Synopsis: From the front flap of the Phantasia Press HB edition: "In 1939 John W. Campbell, Jr. wrote Jack Williamson, inviting him to contribute material to a new fantasy magazine to be called UNKNOWN. It was to be a unique experiment in the field of pulp fiction and Campbell was to personally mold its creation. The Reign of Wizardry was inspired by this letter. Magic and sorcery became Jack Williamson's new challenge. Minoan Crete is the setting of this epic tale of black magic and the forces of evil. The pirate Theseus, alone, stood against the dark powers of Minos and his wizards. Protected by three unconquerable walls, the master of evil enslaved and terrified the ancient world. The struggle of one man against overwhelming odds has made this adventure a true fantasy classic."
