The Bowl of Baal

The Bowl of Baal

(1917)
A novel by

 
Robert Ames Bennet's pulp classic comes to the Kindle for the first time.

"Baal, god of day, brother of Ishtar, come swiftly to the Bowl! Save Istara, thy goddess priestess, from the oppression of the dark Tigra, priestess of thy enemy, the evil Dweller in Irem!"

This is the message, attached to a wind-swept falcon, which Larry O'Brien intercepts while photographing the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula. Curious and adventure-hungry, he goes in search of the prayer's source and finds an entire forgotten civilization hidden in a secluded canyon. It is there that O'Brien meets the note's author, the shy but kind Istara. There, too he meets the fierce Tigra, priestess to the Dweller, an ancient reptile that feeds on human flesh. O'Brien becomes entangled in the valley's religious and political rivalries, leads a war against a tribe of savage ape-men, eludes prehistoric sharks, and must go head to head against the ancient Dweller itself.
