Linwood Vrooman Carter (1930-1988), was a writer and editor, mostly in the heroic fantasy genre. He started publishing science fiction in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in 1957 and planetary romances (like Edgar Rice Burroughs) in the 60s. This book, Sandalwood and Jade, was Carter's privately printed first book and contains his own illustrations.
