Opar / Khokarsa #1
Wold Newton Universe
Also published as an eBook (2013).
Philip José Farmer originally planned more novels in the Opar series, see Announced Books.
The books also include:
- three maps: Ancient Africa, Kemu, and Khokarsa,
- Description of Maps,
- Chronology of Khokarsa, with the Major Events (from 12,000 - 11,011 B.C.).
DEDICATION: "Dedicated to Hulbert Burroughs in gratitude for his permission to write of Opar, that hidden city of "gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks" and of the civilization which founded it."
COVER TEXT:
Opar...the Atlantean colony in the heart of Tarzan's Africa.
Opar...in the words of Edgar Rice Burroughs, a hidden city of "gold and silver, ivory and apes, and peacocks".
Opar...is the starting point of this fabulous novel of twelve thousand years past, when Africa had an inland sea and a high civilization bloomed along its forgotten shores, when lost empires flew their time-vanished banners, and deed of daring were commonplace.
Philip José Farmer, chronicler of Tarzan Alive, teller of fabulous histories, presents here the first great novel of Hadon of Ancient Opar, whose claim to a throne launched him upon an adventure in the grand style of the great masters of fantasy.
