by Charles B. Stilson
Written by pulp veteran Charles B. Stilson as a follow-up to his successful “Polaris of the Snows” trilogy, available for the first time in one volume. Part of the Altus Press Lost Race Library.
In “A Man Named Jones,” a very drunk Jones awakening to find a dead man under his table holding a large, raw emerald and the photograph of a lovely white women surrounded by Polynesians fiercely protecting her South Seas island from visitors. He vows to rescue the woman from her island prison, not knowing that the crew he’s sailing with are as vicious a band of pirates imaginable.
“Land of the Shadow People” picks up the story some years later when Jones is blackmailed into once again searching for the source of the mysterious emerald. What he finds is a strange race of chameleon people desperate to preserve the secret of their existence. Written in a crisp, modern style these two novels will provide hours of enjoyment.
