Overview

In the 20th century, nearly a century ago, Edgar Rice Burroughs began publishing books about John Carter of Mars and Tarzan of the Apes. And that was just the beginning. His imagination took us on many new and exciting adventures. And his adventures are continue to be exciting entertainment even today. His works are still adapted into games, comics, television shows and motion pictures. Indeed, film director James Cameron has acknowledged that it was the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs that inspired almost directly much of the world and creatures of his record shattering motion picture, AVATAR. Many authors, artists, film makers and scientists credit Edgar Rice Burroughs with inspiring them to pursue their careers. Now, scholars and fans, members of a branch of the highly respected Burroughs Bibliophiles (the National Capital Panthans), have compiled this new book to share their joy of his works. With creativity and insight, they examine why so many people in so many countries of the world still find vital reasons to read the books by Edgar Rice Burroughs - even as we enter a second century of their entertaining the world. This book contains poetry, fiction, comics and illustrations as well as useful information on collecting all things Burroughs.
