In the 1930s, a very unusual tale appeared in the influential AmazingStories magazine. Unlike the usual yarns of robots and interstellar travel,this “Battle in the Dawn” featured the brutal exploits of Hok, thefirst hero of humanity, in his struggles against the savage Neanderthals.
Written by rising pulpster Manly Wade Wellman (Who Fears the Devil?),who would later achieve fame for his American folktales of Silver John and beatout William Faulkner for a prestigious writing award, the story and its bravehero struck a chord with Amazing’s readers, and several additionaladventures followed, taking Hok through the prehistory of mankind to battleunrelenting cavemen, explore the lost city of Atlantis, discover new technology,and chart a new destiny for humanity.
Now, for the first time ever, Planet Stories presents a completeauthorized collection of all of Wellman’s rare Hok the Mightytales, packed with unfinished story fragments, all-new illustrations, and abrand-new introduction by Wellman’s longtime friend, fantasy author DavidDrake.
