Ice City of the Gorgon

Ice City of the Gorgon, by Richard S. Shaver and Chester S. Geier, in Amazing, June 1948. Cover painting by Robert Gibson Jones. I read the story a couple weeks ago; it was a tolerable sci-fi adventure, which drew on Greek mythology. The piece held the subtlest echoes of both the Shaver Mystery and At the Mountains of Madness.


  1. Like the title, At the Mountains of Madness. I used to see a lot of these magazines as a teenager.

  2. As we've mentioned, a lot of those covers were high-quality, Ray.
