"Tarzan Alive offers the first chronological account of Tarzan's life, narrated in careful detail garnered from Burroughs's stories and other sources. From the ill-fated voyage that led to Greystoke's birth on the isolated African coast to his final adventures as a group captain in the RAF during World War II, Farmer constructs a comprehensive and authoritative account. Farmer's assertion that Tarzan was a real person has led him to craft a biography as well researched and compelling as that of any character from conventional history. This definitive Bison Books edition also includes Farmer's "Exclusive Interview with Lord Greystoke" as well as "Extracts from the Memoirs of 'Lord Greystoke' " first anthologized in Mother Was a Lovely Beast."--Jacket

"Escaping the religious tyranny of a 31st-century Earth by a fluke assignment to the planet Ozagen, linguist Hal Yarrow found that the worst of Earth had followed him - Pornsen, his personal Guardian Angel, vigilant for any evidence of sin or wrong thinking. Conditioned by a lifetime of submission, Yarrow would have accepted Pornsen's constant spying as an unpleasant necessity and lost himself in the study of the language of Ozagen's intelligent dominant race, the Wogglebugs... but then, hidden in ancient ruins built by humanoids long vanished from the planet, he found Jeanette, a not-quite-human fugitive. For a Believer like Yarrow, unconsecrated contact with any female was forbidden - and love for an alien was unthinkable. But to Yarrow, in every way that counted, Jeanette was warmly and bountifully human. So Yarrow sought the aid of the amiably tolerant Wogglebugs to keep his harboring of Jeanette a secret - and at the same time concealed from his alien allies Earth's farreaching plans for them and their unexploited planet. Yet there was one secret Yarrow did not know and could not imagine... the very special nature and needs of the woman he loved!"--Goodreads

"Fifteen billion years from now, Earth is a dying planet, its skies darkened by the ashes of burned-out galaxies, its molten core long cooled. The sunless planet is nearing the day of final gravitational collapse in the surrounding galaxy. Mutations and evolution have led to a great disparity of life-forms, while civilization has resorted to the primitive. Young Deyv of the Turtle Tribe knew nothing of his world's history or its fate. He lived only to track down the wretched Yawtl who had stolen his precious Soul Egg. Joined by other victims of the same thief--the feisty Vana and the plant-man Sloosh--he sets off across a nightmare landscape of monster-haunted jungle and wetland. Their search leads them ultimately to the jeweled wasteland of the Shemibob, an ageless being from another star who knows Earth's end is near and holds the only key to escape"--Publisher's description
