Meet the Author


Edgar Rice Burroughs, 1875-1950

Edgar Rice Burroughs is renowed for his many novels of fantastic adventure. Unquestionably his best-known creation is that of the jungle hero, Tarzan the Ape Man, but almost as well known are his stories of other planets beginning with the very popular Mars series. A torrent of novels followed: stories about Venus, tales of the Moon and of the middle Earth, westerns, and detective stories. In all, nearly one hundred stories bore Edgar Rice Burroughs' name.

Born in Chicago in 1875, he tried his hand at many businesses without notable success, until at the age of thirty-five, he turned to writing. With the publication of Tarzan of the Apes and A Princess of Mars, his career was assured. By the time of his death in 1950, at his home in a town bearing the name of his best known work, Tarzana, California over 40 million copies of Edgar Rice Burroughs books have appeared in 58 different languages.

I first read these books when I was ab out ten, even before reading Burroughs' more famous Tarzan novels. I was immediately hooked and remain so to this day. This book collects the first three books, which form a trilogy that sets the tone for the books to follow. The sheer imagination and creativity make them must-reads for anyone who enjoys adventure tales and science fantasy.
