Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) was one of the twentieth century's most popular and prolific writers of science-fiction and fantasy/adventure tales, publishing nearly 70 novels and numerous short stories during his career. Well-known for his 11-book John Carter of Mars series, Burroughs wrote 23 novels in the internationally successful Tarzan series and created numerous other series set everywhere from a lost island plagued by dinosaurs to a mysterious world at the earth's core. Authors from Ray Bradbury to Michael Crichton have cited Burroughs as a seminal influence on their work.
Paul Di Filippo's first story appeared in 1977, and he has published nearly 200 since. A native Rhode Islander, he lives in Lovecraft's Providence with his mate of thirty-five years, Deborah Newton, a calico cat named Penny Century, and a chocolate-colored cocker spaniel named,with minimal effort and imagination, Brownie.
