From the Back Cover
Taking place during the events of the original 1968 Planet of the Apes
film, Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes
explores a shocking, never-before-told storyline!
After his spacecraft smashes into a dead sea of a seemingly alien planet, a man is separated from his fellow astronauts when a raiding party of intelligent apes attacks them. Captured, he finds himself a prisoner in a world turned upside down, with apes as the rulers and man in its zoos. His only hope is to communicate with a couple of chimpanzees who just might be open minded and compassionate enough to be sympathetic to his cause. But the man called John Landon will discover that intelligent minds, be they ape or man, all fear the unknown, and his destiny is not to become part of this new world...but instead to find himself under the knife of a simian brain surgeon on the Planet of the Apes.
