    Like a lot of Doc fans, I read the Green Master when it came out in the last Doc Omnibus. I actually liked it, and the other two stories that capped the Doc run in the late 1940s. It’s a throw-back to the 1930s Doc Savage adventures with the usual adventure in a faraway land with a hint of mysticism and/or ESP. It’s a quite readable adventure and one not to disappoint . . . assuming the Doc fan has plowed through the strange Doc adventures of the three or four years preceeding the last three adventures. The great irony is that Bantam saved the worst Doc for the last volume (The Derelect of Skull Shoal). But the last three Docs really stand in a class of their own, worth rereading.
