Item description for Felifax the Tiger Man by Stableford Paul Brian, Feval fils...
In Felifax, originally published in 1929, the son of Paul Fval took on the nearly impossible task of trying to bring together two archetypes: Sir Eric Palmer, the great British detective, a successor of Sherlock Holmes, against jungle-born Felifax, a hybrid tiger-man, a literary clone of Tarzan, in the hope of generating a singular synergy. Unlike the vast majority of Tarzan imitations, Felifax is not a feral child but something brand new and ground-breaking: the result of a biological experiment, thus forging a thematic link with comic book superheroes such as The Incredible Hulk.

Reviews - What do customers think about Felifax the Tiger Man?
Exciting jungle tale! Jun 28, 2008
Felifax introduces the reader to a jungle hero in the style of Tarzan, though with an interesting twist. The hero of the tale is more than human, with tiger genes playing a part in his development. The story is exciting and it was a true pleasure to read and add to my pulp collection. Highest recommendations!
Jungle Action and Detective Mystery Mashup Jun 23, 2008
I can't really add more to David L. Vineyard's spot-on review of 6/13/08 except to add that Felifax's origin, the result of scientific experimentation a la H. G. Wells' Doctor Moreau rather than the typical feral child lost in the jungle story, is a welcome twist on the genre and provides for an entertaining romp. Translator Stableford's introduction and annotations are typically informative. Rounding things out is a beautiful cover painting by Hank Mayo, making this a volume, like other offerings from Black Coat Press, a well-produced and worthy addition to my library.
French Tiger Man vrs Sherlock Holmes Jun 14, 2008
Felifax by Paul Feval fils, adapted and translated by noted British science fiction and horror novelist Brian Stableford is yet another excellect addition to Black Coats Press growing library of classic popular and pulp fiction previously unavailable in English. This 1928 novel features the eponymous hero Felifax, not a feral child, but the product of a scientific experiment crossing human and tiger to produce a new breed of jungle superman. This volume consists of the two Felifax novels by the son of popular French novelist Paul Feval pere (le Bossu, John Devil, Les Habits Noir --- a contemporary of Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo)pitting his feral superman against another pulp archtype, Sir Eric Palmer, the chosen successor to Sherlock Holmes. The result is a tale of mystery and grand adventure certain to entertain readers of Tarzan, Holmes, and Philip Jose Farmer's Wold Newton universe as the story moves from London to India and encompasses thugs and the evil Brahmin of Kali Sourima. Stableford has included an infomative and entertaining introduction and annotations to make this an attractive package for any lover of good storytelling, high pulp adventure, and sheer escapism. Readers with a taste for this brand of adventure should check out this and other volumes in the Black Coats Press growing backlist of fine titles.
