- Full Description
Unaware of his father’s savage past, Tarzan and Jane’s young son Jack becomes captivated by Ajax, the star of a trained ape act. Ajax—actually Tarzan’s longtime friend Akut—has been brought to London by Tarzan’s old enemy Alexis Paulvitch, who hopes to wreak vengeance on the ape-man. After killing Paulvitch in self-defense, Jack and Akut flee to Africa, where they assume the wild life of Jack’s mighty sire. Growing to manhood in the jungle, the Greystoke heir earns the name Korak the Killer, and befriends Meriem, an Arab waif rescued from a life of torment in her adoptive father’s village.
The couple’s idyllic jungle life is challenged by the arrival of evil men, whose schemes to separate the pair—and the ensuing perils—only strengthen Korak and Meriem’s bond.
Special new foreword, "The Korak Conundrum," by author Win Scott Eckert. New Afterword by Scott Tracy Griffin. He details how The Son of Tarzan came to be, as ERB wanted to concentrate on Mars and Pellucidar novels instead. Includes details about its first publication in All-Story Weekly , and subsequent publication, in 1916, of the novel from A.C. McClurg. Scott is the author of Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration and Tarzan on Film.
Each of these new books has special archive material. This includes covers of the pulp, first novel and first paperback, letters to and from ERB to the editor, the rare 1920 film poster for The Son of Tarzan, and illustrations by J. Allen St. John from the first book appearance.
ERB Inc plans to bring every ERB novel back into print, each with excellent new dust jacket in full color, and a new b&w frontispiece by the outstanding Joe Jusko. And extra and unique bonus material in every volume.
