Some top notch writers have written for this anthology. All acknowledge their love and debt to Burroughs's work.
The only reprint is a John Carter story The Burroughs estate was contractually bound against any new Mars pieces, likely because of the John Carter anthology already out. It was originally published in as part of a giveaway and only a thousand copies were printed. Lupoff, Kevin J. Loved every story here and more than one of them demanded a sequel. Fingers crossed. Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Tarzan and the Martian Invaders features different Martians than we're familiar with from the John Carter books, but is a strong tale, and I really liked The Two Billys, which features the Mucker.
To the Nearest Planet was the longest of the stories and kept my attention all the way through, and Dead World is the tale of David Innes' exploration of middle earth's moon, which has launched a deadly flora invasion upon Innes' 'empire'.

Tarzan and the Land that Time Forgot is also one of my favorites along with the Mucker tale as it involves a zeppelin and the lost island of Caspak. At first I wasn't keen on Scorpion Men of Venus, because the ending seems antithetical to Burroughs' take on Carson of Venus, but if I consider it as a cliffhanger then I'm okay with it.
It is well written and entertaining. There's only one tale in the collection that really didn't work for me. Generally, my rule of thumb on a collection of stories is that I need to enjoy at least half of them. Ten out of eleven is really beyond any reasonable expectations. First read ERB in the early 60's One person found this helpful.
Fun stories for a Burroughs' fanatic. Something from each of Burroughs' worlds: the conflict zone between settler and Apache; Red Mars, Wet Venus, Inner Earth, Tarzan out of his jungle element, and other realms where feisty damsels and rugged men swashbuckle their way through grim situations in well-realized fictional and down-to-earth realms.

This is an outstanding collection of "new" adventures of Burroughs fantastic characters. I purchased it especially for the stories depicting Tarzan and thought they were excellent. All were of the highest calibre. I hope to see more in the future. All of the writers did a great job with the stories patterned after those of ERB. Just like his stories, I liked some of these more than others. When a favorite author is no longer writing, for whatever reason, it's nice to find something new to feed the monkey. Speeching of which, check out "Tarzan Meets Kong" for some more tasty bananas.

This man's name was Edgar Rice Burroughs, and for him writting was about paying the bills, a way to survive, but in the process, led the way for so many authors of the past and the present, who thank Mr.

This book gets five stars from me as it transported me to the worlds that Mr. Burroughs created a lifetime ago, and of which was hard to put down. Not as good as I would have hoped. Some were good, but several stories were really bad. What's up with Burroughs' characters leaving their old flames for new ones? See all 28 reviews.

It is conservative to say, however, that with the translations into thirty-two known languages, including Braille, the number must ran into the hundreds of millions. When one considers the additional worldwide following of the Tarzan newspaper feature, radio programs, comic magazines, motion pictures, and television, Burroughs must have been known and loved by literally a thousand million or more.
