Reviews - What do customers think about The Lost Oasis and The Sargasso Ogre: Two Classic Adventures of Doc Savage?

Super Reader  Jun 11, 2008
Here's a fun jungle adventure. We have a fair of evil slavers, a lost airship, a beautiful aviatrix, a diamond mine full of slaves (ok, so that is pretty standard, even today). In this Lost Oasis there are also a large number of venomous vampires, and carnivorous plants that can happily handle vultures and larger.

Doc and Rennie are happily minding their own business in Manhattan when they notice a reward being offered for Doc's whereabouts, of a million dollars. Something is up, they learn, clearly, and end up on the trail of the clearly captured aviatrix.

Flight, African action, danger, capture, and breakout all happen at breakneck speed afterwards.

"Where are the Rats?"  Mar 8, 2008
A good read, but if you are looking for the Sargasso Sea of Legend...the Ravenous Rats, Fungus Infected Seamen, Slobbering creatures emerging from the wreckage to roam about the deck at night, Deranged Scientists...Sigh!.. I waited for the ships caught in the great whirlpool to appear out of the mists, their decks overrun with dimly viewed, undulating masses from the unknown.....Much to my regret, not a one. Instead, we have Doc running around the floating wreckage (inadequately pictured) against a malevolent (but ordinary) robber baron. Doc's essentially mindless minions largely out of the action and not demonstrating their scientific or other skills of which we are constantly reminded (otherwise we would forget?). The story is in largely flat, didactic writing without the force to draw one into the scenes....the kind of magic found in the writing of William Hope Hodgson is absent. The illustrations are the most evocative of the allure of the Sargasso...the allure which caused me to exclaim in my first oceanography class..."Sargassum? Sargassum? From the Sargasso Sea? The Isle of Lost Ships??? Wow!" As I stood there on the beach with the specimen in my hands trembling with joy!! One last point...There is a Red Headed Heroine...attracted to Doc....but the script states...(approximately) "There is no woman for Doc Savage"...Gad!. Well, read the story anyway...you might like it if you've not seen anything better. When I saw this volume I bought six other under the influence of my initial ardor...none since.

Action delayed, but once it comes, it's a rush.  Nov 2, 2004
As a fan of Doc Savage, I consider myself fortunate to have collected all of the Bantam Paperback reprints of the original 181 Doc Savage Magazines. Written by Lester Dent, under the pen name of Kenneth Robeson, the pulp magazine was published as a monthly beginning in 1933 to 1949. (For the last few years it was a quarterly.) In 1964, Bantam began their series of paperbacks, which ran for 26 years. As time allows, I will give brief descriptions/reviews of the entire series. In The lost Oasis, #6 in the Bantam Series, creator Robeson keeps most of the suspense and action for the last one-third of the book. This is unlike most of the other tales, where action is maintained throughout, usually in the guise of one or more of Doc's team of adventurers in life-threatening peril. This adventure begins in New York and continues, via blimp, across the Atlantic to darkest Africa and an oasis surrounded by carnivorous plants and poisonous snakes. It all deals with the discovery of one of the world's wealthiest diamond mines, vampire bats that have been bred to produce venom, and enforced slavery. And, as usual, there's a beautiful woman who falls for the stoic Doc. The Man of Bronze and his five assistants liberally use their crime-fighting inventions battling overwhelming odds. Even though most of the action is saved for the latter part of the book, once it comes, it comes in great gobs. The writing is true pulp fiction: fast, simple, direct, and Robeson does his usually fine job of making everything seem plausible.
