THE classic of fantasy, and a fun, fun read. I read this when I was in my 20s. Today, it's still a great read. Merritt was - in my opinion - a literate writer of fantasy. I've included 3 covers to help with the text. In color, the covers are lovely.

To quote:

"The Face in the Abyss is a classic from a "golden age" of science fiction. A brilliant tale filled with weird imagination, marvelous writing, horror, beauty, and it may well be called the most "visual" book ever written for the world of fantasy. The Face in the Abyss is a grand book with a grand cast of characters. Visualize a monstrous head that cries tears of gold, locked deep in a cavern out of time forgotten. Consider also the incredible, Snake Mother, who is both human and reptilian, and her battle with the thing called the Lord of Evil."

Give this one a shot.

I hope you enjoy it.
