The Monster Men was originally published as "A Man Without a Soul" in All-Story Magazine way back in 1913. Professor Arthur Maxon wants to create artificial life, but as he can't pursue that scientific endeavor back home, he travels with his daughter to a remote Pamarung Island in the West Indies where there aren't so many prying eyes and regulations. In a blend of Frankenstein and The Island of Doctor Moreau fashion, Maxon takes a man and turns him into a monster, though he's trying to improve life. Number Thirteen isn't like the others, of course, and the fun begins there. Inventive and full of action as you'd expect from Burroughs.
