Yellow Men Sleep centers around the explorations of Con Levington who, following the contours of a stolen map-penetrates deep into the Gobi region of central Asia. After an attack by desert riders, he wanders into the hidden valley of Tau Kuan. (“Cruelty, sterility, poison-that is Tau Kuan.”) where the mysterious and addictive drug known as Koresh is produced. In this land of nameless sorrow and lilting beauty, a bizarre tale unfolds.
A lost fantasy from a near-forgotten era, Yellow Men Sleep was first published in magazine form in 1919 as a long serial. It is one of those old prizes that is sure to astound and excite you. A must volume for your collection!.
