Doc Savage, the legendary superman scientist known as the Man of Bronze, captivated adventure readers from 1933 to 1949 in his own pulp magazine, and again in the 1960s through the 80s in a million-selling Bantam Books paperback series. In 1990, Will Murray, heir apparent to Doc Savage originator Lester Dent, revived the famous Street & Smith superhero in a new series of exploits based on Dent’s unfinished works. Writing as Kenneth Robeson, Murray brought Doc Savage back in The Jade Ogre, an epic adventure of Oriental magic and mystery. Who—or what— is Quon? All of Asia knows him as a devil in human form, a twisted, armless monster with a face of imperial jade. Long dead, Quon has returned from the grave to spread his fatal Jade Fever and subjugate mankind. From San Francisco’s Chinatown, across the vast Pacific to the spidery jungle ruins of Cambodia, Doc Savage and his resourceful crew battle a seemingly-unbeatable foe whose deadly reach knows no barriers, and whose evil ambitions know no bounds.
