When Nazi warplanes blast an American fighter pilot out of the sky, he awakens not in the expected afterlife but on a far-flung planet, one of eleven interconnected worlds hurtling around a strangely constructed star system. On Poloda, he earns a new name-Tangor, one who came from nothing-and a new home among the brave people of Unis, a nation locked in perpetual war against the brutish, totalitarian Kapars. But when news comes of a powerful invention that could turn the tides of the conflict, Tangor must undertake a daring undercover mission behind enemy lines. There, in vile Kapara, he will not only risk life and limb, but also brand himself as a traitor in the eyes of his newfound friends, as he continues his fight for freedom beyond the farthest star! The original Part I ofBeyond the Farthest Starwas heavily edited, with a substantial number of line edits and several lengthy passages excised throughout. This edition returns to Edgar Rice Burroughs' original typescript restoring the author's preferred text of the novel. Frontispiece by renowned artist Mark Schultz; classic interior illustrations by Roy G. Krenkel; an introduction by noted science fiction author Paul Di Filippo.
