A futuristic Doc Savage pastiche by master pulp author
This book came out in 1983 as one of an unrelated series of new books by pulp stalwart E. Hoffman Price. The action occurs in the mid-21st Century where 186 year old Doc Brandon faces the problems of a world that has been dumbed down and made so politically correct that government nolonger functions efficiently. Doc Brandon is a throwback to an earlier age of action. He has surrounded himslef with human simulants that he has cultivated from chimpanzees who form his trusted defense force. One of the female simulants is also his lover. In the story Doc's private reverie is threatened as dark forces seek to discover his secrets especilly the secret of his longevity. This is a rethinking of the Doc Savage persona as it would confront the strange changes in a more liberal modern world.
