''as a writer of exotic fantasy and sf, Hannes Bok produced only six short stories and three solo novels. In all three novels, ''Starstone World'' (1942 Science Fiction Quarterly), The Sorcerer's Ship (1942 Unknown; 1969) and BEYOND THE GOLDEN STAIR (1948 Startling Stories as ''The Blue Flamingo''; revised 1970) the hero is transported via a portal to an Otherworld where magic works. These tales are stronger in imagery and wordplay than in plot or characterization'' (Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
