For days, Tarzan found half-dead natives, the blood drained out of their veins. At first suspecting a secret voodoo ceremony, he soon discovers a reason even more horrible and fantastic – a race of highly-developed mutants, requiring a plasma nourishment, who return from the far future via time machines. Against this superior intelligence, Tarzan pits his great apes and jungle cunning to save his captive wife, Jane, and the rest of our planet’s inhabitants.
#5 in the unauthorized Tarzan series. A paperback original first edition. The Edgar Rice Burroughs estate successfully sued the publisher, resulting in this and the other novels in the series to be pulled from shelves and destroyed.
