Apocalyptic Bio Picks!

Joe DeVito
Finally my copy of the new version of Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life from Altus Books arrived at my doorstep a few days ago. It has me looking forward to autumn with cooler temps and some exceedingly tasty reading as I again climb the intricate family tree of Philip Farmer's faux-biography of the famous Man of Bronze. 

Jean-Paul Goode
Actually I'll begin with Tarzan Alive from Bison Books which I've had in my stacks for a while now. This is the exotic examination which elaborated for the first time Farmer's deviously detailed Wold-Newton concept.

I've never read these two books in close proximity before and neither in a good many years, so the synthesis of that should be most enlightening. Looking forward to it.

  1. The Tarzan Alive cover reminds me of Gene Simmons of Kiss

    1. My gosh! I wish you hadn't said that. Now it's in my head. Arrggh!

      He does though.
