From Midwest Book Review:

"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. For this particular edition, the artistic talents of Ned Dameron have been obtained for twenty illustrations, most in full color, many as double-spread to complement this wonderful tale. The images perfectly mesh with Merritt's fantasy."
