Book Description

NOTE: This edition has a linked "Table of Contents" and has been beautifully formatted (searchable and interlinked) to work on your Amazon e-book reader.

The classic "Great Marvel" series by Roy Rockwood. These books tell the adventures of a genius inventor, Professor Amos Henderson and his two young assistants, Mark Sampson and Jack Darrowand. Their travels take them to the interior of the Earth and even a trip to Mars!

Their breakthroughs in technology drive the plots of the novels, placing them in a genre sometimes called "invention fiction" or "Edisonade." If you enjoyed the Tom Swift adventures, then you'll love these.

In this volume:

In their first adventures together, Professor Henderson and the gang, build a unique flying airship called the Monarch They all visit the North Pole and experience danger and adventure!

Professor Henderson and the gang build a sub-ocean craft, the Dolphin, that runs on a sea water mix. During their journey they do battle with giant sea monsters, pass through an ocean graveyard of sunken ships, and even discover an opening into the Hollow Earth!

Book Three: Five Thousand Miles Underground (also known as The Mystery of the Centre of the Earth)--
Deep below the earth, Professor Henderson and the gang, discover a lost race of giants and experience adventures involving murderous plants, strange and wonderous animals and even a treasure...

Book Four: Through Space to Mars (also known as The Longest Journey on Record)--
Professor Henderson and the gang build a rocket ship and travel to Mars! They end up in a war with Martians over a mysterious power source: Cardite.

Book Five: Lost on the Moon (also known as In Quest of the Field of Diamonds)--
Strange adventures involving a diamond field on the Earth's moon. Professor Henderson and the gang also discover a petrified city populated by petrified people. Can Henderson and friends make it back alive?

Book Six: On a Torn-Away World (Captives of the Great Earthquake)--
Professor Henderson and the gang travel to the far North hoping to find a rare plant that grows only in Alaska. But a frightful series of earthquakes cause a huge piece of the earth to be sheered away into outer space taking our adventurers along...

Full of intrigue and adventure, these classic novels are a must for adventure pulp literature fans!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ah youth! June 18, 2010

It was about 72 years ago that I decided these books were too juvenile and too absurdly unscientific for me and gave them all away, They'd be worth a lot now! butt hat's not why I wish I'd kept them. They're fun, and they reflect a saner, happier time in this country, Some will find the black man's character racist, but he's a gifted engineer, and all treat him with respect.

Excellant collection of older stories, most of which I had read many years ago, but I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting them.

I wanted to check out the newer Kindle comic viewing so I went to the Kindle store, typed "Kindle Comics" and one of the first titles was this one. I saw the word "Marvel" in the title and bought it.

I have NO clue why this came up in a search for "Kindle Comics" but this is NOT a comic! It is a collection of six novellas. It MAY be great as others have noted but I just feel cheated.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nicht das was ich erwartet habe June 14, 2011
By Narya
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ich hatte eine Comic-Sammlung erwartet, und erhielt Prosa-Kurzgeschichten. Schade, das Kindle immer noch nicht in der Lage zu sein scheint, Angaben über den Stil, und die Länge eines Textes zu machen.
