One of the most popular sub-genres of the classic pulp magazines were those with jungle settings. With the success and popularity of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan stories, editors began clamoring for similar tales featuring jungle heroes. Soon dozens of cheap loin-cloth wearing imitators were popping up everywhere, including a few jungle queens to add spice to the mix. By far the most successful of these Tarzan clones was the blond-haired Ki-Gor, the Jungle Lord whose adventures appeared regularly in the pages of Jungle Stories magazine.
The deep in the heart of the Congo is a jungle wilderness filled with exotic beauty and danger. This is the world of Ki-Gor the Jungle Lord, his beautiful mate, Helene and their allies; Tembu George the transplanted American turned Masai warrior and N’Geeso, the daring pygmy chieftain. Here are three brand new adventures featuring these beloved characters from one of pulpdom’s most popular series.
Writer John R. Rose offers up a trilogy of original tales; a long novella and two short stories. In these Ki-Gor and his friends discover a hidden world, battle Nazi agents and run afoul of greedy treasure hunters. This is classic pulp jungle action reliving the days when Africa was still a vast, uncharted continent and only the bravest of the brave dared to venture within its lost and hidden realms.
