Sarban – The Sound Of His Horn (Sphere 1970)

Sarban - The Sound Of His Horn

Alan Querdillion, a young naval lieutenant, is captured by the Germans and wakes up in a hospital bed – more than 100 years later.

The Germans have won the war, and the Third Reich stretches from the Urals to the Atlantic. Non Aryans are bred as slaves. Deprived of speech and intelligence by the surgeon’s knife, they serve their masters with their bodies.

Count Hans von Hackelnberg, master of the Reich’s forests, rules his domain with the iron fist of a fuedal lord. His passion is hunting. At night the sound of his horn echoes eerily through the moonlit forest as the pack closes in on its prey.

A pack of half-naked cat-girls, the inhiman creations of insane surgery, their hands sheathed in steel claws, their bellies starved of meat. And the quarry, as Alan discovered too late, is… himself.

Thanks to Rog Pile for the cover scans and blurb for this one!

    Again, a great book, also earliest memories are from my teens!
    One thing, offcourse – was back then, still is – the question is:
    who was Sarban? I still dont know. Does the world?

    Hi Blood. Thanks for your recent posts and I hope you’re having fun revisiting these wonderful books.’Sarban’ was the pen name of John William Wall, a potted biography of whom you’ll find at the excellent Tartarus.
