    A very good couple of linked pastiches of Tarzan and Doc Savage, and their battle against The Nine Lots of adventure and other good stuff I think I like the Tarzan pastiche better.I m not as big a fan of the Wold Newton theory as a lot of people I know, so I don t give it as high a rating as some of them.

    Lord of the trees wasn t very good so I can t really explain why I bothered to read The mad goblin which was absolutely awful One of the great mysteries of life I guess.

    Two novels which can be read seperately, but when put together, basically tell the same story from two different POV These two heroes are Farmer s versions of Tarzan and Doc Savage Both stories are sequels to the weaker A Feast Unknown novel If you haven t read Feast you can still enjoy this book.Great attempt at recreating the feel of a pulp novel, while bumping the characters intomodern times Lord of the Trees is the stronger of the two stories.

    This two fer is a latter day nod to the Ace Doubles two novel printed T te b che that Ace published mainly in the 50 s and 60 s Fairly good stories both.
