Four Science Fiction classics of worlds future, past and far away
This collection of Edgar Rice Burroughs's Science Fiction adventures will not disappoint the author's many enthusiastic aficionados. It includes four tales which further explore his familiar themes, each with more than its fair share of rollicking adventure, high risk escapes, beautiful women and exotic creatures. The first story, The Monster Men is a combination of the Frankenstein's monster concept and the dangerous pursuit of the creation of a master race of human beings. This time the scientist is drawn to the jungles of Borneo to add exotic colour to his perilous endeavour. In The Lost Continent, the people of Pan-America set out to discover Europe and find the British Isles derelict, overgrown and populated by ferocious denizens of the wild from this age and times long past. Beyond the Farthest Star will please fans of the Carter and Carson novels as once again a fighting man of Earth is transported to a far away planet only to become embroiled in its own wars. Finally, in The Resurrection of Jimber-Jaw a primeval man is brought into the modern world with catastrophic results. This is a bumper crop of ERB's 'stand alone' science fiction brought together by Leonaur into a single satisfying edition-essential!
