CLOCK, Herbert


CLOCK, Herbert
(1890-1979)
   US writer, apparently the senior collaborator with Eric Boetzel on The Light in the Sky (1929), an sf tale set in a LOST WORLD under Mexico, where Aztecs retreated after the genocidal onslaught of the Spanish and have constructed, over the centuries, a culture dominated by high science, telepathy, and - apparently - human sacrifice. The immortal Aztec genius behind the throne is in fact benevolent, and plans to benefit humankind; but the usual terminal DISASTER puts an end to this.
