- In the 1930s, a very unusual tale appeared in the influential Amazing Stories magazine. Unlike the usual yarns of robots and interstellar travel, this “Battle in the Dawn” featured the brutal exploits of Hok, the first 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 beat out William Faulkner for a prestigious writing award, the story and its brave hero struck a chord with Amazing’s readers, and several additional adventures followed, taking Hok through the prehistory of mankind to battle unrelenting 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 complete authorized collection of all of Wellman’s rare Hok the Mighty tales, packed with unfinished story fragments, all-new illustrations, and a brand-new introduction by Wellman’s longtime friend, fantasy author David Drake.

Getting out of print books is always a bit of a scavenger hunt. When I say the price this was going for on Amazon I resigned myself to probably never reading it. But Hobby Hub had a fantastic deal. The book itself is good classic pulpy fun, although I haven't finished it yet I'm enjoying it immensely. If you like Howard, Burroughs, Lieber, or Fox give Wellman a read
