Doc Savage
Wold Newton Universe
Based on Kenneth Robeson's classic character Doc Savage. Philip José Farmer proposed this story in his Doc Savage: His Apocalytic Life (1973). There is also a comic book (1989) based on Farmer's idea for the story.
DEDICATION: "To Norma and Lester Dent, Will Murray, Bob Sampson, Bill Colby-Newton, Alberta Camus, and to all those who loved and love Doc and his five aides, Pat Savage, and the splendid villains.
Also, to the Golden Age of the Great Pulps."
COVER TEXT:
A brilliant supervillain has dreamed up the ultimate secret weapon...a desperate masterstroke that will assure victory for the Kaiser – or obliterate mankind from the face of the earth!
Young Clark Savage and his team come together for the first time in this action-packed saga of World War I. Though only sixteen, he's the real Doc – hard fisted, cerebral, the compassionate Man of Bronze. Shot down behind enemy lines. Captured by a German baron and his exotic mistress. Escaped. Recaptured. Finally imprisoned in escape-proof salt mines – where the baron's experiments on human guinea pigs could result in a sinister weapon of total destruction. It's Doc's young mind against evil's keenest intellect. And unless Doc wins, the war could end for the Allies – in a blaze of genocidal fury!
Hugo Award winner Philip José Farmer, superstar of speculative fiction and author of biographical studies of Doc Savage and Tarzan, now adds to the legend of the Man of Bronze in this riveting adventure of Doc's early days.
