    As a kid, Beneath was so forbidding that I found it disturbing, but as a teenager and adult it became my fav in appreciation of its oddities and darkness… the Empire Strikes Back of the Apes.

    I don't consume much of the new fiction either, but do have a few books in the to-read-pile with the artwork of Conspiracy having sucked me in. I suppose after recently reading Rinzler's impressive book, everything else is going to be somewhat disappointing for a while.

    I read both Conspiracy and Death about two years ago. I liked how the author explained what really happened to Landon. Also, the books explained more about Milo, who he was and how he rebuilt the space ship. The first POTA movie I saw was Escape in the theatre when it came out in 1971. Milo gets killed so early in the movie, you never really knew anything about him.

    OK,a little confused is this book(s) set in the Heston Universe or the Galen/Verdon/Burke universe???? I love the tv show much more than the films and i would love to read the continuing adventures of the TRIO. Also are there more books with stories featuring Alan, Peter & Galen??

    anyone read this? I just finished it. great read. really filled in a lot. written by the same guy that wrote Conspiracy on the Planet of the Apes. I love that he even brought in Alan Verdon. i hope he writes some more

    I believe the anthology book "Tales from the Forbidden Zone" has a story based in the TV series universe.

    There's some good TV series fan-fiction out on the Internet if you do some searching.

    Also, the UK television annuals have some original stories featuring the fugitives, there was a series of comics in the 70s from Argentina that featured the trio (but some of those stories are pretty far out), and for your listening pleasure, Power Records had four original APES stories put out on an LP in 1975-I would imagine these must be posted online somewhere by now-They're actually quite good and capture the spirit of the TV series. "Volcano" is my favorite of the four.
