So, I got my hands on a copy of this ultra-trashy work, simply because I wanted a straight-up Tarzan porn novel in my collection. Yes, Phillip Jose Farmer's A FEAST UNKNOWN certainly qualifies as such, but, despite it's incredibly explicit content, it was written by an author with a deep knowledge of the character and his lore, so it read like what might happen if Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan's creator and main scribe, had gone on a four-day Jaegermeister and Mexican cough syrup bender. 
Anyway, I expect nothing out of this other than prose along the quality of disposable novels that used to be sold to desperate travelers at bus stations, convenience stores, and airport booksellers. I'm just curious to see if the writer did enough research to include a scene where Jane gets it on with Mugambi. And at least the cover artist knew that Jane is canonically a blonde, unlike most movies would have us believe.
