Drummond, John Peter: Ki-Gor - Bride of the Serpent God. v1. 06 June 07

"Ahhhhhhhhh!!" [cough, cough].

Enough high-brow Let's enjoy some good light reading, with Ki-Gor, Lord of the Jungle. This is the first of three. (The pulp covers do not match the stories; I couldn't locate those. I do have covers, since they add so much to the feel of these wonderful old stories.

Ki-Gor is:

"Ki-Gor was written by a house author, meaning that his exploits were written by any number of authors but all credited to the imaginary John Peter Drummond. As a result you can probably anticipate, correctly, that the Ki-Gor stories are a mixed bag. The worst of them are the most vile pulp writing you can imagine. But the best of them are written in a frenzy of glorious purple prose. Hocking has described these good ones as sounding a lot like they are Tarzan stories as written by Robert E. Howard or Mickey Spillane, and I’ve found that description apt. Of the thirty or so I’ve read now a little over a dozen are pulp gems. By gems I mean they’re outrageous adventure romps turned up to 11, with great action scenes, monsters, menaces, voodoo queens, dinosaurs, walking zombies – all the stuff you expect to find when you first hear of pulps and rarely encounter… for in reality the majority of pulps are pretty banal and not nearly as exciting as their covers."

I hope you enjoy them.
