"Wait until I get you," (Grum) screamed. "You'll wish you'd never been born."
Von Horst grinned as he featured the life that was in store for Horg should the Mammoth Man lose. Death would be sweeter.
Presently Grum came. Her little eyes were blood-shot, her frowzy hair at its frowziest. She was the personification of a stench, both morally and physically.
"Well," she said, "I guess Horg knows that he has a mate."
"Why did you beat him?" asked von Horst.
"You've got to start right with them," she explained. "If you give them the least little toe-hold you're lost, just as Mumal is."
He nodded in understanding of her philosophy; for, again, he had known women of the outer crust who were like her. Perhaps their technic was more refined, but their aim was identical. Marriage to them, meant a struggle for supremacy. It was a 50-50 proposition of their own devising--they took fifty and demanded the other fifty.
Burroughs went through a divorce about the same time this book was written, which may account for his rather jaded outlook on the bliss of married life. In any event, if you like ERB, put this one in your library.
