unique fantasy world as "lifelike, but bigger than life ... and I went through it like a tourist in Paradise."

Author Biography

American author John Myers Myers (1906–88) wrote several adventure novels, including The Harp and the Blade and Out on Any Limb, as well as historic works such as The Alamo and Bravos of the West. Shortly after World War II, he settled in Tempe, Arizona, where he worked for a local paper and later taught at Arizona State University. Silverlock is his most famous work.
