King of Claw and Fang - Bob Byrd

Download Ka-Zar - King of Claw and Fang

Surprisingly enjoyable jungle adventure hero story, talking to lions, fighting evil leopards and sleazy white exploiters. All good fun stuff.

Killer's Kraal - James Anson Buck

Download Sheena - Killer's Kraal

Another jungle adventure. Definitely an interesting character, a strong woman in a male dominated jungle arena and her interaction with the obligatory anglo male she helps, and is of course the potential love interest. Not to mention being she is babe in animal skin gear, of course. This is handled fairly well thoughout, a lot more sexual tension and teasing than anything, while the adventure involves uncovering the plot of the evil witch doctors, of course.

Red Nails - Robert E. Howard

Download Conan - Red Nails

Conan is travelling, finds a dead woman, and then encounters Valeria of the Red Brotherhood. After trading some insults, they have the misfortune to stumble across a dragon.

Then they have fun in an abandoned city full of crazed warriors, two evil leering royals, and a third undeed type one. Capture, bondage, slayage, all the great stuff in this tale of a fantastic partnership.

The Case of the Half-Demon Spy - Kelley Armstrong

Download The Case of the Half-Demon Spy

Short, and average, but with an interesting twist on succession planning and training operatives, so to speak.

A head of a supernatural council has children he needs to keep out of the way, each with their own witchy or demonic abilities. At least that is what the pair of teenagers thing.

The Flames - Olaf Stapledon

Download The Flames

Stapledon's humanity can almost make you want to weep, at times, and not in a bad writing kind of way, either.

The Laughing Cavalier - Emmuska Orczy

Download The Laughing Cavalier

Even more romping in the face of those dastardly Frenchie anti-royalist cranium removers. Fun adventure.
