There are unknown Things prowling the darkest patch of land on the planet. Haunted by creatures that might have emerged from the Hell’s lowest regions, ancient Ultra-Stygia has turned into a cauldron of conflict between rival countries. Monster bats careen through the night sky. Invisible Cyclopes patrol the scorched battleground. And a power beyond understanding robs men of their vision.

Can the 20th century’s premier scientist and superman untangle this Gordian knot of carnage before neighboring nations are drawn into an apocalyptic new world war? Or will the Man of Bronze succumb to an unstoppable power he himself has unleashed upon mankind?

From the frozen Arctic to the war-torn Balkans, Doc Savage and his fighting five follow a winding trail of terror to a blood-freezing climax.

Men called it the Buddha’s Toe—a relic so terrible it was kept sealed in a strongbox few dared open. Those who did dare, perished—shriveled up like fruit in the tropical sun, all vitality and life-force sucked out of them by a thing whose thirst for human souls was insatiable.

What kind of treasure would motivate plutocrats and pirates alike to vie for the power invested in this unholy thing? What could be gained by unleashing it upon the world? Only superman-scientist Doc Savage understood the real threat, but to stop it he would have to become the Buccaneer of Bronze!

From cosmopolitan Singapore to the barbaric waters of the Yellow Sea, Doc Savage plunges into a desperate struggle for control of the Infernal Buddha—before it consumes the planet!

It began with an uncanny encounter on busy Seventh Avenue. Two men pass each other in the street, walking along calmly one minute—struck down the next by a horrific fate.

All over Manhattan, soundless detonations cut down prince and pauper alike. No one is safe. Great buildings are reduced to ruin. Banks are demolished. The authorities stand helpless.

Only one man, Doc Savage—scientist, adventurer and superman—can penetrate the eerie enigma that threatens to bring the mightiest city on earth to its knees. But when The Alchemist decrees that the Man of Bronze must surrender unconditionally to save New York, will Doc be snuffed out next?

From the besieged canyons of New York to the rugged coast of Alaska, Doc Savage and his men race to resolve the riddle that brings grisly doom to ordinary citizens—and threatens the economic recovery of a Depression-besieged world.

The skies over California explode with blood-red energies that resemble demon cyclones, but behave like intelligent life.

Nothing can stand in their terrible path. Men, machines, even buildings are devoured by the all-destroying Desert Demons. What are they? What do they want?

Far away in his Fortress of Solitude, Doc Savage receives the summons to danger. Radioing his small band of fighting specialists, the mighty bronze man orders them to rush to Los Angeles, prepared to combat the otherworldly menace.

But this time it’s different. This time it’s personal…

For one of their own has fallen victim to the unstoppable, unearthly things.
