Three tales of Tarzan at Point Station – a remote English
outpost near the Waziri homelands – set during the advent of World War
II. With greater European intrusion to the Bolongo River Basin, Tarzan
becomes embroiled in increasingly dangerous events as cultures clash.
1] Tarzan and the “Fountain of Youth”: Searching for
the missing son of a friend, Tarzan encounters agents of an unscrupulous
pharmaceutical company exploiting jungle resources for its own profit.
2] Tarzan and the Cross of Vengeance: A team of archaeologists
make a groundbreaking discovery; a group of well-meaning but naive American
missionaries arriving to convert the native tribes; and a ruthless band
of men with a dark purpose stir up a heady mix of challenges for Tarzan,
fomenting an intertribal war that only he can stop.
3] Tarzan the Conqueror: When the Third Reich invades
Africa to exploit the land for riches and enslave the native populations
in labor camps, Tarzan leads the tribes in an un-precedented tribal resistance.

This is a seminal book as it introduces four generations
of Tarzan, including Tarzan’s great grandson, Jonathan, who is unsure of
his place in the Tarzan Legacy. Also in this novel, Tarzan’s African estate
is demolished and many people are killed by an unknown guerrilla militia;
Tarzan’s son, Jack, is accused of Dian Fossey’s murder and is sought by
the authorities; and Tarzan’s grandson, Jackie – who runs the behemoth
Greystoke Trust – is accused and imprisoned for crimes against the Crown
– a capital offense. This compelling tale, set in the 1980s, chronicles
the family’s epic battle for survival.
A Soldier of Poloda
Further Adventures Beyond the Farthest Star
by Lee Strong
Cover Art: Chris Peuler / Interior Illustrations: Earl
Like fellow Earthman, Tangor from the story Beyond the
Farthest Star, American OSS officer Thomas Randolph is mysteriously teleported
to a foreign planet where he lands in the center of a 100-year war that
mirrors the Allied Powers’ struggle against Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich.
Unlike Tangor, Randolph – now Tomas Ran – finds himself behind enemy lines
where he gains a first-hand view of the inner workings of the corrupt Kapar
empire. Will Tomas, using his OSS skills, be able to devise a plan to escape
with the beautiful Unisan prisoner, Loris Kiri, that will allow them to
join her countrymen in their struggle against the Kapars?
American novelist Edgar Rice Burroughs debuted the world
of Poloda in the pulp story Beyond the Farthest Star in 1940 just
as Hitler’s Nazis marched across Europe and the Imperial Japanese extended
their reach across the South Pacific. Burroughs’ youthful idealism regarding
the nobility of America’s previous war efforts had given way to a mature
perspective of the savagery of combat that stains every battlefield. Burroughs’
deeply-held views are reflected in this tale about a planet ravaged by
100 years of conflict as the nation of Unis devotes its entire existence
to the struggle of freedom against tyranny.

SWORDS AGAINST THE MOON MEN
A sequel to Edgar Rice Burroughs’ THE MOON MAID
by Christopher Paul Carey
Cover art by Chris Peuler and interior illustrations
by Mark Wheatley
Hailed by author and science fiction scholar Richard
Lupoff as a "masterpiece of science fiction" and a "pioneer work of the
modern school of social extrapolation in science fiction," Edgar Rice Burroughs’
classic lunar trilogy—The Moon Maid, The Moon Men, and The Red Hawk—tells
the generational tale of humanity’s fight for freedom against alien conquerors
from the Moon. The hero, Julian, finds his soul perpetually reincarnated
in the bodies of his successive grandsons, fated to confront—down through
the centuries —the vicious Kalkars who have subjugated Earth.
The epic saga continues in this by Christopher
Paul Carey novel, Swords Against the Moon Men.

Northern Russia, 1924: The Red Army is eliminating those
who resist the fledgling Soviet government. At The Battle of the
Plutonian Plain, the White Russian forces, aided by wily American Edgar
Rice Burroughs, do not fall, instead retreating into the dangers of Pellucidar.
Comrade Trotsky, the Soviet leader, sends his troops to hunt them down—and
Mikhail Kirillivitch Kirov, a young conscript caught up
in this mad scheme, is fascinated by this new world. Formerly a student
anthropologist, he finds Pellucidar’s Stone Age landscape and inhabitants
a revelation—until he’s grabbed by a mammoth Skal and flown back to its
aerie to feed its giant offspring.
Thus begins Kirov’s astounding adventure in the Northern
environs of Pellucidar, rife with its incredible Paleolithic animal life,
including Skals, Trals and Dyals, tremendous birds with sharp talons and
fierce beaks; Ryths, the huge Stone Age cave bears whose claws can
tear a man apart; and the vicious Jaloks, hyaenodons whose wild packs slaughter
their prey mercilessly. These and other fantastic beasts stalk Kirov
as he navigates the complex world of Pellucidar’s most dangerous
To survive, Kirov must escape slavery from the Beautiful
Ala and her mighty Black Birdriders, foster a civil war, impress the natives
with his “inventions,” conquer the terrifying Pulka Horde, and become a
warlord of several tribes as they flee the Soviet invaders. It’s a tale
in the grand tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ epic adventures at the

Tarzan and the Revolution
By Thomas Zachek
Art by Mike Grell
Eric Benton, an idealistic young Midwestern Peace Corps
volunteer, could hardly have known that his mission to help an African
village would embroil him and his colleagues in the political struggles
of an emerging African nation.
The people of central Africa likewise had no idea how
quickly their expectations for freedom could be taken away when a ruthless
dictator seizes power. And Tarzan of the Apes had no idea that before long,
he would be compelled, once again, to undertake a long and perilous journey
with the Waziri to save their families.
Set against a backdrop of political unrest in modern Africa,
Thomas Zachek’s latest page-turner takes the reader from the dank treasure
troves of the lost city of Opar to turmoil in the city streets as Tarzan
battles one of his most ruthless foes!
