Book Description: "The Warlock of Sharrador" was written by well-known sci-fi author and famed comic book editor, Gardner F. Fox. For unremembered eons the god had slept. For a million years it had quested through the star worlds of its dreams, until it lived only as a faint legend in the race memories of mankind. But now the time had come for man to recall its name, and to worship it once again. Noorlythin arose and went out into the world of men-with his robot minions. The High Mor wanted all Earthers dead...including Kael McCanahan's father and the rest of their crew. With the flame-tressed Flaith, McCanahan fled through filthy sewers and the dusty desert-only to be confronted by Noorlythin. But McCanahan's father left him a valuable legacy...the means to destroy Noorlythin, and his minions once and for all. If only McCanahan could keep it away from his enemies, and rescue the lovely Flaith.
