    This seems more like a sketch than a finished book.

    I liked this except it was too short. It's like Burroughs had a plan to make this into a novel and lost interest or something else took its place. I liked this except it was too short. It's like Burroughs had a plan to make this into a novel and lost interest or something else took its place.

    An amusing little short story by one of the masters of Adventure Fantasies, the basic plot (Paleolithic Age Man is unthawed and brought back to life in the early 20th Century) is a trope that's been rehashed almost endlessly. (An episode of "Scooby Doo, Where Are You?" used it as the basis for one of its stories and in the early '90s, "Saturday Night Live" had a sketch that revolved around the idea. For that matter, the trope is more or less how Captain America was brought back to life in Modern An amusing little short story by one of the masters of Adventure Fantasies, the basic plot (Paleolithic Age Man is unthawed and brought back to life in the early 20th Century) is a trope that's been rehashed almost endlessly. (An episode of "Scooby Doo, Where Are You?" used it as the basis for one of its stories and in the early '90s, "Saturday Night Live" had a sketch that revolved around the idea. For that matter, the trope is more or less how Captain America was brought back to life in Modern Times.) The science involved in Jimber-Jaw/Kolani's revival dodgy at best. But that's not unusual for Burroughs. (In addition to the fact that Kolani should have suffered severe cellular damage from being frozen for 50, 000 years [making his revival unlikely], there's the fact that Jimber-Jaw/Kolani would be a Neanderthal and thus not likely to be able to learn English, much less adjust so well to 1930s American life. And while it's one thing for him to be fearless, it's entirely unbelievable that cars, trains, aeroplanes, movies, etc. do not inspire awe in him, as surely he'd see them as magical.) Ignore the flaws and just enjoy the tale. The punchline to the story is pretty funny.

    The Public Domain Theater Podcast episode was wonderful.

    This is a short story that is nothing special. It is the same idea as his "Eternal Savage" only shorter and thus not as developed. This is a short story that is nothing special. It is the same idea as his "Eternal Savage" only shorter and thus not as developed.

    This is a very short story about a stoneage man who is found in a glacier and defrosted, and his adventures in Hollywood. What more could anyone want?
