Russian exile Nikolas Rokoff has stolen an ancient crystal amulet--the key to terrifying power. It can be used to conquer the very depths of time and space, but if Rokoff releases its supernatural forces, the gem will rip apart the fabric of reality. He will throw open the gates to Pellucidar--the prehistoric land at the Earth's core. In doing so, he will unleash the grotesque, reptilian armies of the Mahars.
Only Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle, can hope to stop the flood of creatures whose one goal is bloodthirsty conquest. But even Tarzan may fall prey to the talons of Mora, the ruthless and seductive Queen of the Mahars.

The first time I ever went to Tarzana, California, I walked down Ventura Boulevard, noticing that all of the buildings were really ugly. Then I arrive at my destination: a small house, set back from the street, with a beautiful tree shading the entire front yard. Inside, the air was cool and everything was polished wood, especially the incredible, gigantic desk. That's where he worked. It was awesome.
Edgar Rice Burroughs had a huge California ranch, and the land eventually became a town, named for Burroughs's most famous character. Burroughs created one of the few heroes everyone knows, and at that desk, he took Tarzan to exotic lands, had him face bizarre creatures and endless, exotic challenges. Those adventures spirit the reader away to a timeless time of action and heroism. And sitting in that office, I was a permanent convert. For me, and for countless others, the legend will never cease. And that's as it should be.
