Doc Talos Mythos Books

Doc Talos Mythos books expand on the events and characters from the six core novels of the Chronicle, from new, exciting creative talents. Authorized additions to the Talos canon (and sometimes co-written or illustrated by Sardanas and Bellerophon), they add a unique depth and new perspectives to the Doc Talos story.

We Are Connected by Invisible Links by André Vathier (in collaboration with R. Paul Sardanas), illustrations by Iason Ragnar Bellerophon (accompanied by archival photographs selected by RPS)

A tale from the late 19th, early 20th century takes Thomas Davies, possible bastard grandson of the Gnostic Archon Demiurge, from London to Gabon in West Africa. As a member of the French Foreign Legion, Thomas encounters the apelike Folk, the almost-legendary Fon warrior women, and survives the slaughter of his legionnaire comrades to come face to face with powerful, primal mysteries.

82 page novella, with Foreword by Vathier and Afterword by Sardanas, illustrated with dozens of full color paintings by Bellerophon, as well as archival photographs.

Special Art Edition Paperbacks

The special art editions of the Talos Chronicle are identical to the clear text editions listed above, but are composed entirely of full color scans of the raw paintings and paint-spattered texts that comprise the original manuscript of the books. It is like reading a secret document, exhumed from a dark and mysterious past. While they provide the richest views of Iason Bellerophon’s art, the text in them can be challenging to read. So for every purchase of an Art Edition, we are happy to provide a clear PDF download of the book’s text at no additional charge. Here is a sample of how the pages look compared to the standard clear text editions:

Volume 1 of the Talos Chronicle

In Victorian London, Dr. James Wilder is drawn into a secret society that engages in powerful rituals of sex and death. The Gnostic Archons have mastered techniques that result in extended life, and the cult’s leader, the charismatic “archdemoness” Ruha, has further plans of her own to create a dominant figure within the Gnostic cult: a Primal Man.

Ruha’s daughter, a sophisticated albino outlaw named Grace X, opposes these designs, and the two women become locked in a bloody conflict for control of the Archons. Caught in the midst of this secret war, Dr. Wilder is ravaged, body and soul.

Successful in her revolution to overthrow the Archons, Grace leads an expedition to the sanctuary of the Archon cult, in Central Africa. Instead of ushering these ancient powers into the Age of Reason, disaster overtakes the expedition, which is consumed in a frenzied orgy of death and transformation. By the story’s end, Wilder will become Talos, an embodiment of violent lust that will soon cast its shadow across London, and history.

Volume 2 of the Talos Chronicle

Spiraling between Victorian London and primitive Central Africa, Alleys tells the story of Dr. James Talos Sr. in his final descent from enlightened, idealistic physician to becoming Jack the Ripper.

Now the husband of Ruha, leader of the Gnostic Archon cult, Talos’ reason is overwhelmed in a storm of violent sexual psychosis. He preys on the prostitutes of Whitechapel as part of a ritual he barely understands, in order to nurture occult qualities in his and Ruha’s son, the nascent Primal Man.

The narrative volleys from moments of cool reason to hallucinogenic episodes of searing madness. Talos perpetrates each of Jack’s murders clinging to the hope that he can subvert an atavistic evil – he runs a gantlet that includes experiences of revelation, flashes of strange and violent beauty, and uncontrolled brutal lust. It is an unforgettable plunge into the soul’s darkest corners, and lays bare secrets that haunt the world to this day.

Volume 3 of the Talos Chronicle

The 1939 New York World’s Fair becomes the focal point of terrible wonders as Dr. James Talos and Lord John Grersoun become enmeshed in plots by the prime Archons to manipulate the destinies of both men.

Doc Talos is the target of Saklas, the Archon Demiurge…the “World’s Fair Ogre”. A mystery unfolds as a strange figure from the past returns, and events move toward a shocking burst of violence during the Fair’s opening Gala. Lord Grersoun and his wife Lady Helen are simultaneously being seduced by the Gnostic Archdemoness Ruha, culminating in an orgy of sex and murder inside Salvador Dali’s World’s Fair surrealist house, the Dream of Venus.

Opening Day of the World’s Fair will end in death…but for whom?

Volume 5 of the Talos Chronicle

This memoir of the adult life of James Talos Jr. spans over fifty years in the form of stream-of-consciousness thought. It keys on two events: his ultimately-deadly encounter with the beautiful and vicious gangster Maria the Saint in the 1920’s, and the aftermath of the war with the Gnostic Archons in the 1970’s.

His relationship with the woman he thinks is his cousin, Rickie Talos, is also explored in powerful depth. Forty years of their sexual affair is laid bare, plunging deep into the intense passions and violent obsessions that drive them both.

That violence, and both the shadows and realities of death, come full circle from the events that shaped Doc’s father into Jack the Ripper, through his own journey to become a man embodying peace and hope.

Special features in the Art Edition are the short, lethally surreal photostory Doc Talos vs. Maria the Saint, and the tale of a wild Harlem night out on the town in the 1930’s for Rickie Talos, The King and the Angel.

EROTIC CONTENT – FOR ADULTS ONLY

Volume 4 of the Talos Chronicle

Set in the late 1960’s, Doc Talos and Lord Grersoun are pitted against one another in a deadly encounter across Central Africa and Scotland, with both antagonists provoked into a condition of sexual insanity. Once-heroic figures, they are deep in a state called the blood-phase, which vaults them into uncontrolled arousal connected to violence and murder.

The battle with the secret society of Gnostic Archons comes to a head when Ruha, one of the cult’s co-leaders, murders the Demiurge Saklas, and intends for either Talos or Grersoun – whichever one survives – to take his place.

Savages is a roaring engine of pulp blood and thunder, re-imagining the Sixties sexually-explicit adventure writings of Philip José Farmer. Fifty years after that seminal storytelling, it brings a psychological edge and new boldness to a classic of adult fiction.

Volume 6 of the Talos Chronicle

In the not-distant future, Doc Talos, in his arctic retreat, prepares to conduct a bold and dangerous experiment: the revivification of the murdered prime Archon, Ruha.

Using virtual reality techniques, he first interacts with the women in his history. Not just Ruha, but Mona, the woman he almost married, and his half-sister Grace, who had been slaughtered by Jack the Ripper over 150 years before. Reality and fantasy blur, until Talos’ own sanity slips toward collapse.

The experiment precipitates a catastrophe, and all contact with Doc in his retreat is lost. Rickie Talos and Lord John Grersoun travel to the arctic to find out what’s happened, and they too are swallowed up in a cyber-psychotic ordeal of sex and death.

EROTIC CONTENT – FOR ADULTS ONLY

This sprawling pulp epic takes the foundation of the Doc Savage and Tarzan canons, further developed fifty years ago by Philip José Farmer, and expands them into a magnum opus of sex and death for the mind and soul. Spanning the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, this is the story of Dr. James Talos and Lord John Grersoun, both powerful iterations of the Primal Man, and destined to change the world.

Abyss tells the story of Doc’s father, James Wilder – his immersion into the Gnostic Archon secret society of 1880’s London, and the disastrous trip to Africa which results in a frenzied orgy of death and transformation.

Savages continues the story in the 1960’s. Doc Talos and Lord Grersoun are pitted against one another in a deadly encounter across Central Africa with both antagonists provoked into a state of sexual insanity, and ending in a bloody pitched battle in Scotland.

Madonnas leaps forward to the mid-21st century, and a virtual reality nightmare that engulfs both men, as well as Doc’s cousin/sister, Rickie Talos. An experience that tears deep into their souls, and results in both slaughter and resurrection.
