Description

In the 1930s, a very unusual tale appeared in the influential Amazing
Stories magazine. Unlike the usual yarns of robots and interstellar travel,
this "Battle in the Dawn" featured the brutal exploits of Hok, the
first hero of humanity, in his struggles against the savage Neanderthals.
Written by rising pulpster Manly Wade Wellman (Who Fears the Devil?),
who would later achieve fame for his American folktales of Silver John and beat
out William Faulkner for a prestigious writing award, the story and its brave
hero struck a chord with Amazing's readers, and several additional
adventures followed, taking Hok through the prehistory of mankind to battle
unrelenting cavemen, explore the lost city of Atlantis, discover new technology,
and chart a new destiny for humanity.
Now, for the first time ever, Planet Stories presents a complete
authorized collection of all of Wellman's rare Hok the Mighty
tales, packed with unfinished story fragments, all-new illustrations, and a
brand-new introduction by Wellman's longtime friend, fantasy author David
Drake.
