BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES
By Michael Avallone
Thousands of years from now, in the buried ruins of what was once New York City, dark religious ceremonies pay tribute to the Great Bomb, bringer of life and death. In Ape City, the chimpanzees picket for peace while their gorilla

The time indicator races back through the years from 3955 to 1973. The spacecraft holds three survivors of a devastating cataclysm: Cornelius, his mate Zira, and Dr Milo.
