Opar / Khokarsa #2
Wold Newton Universe
Announced by PJF with the title Kill Hadon of Opar. Farmer originally planned more novels in the series, see Announced Books.
DEDICATION: "Dedicated to J.T. Edson, Honorable Admiral of the Texas Navy, Honorable Deputy Sheriff of Travis County, Texas, and Thurston County, Washington, and creator of the epical Dusty Fog, the Ysabel Kid, Mark Counter, Ole Devil Hardin, and Bunduki."
COVER TEXT:
Fabulous Opar, whose ruins and primitive priestess were memorable features of great Tarzan novels, was the birthplace of the warrior-hero Hadon.
This was twelve thousand years ago, a time when great inland seas made Central Africa a land of mighty cities and high civilizations.
Hadon was the rightful claimant to the throne of that long-forgotten empire, but his was no easy route to power. Instead he had become the hunted prey of a tyrant's armies, accursed by the tyrant's gods, and fighting for his very life.
Philip José Farmer, chronicler of Tarzan Alive, brings it all back to live in an exciting novel to stand alongside the famous jungle books of Edgar Rice Burroughs himself.
