Overview

In this classic fantasy novel a warrior sets out to win a deadly contest to rule a prehistoric empire—and take the hand of its beautiful priestess.

The lost city of Opar was first introduced to readers in the Tarzan novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Hidden deep in Africa, it is a place shrouded in mystery and awash with incredible riches. In Hadon of Ancient Opar, Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author Philip José Farmer reimagines this forgotten land, revealing the heroes who lived in its prehistoric golden age . . .

A poor young man of great ambition, Hadon leaves his village to enter the great games of Klakor—a bloody contest in which only the strongest and most cunning warrior will survive. He seeks the ultimate prize: to rule the Khokarsan Empire alongside the powerful High Priestess. But his quest for the throne leads him beyond the empire’s edge, where he finds himself embroiled in civil war.

About the Author

Philip José Farmer (1918–2009) was born in North Terre Haute, Indiana, and grew up in Peoria, Illinois. A voracious reader, Farmer decided in the fourth grade that he wanted to be a writer. For a number of years he worked as a technical writer to pay the bills, but science fiction allowed him to apply his knowledge and passion for history, anthropology, and the other sciences to works of mind-boggling originality and scope.

His first published novella, “The Lovers” (1952), earned him the Hugo Award for best new author. He won a second Hugo and was nominated for the Nebula Award for the 1967 novella “Riders of the Purple Wage,” a prophetic literary satire about a futuristic, cradle-to-grave welfare state. His best-known works include the Riverworld books, the World of Tiers series, the Dayworld Trilogy, and literary pastiches of such fictional pulp characters as Tarzan and Sherlock Holmes. He was one of the first writers to take these characters and their origin stories and mold them into wholly new works. His short fiction is also highly regarded.

In 2001, Farmer won the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement and was named Grand Master by the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America.
