The Lost Giant - Kenneth Robeson, Lester Dent An excellent Doc Savage novel! This is one of those that are great just for Lester Dent's (a.k.a. Kenneth Robeson) characterization of Doc as being slightly more flawed than in a lot of the other pulps. In this tale, Doc is trying to do his duty for the government, but hasn't got a lot of information as to who his friends are in this particular situation. Doc shows a lot of real emotion, panic and even some fear as things progress, making him seem a lot more human than his superhuman exploits normally let it seem. Definitely a good pulp adventure tale I would recommend to anyone.
