Can the world exist half-ape and half-human?
When man discovered that the fantastic Planet of the Apes was their own Earth, it was only the beginning of the most incredible adventure of all time...
Beneath The Planet of The Apes
...in the buried ruins of what was once New York City, lived an incredible race of men, mutated beyond belief by the effects of the ancient Holocaust.
...in the ashes of atomic dust, chimpanzees picketed for peace while their gorilla leaders prepared for war.
...where a great church once shone in the sunlight, dark religious ceremonies paid tribute to the Great Bomb, bringer of life and death.
This is the Earth, thousands of years from now, and this the story of two men from the 20th century who somersaulted through a time warp into the most plausible and yet most fantastic adventure ever conceived.
At last—for everyone who asked, "What happened then?"
In the now classic "Planet of the Apes," 20th-century man discovered that strange world of the future was his own Earth. In this sequel, which begins exactly where the first story ended, man explores deeper into the incredible wasteland that he himself created. Startling contrasts between familiar sights—the Statue of Liberty, St. Patrick's Cathedral, a subway station, New York City—and the rubble of centuries, which has covered the earth, give way to the shocking discovery of a mutated race of humans who worship the instrument which created their world—the Doomsday Bomb.
Science fiction, monster picture, western-type adventure, love story, war intrigue—BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES is the best of all of these in one spectacular story.
