Genre Fantasy

Also published as an eBook (2012).
DEDICATION: "This story is dedicated to Edgar Rice Burroughs, without whom my childhood and youth would have been inestimably deprived and colorless, and to Vernell Coriell, a Lord Tyger in his own right."
COVER TEXT:
"My Mother is an Ape. My Father is God. I come from the Land of Ghosts."
So sings Ras Tyger, Philip José Farmer's monumental incarnation of a modern-day Jungle Lord. Savage, heroic, and beautiful, he is master of the world. And he rules his kingdom with sex, savagery, and sublime innocence.
Until one day, with the landing of the great whirling "birds", the insane reality of his existence begins to unfold... and plunges him into an incredible quest for truth which cannot end until he comes face to face - with God.
(Signet Books)
