- Full Description
A sequel to the classic ERB adventure Beyond the Farthest Star. American 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. 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. Tomas will use his OSS skills to escape with the beautiful Unisan prisoner, Loris Kiri, to join her countrymen in their struggle against the Kapars.
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.
Author Lee Strong created this second adventure on the planet Poloda, which lies beyond the Globular Cluster NGC 7006 - 450,000 light years away from earth. Join Tomas Ran as he explores Poloda, battles Kapars, and finds love Beyond the Farthest Star.
This sports a wonderful wrap-around cover by an artist new to us, Chris Peuler. I wish I could be more enthusiastic about the black and white interior plates, of which there are many, but I'm afraid they are a bit underwhelming. But at least we have some!
Wild Adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs Series #5.
