The newly discovered finale to the Star Kings saga!

As Analog said of The Star Kings, here you will find "Roistering adventure, beautiful heroines, color and imagery, a final world-smashing slug-fest. Good fun."

Edmond Hamilton's The Star Kings (Amazing Stories in 1949) is one of the jewels in the crown of early space opera, rivaled only by E. E. Smith's Lensmen Series and Jack Williamson's Legion of Space Saga. Then in 1957 Hamilton penned two additional novels in the Star Kings universe, that languished undiscovered in the pages of Imaginative Tales, until earlier this year when the editors of FuturesPast Editions found both stories, one (set millennia after the events of The Star Kings) the capstone to the entire saga.

Here, for the first time restored to their place as part of the worlds of the Star Kings, are those two epic tales, The Star Hunter, which tells the story of the founding of one of the great star kingdoms, and The Tattooed Man, the story of a quest for a legendry location that turns out to the long fallen throneworld of the Star Kings empire. Here is one of the three grandmasters of classic space opera, writing at the top of his form, fast-moving, poetic, romantic, cosmic in conception, but at the same time matured in outlook.

The Last of the Star Kings is a FuturesPast pulp reprint "Ultimate Edition". In addition to the original magazine text, a new introduction, Edmond Hamilton's own chronology covering the two thousand centuries between our own time and that of the Star Kings, plus newly discovered material about the millennia that follow, biographical sketch by Hamilton himself, the magazine covers for The Star Hunter and The Tattooed Man in full color, and notes on how the dates of both stories were established.
