Praise for the Khokarsa series


“Fans of Farmer’s original series will appreciate this repackaging and enjoy the finale, both in tone and because of the closure it provides. Likewise, fans of Burroughs, H. Rider Haggard, and other pulp authors will find the entire collection an accessible and enjoyable throwback.” —Publishers Weekly on Gods of Opar: Tales of Lost Khokarsa


“Farmer has created in Hadon one of the fullest realizations of the mythological hero to debut in recent years.” —Science Fiction Weekly


“Few fantasy worlds have been better constructed than Khokarsa.” —The Diversifier


“A rich, realistic tapestry of a dead time and place which could easily pass as a thoroughly researched historical novel... Recommended for the young in heart who are old enough to require a little substance with their escapism.” —Captain George’s Penny Dreadful


“There is not just the detail of adventure, but the distinctive flavor of the exotic... The society that forms the background for these adventures is alive and plausible; it exists just around the corner for all its strangeness.” —Moebius Trip
