“In the darkness, there came to Eric Nelson a summons and a warning – a summons to a land where beast and human walked alike, a warning of war and massacre strange and terrible!”

「『最後の惑星船の謎』の中で、スペース・オペラを完全に捨て去っている。チベットにある人類未踏の谷には、人間と動物がテレパシーで結びついている文明が発達を遂げていた。だから美しいエンシャーラは、自分の飼っている鷲のエイ、狼のターク、虎のクォールとつねに連絡しあっている。ところがル・ランの谷に冒険家エリック・ネルスンがやってきたために、この小さな世界は戦乱に巻きこまれる。ネルスンの肉体から精神が分離して狼の身体にはいりこみ、彼自身、狼の姿となって四本足の同胞の側に立って戦わねばならなくなる。だが、最後には再び人間の姿に戻り、エンシャーラの愛をかちえて、永久にル・ランの谷に住むことになるのだ。」 – ジャック・サドゥール著; 鹿島茂,鈴木秀治訳『現代SFの歴史』(早川書房, 1984.12) p. 189-190
