My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Excellent and very well written pulp series. This omnibus edition features the first four Green Lama pulp novels. There’s obviously a bit of both the Shadow and Doc Savage here, but the Green Lama himself is a much more accessible hero than the Shadow was. He’s got a bit of super-science here and there, and a lot of Tibetan mystique. The supporting cast isn’t as stereotypical as Doc’s, but they are all written like them, as real people.

Very enjoyable series so far; think I’ll pick up the next volume in this reprint series next month.
