Master of Imaginative Fantasy Adventure
Creator of Tarzan®
and "Grandfather of American Science Fiction"
Hotep and his mother were locked in a secret dungeon Tarzan and the two
soldiers journeyed to retrieve the stolen treasure which was the price
of freedom for the mother and child. Swiftly they were trailed by the high
priest's men, who had vowed to their master that Tarzan should not return
alive. Once, while the Ape-man halted to refresh himself with cool water,
the pursuers forged ahead and prepared to set upon Tarzan and his companions
from ambush. But at the last moment, their coward hearts cautioned them
against bold attack.
Then said one to the others: "Let us pretend we are
his friends. So shall we approach near to him when he is at ease, and so
shall we slay him." They hailed Tarzan and said they were sent by the pharaoh
to aid in the quest for the treasure, and Tarzan received them as friends.
The party came at last to the forest atop the brigand's
cavern, and the Ape-man advised that the soldiers search the jungle for
outlaw sentinels. Tarzan himself crept to the edge of the ravine to survey
the entrance to the brigand's stronghold. But the three henchmen of the
high priest circled to the rear of him, and approached with drawn knives
to slay him and topple his body into the deep ravine!
