Shuma Gorath (no hyphen) was a deity of the Thurian Age. His name was invoked by the wizard Rotath in a magical curse on his remains as Rotath lay dying from a wound inflicted by Kull. Shuma Gorath is associated with a collection of "ironbound books".[1]

As Shuma-Gorath, this deity was greatly expanded upon in comic books.[2]
