A classic of science fiction, Dwellers in the Mirage weaves a powerful web of fantasy against a background of lost civilizations. Beneath the shimmering surface of a lake cradled in the desolate Alaskan mountains, the people of the Shadowed-Land waited for Dwayanu, the warrior hero who will bring back to the world the worship of Khalk'ru, the cruel, destructive octopus god whose appetites must be appeased by human sacrifice. When Lief Langdon accidentally discovers the people beneath the valley floor, they welcome him as the reincarnation of Dwayanu. Slowly Langdon's personality is possessed by the pride and blood-lust of his warrior ancestor until he is driven by forces beyond his understanding or control to serve the evil power of Khalk'ru.
