''his only full-length novel in book form, EXILES OF TIME (May 1940 Blue Book; 1949) is a dark-hued story about the end of the Age of Fire in Mu, told in a sometimes allegorical fashion; the protagonists, who have arrived in Mu via time travel, are unable to avert the cometary doom about to descend). It comprises the first of the extremely loose Squared Circle sequence, in which the three Ages preceding ours, as described in the Mayan Popul Vuh, are retold in sf terms'' (John Clute & David Langford.Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
