About the Author: Lin Carter Linwood Vrooman Carter was an American author of science fiction and fantasy, as well as an editor and critic He usually wrote as Lin Carter known pseudonyms include H P Lowcraft for an H P Lovecraft parody and Grail Undwin.Carter had a marked tendency toward self promotion in his work, frequently citing his own writings in his nonfiction to illustrate points and almost always including at least one of his own pieces in the anthologies he edited The most extreme instance is his novel Lankar of Callisto, which features Carter himself as the protagonist.As an author, he was a member of the all male literary banqueting club the Trap Door Spiders, which served as the basis of Isaac Asimov s fictional group of mystery solvers the Black Widowers Carter himself was the model for the Mario Gonzalo character He was also a member of the Swordsmen and Sorcerers Guild of America SAGA , a loose knit group of Heroic fantasy authors founded in the 1960s, some of whose work he anthologized in the Flashing Swords series Carter is most closely associated with fellow author L Sprague de Camp, who served as a mentor and collaborator and was a fellow member of both the Trap Door Spiders and SAGA.Carter served in Korea, after which he attended Columbia University He was a copywriter for some years before writing full time Carter resided in East Orange, New Jersey, in his later years, and drank and smoked heavily It may have been his smoking that gave him oral cancer in 1985 Only his status as a Korean War veteran enabled him to receive extensive surgery However, it failed to cure the cancer and left him disfigured.In the last year before his death, he had begun to reappear in print with a new book in his Terra Magica series, a long promised Prince Zarkon pulp hero pastiche, Horror Wears Blue, and a regular column for the magazine Crypt of Cthulhu 5 Despite these successes, Carter increased his alcohol intake, becoming a borderline alcoholic and further weakening his body His cancer resurfaced, spreading to his throat and leading to his death in Montclair, New Jersey, in 1988.
