Excerpt

and forward. He launched a mighty kick with both of his powerful legs straight at the gorilla-man's murderous face. The gorilla-man grunted with the force of the pile-driver blow and rocked backwards on its heels.

Ki-Gor landed lightly on his feet and instantly struck with the assegai blade in his right hand. It was a lightning thrust, the sharp blade slashing at the monster's throat. The gorilla-man backed away with a growl and swung a thick, hairy arm with incredible speed. But Ki-Gor dodged the crushing blow, and countered with his blade at the vast abdomen. The beast howled with rage and pain and backed out of the boma. A thin trickle of blood began to flow from the folds of its throat.

Stealthily, Ki-Gor reached down and seized one end of a long fagot, the other end of which was blazing in the fire. With a swift motion, he flung the burning brand straight at the gorilla-man's head. Again the cruel-faced beast gave ground with a howl, and frantically brushed off the flaming fagot.

Reviews

Average Rating of 3 from 1 reviews: ***

Wow, this is a vast improvement on "bride of the serpent god". Here we get some background on Ki-gor and his american wife Helene. But best of all is the introduction of the character "Robert from Cincinatti". Robert is a black American former ship's cook who jumped ship and wound up chief of a friendly tribe in Africa.
He's an extremely likable representation of Black Americans, something rare in the pulps. Plus, Robert is brave and loyal. Some of his conversations with KI-gor, the white man born in the jungle are hillarious, such as when Ki-Gor is confused by his use of idioms. Or when he learns that his wife Helene and Robert are both from the same tribe called 'Mericans and speak N-glish.
Also the plot is much better with logical explanations for the man-apes and the villain.
Overall, night and day compared to the previous story.
