Terry Carr is best known for his professional work editing science fiction novels and anthologies. Prior to that he was a publisher of science fiction fanzines and over the course of his career also wrote two novels ("Warlord of Kor" and "Cirque") and a short fiction collection ("The Light at the End of the Universe.") From "Warlord of Kor": "Horng sat opposite the tiny, fragile creature who held a microphone, its wires attached to an interpreting machine. He blinked his huge eyes slowly, his stiff mouth fumblingly forming words of a language his race had not used for thirty thousand years. 'Kor was . . . is . . . God . . . Knowledge.' He had tried to convey this to the small creatures who had invaded his world, but they did not heed. Their ill-equipped brains were trying futilely to comprehend the ancient race memory of his people."
