In this adventure, Ki-Gor, the jungle king of the pulps is lured into a trap by a man who saves Helene's life. Drugged and hypnotized, by a power mad despot, Ki-Gor unwittingly leads Helene, along with his two closest friends, the Masai warrior Tembu George and N'Geeso chief of the pigmies, and their tribes, into the hands of a fiend. A helpless pawn in a madman's scheme, Ki-Gor's only hope is a Zulu wizard (fans of H. Rider Haggard will recognize the inspiration for this character) whose aid the jungle lord has already spurned. As an added treat, this electronic edition reprints the original magazine blurb for the story. With an original Introduction discussing the character, his creators, and the story itself. Plus a complete list of all the Ki-Gor novels from Jungle Stories. With the original pulp magzine cover illustration.

The adventures of Ki-Gor continue in this pulp-classic tale by John Peter Drummond: Lair Of The Beast!
"Ki-Gor was the best and most popular of Tarzan's rivals," -pulp expert Forrest J. Ackerman. In this adventure, Ki-Gor takes on one of the oldest of all human evils, human trafficking, a scourge which has never died out even to this day. As the original magazine blurb puts it: "Ki-Gor, white lord of the jungle, had sworn an oath. Death to ibn Daoud, dealer in men! Death to the Arab slave-dealer who held beautiful Helene captive in his fortress reared on human bones and human souls!" It is logical that he should encounter it, for Africa has always been a prime target for those who would trap and enslave others. A must for fans of Tarzan and other jungle heroes. As an added treat, this electronic edition reprints the original magazine blurb for the story. With an original Introduction discussing the character, his creators, and the story itself.

Here's an adventure tale like no other! If you are a fan of savage-yet-civilized ape men then Ki-Gor, King Of The Jungle By John Peter Drummond is the book for you!
In this first of his adventures, Ki-Gor, a Rousseauian primitive who has been living alone in the jungles of Africa since he was a young boy, crosses the path of a beautiful young woman whose skin is also curiously pale like his own. Slowly they learn to communicate and fall in love as they are menaced by slavers, warrior tribes and the deadliest of jungle beasts. The woman, Helene, who falls in love with the likable primitive, is an unusually strong figure in her own right for a pulp magazine heroine of the time. At the conclusion of the story, they set off with their elephant, Marmo, for who knows what future adventures.
From the pages of the best of the pulps comes another tale in the Johnny Mayhem saga by C. H. Thames: World Beyond Pluto [The Adventures of Johnny Mayhem #4]! If you've enjoyed Johnny's previous adventures then this is a must-have book!
This ebook contains the final three suspense-filled adventures in the "lives" of Johnny Mayhem, the fabulous cosmic trouble-shooter. Mayhem was the most popular character appearing in the American science fiction magazines of the mid- to late-1950s. His body reconstructed by aliens after a crash landing, Mayhem is literally "the man who saved the universe" – and the price he pays for it is a terrible one, for Mayhem's consciousness can move from body to body, but he can inhabit each body only for 30 days, or he and it will die. So Johnny becomes a galactic trouble-shooter who must face the greatest dangers that threaten humanity and triumph over them – or perish. The first story, "A Coward Named Mayhem," sends him into space on a brave man's mission. But how can he succeed—trapped as he is in the body of a man with a coward's reactions? The second, "Think Yourself to Death," involves Mayhem in a gender-change, transplanted tin a female body, and adventure on a planet of Ophiuchus. In Johnny's final adventure ever, "World Beyond Pluto," Johnny is off to Partap's Planet, whose stubborn residents resist evacuation when their sun is about to go nova.
