Africa, Barsoom, Pellucidar, Amtor ~ four fabulous worlds did not provide
enough room in which Edgar Rice Burroughs' active imagination could roam.
Beyond his popular series, Burroughs wrote a host of novels and tales that
will appeal to adventure lovers, no matter what their taste.
So you've read the Pellucidar
books and still feel the need to battle dinosaurs? Then climb aboard a
World War I submarine and take the plunge into The Land That Time Forgot!
Considered one of Burroughs' finest and most imaginative stories, The
Land That Time Forgot (and its two sequels, The People That Time
Forgot and Out of Time's Abyss) takes the reader on a thrill-packed
journey to the lost continent of Caprona deep in the south seas. There,
cave men live cheek by jowl with dinosaurs, saber-tooth tigers and the
mysterious Weiroo ~ a race of winged men who live in cities made from the
skulls of their victims!
The next classic Burroughs
science fiction trilogy consists of The Moon Maid, The Moon Men
and The Red Hawk. Space explorers in the Twenty-First Century accidentally
discover that far beneath the moon's surface lies a savage and warlike
world. To make matters worse, when the Moon's inhabitants learn of the
Earth ~ they invade! The moon men conquer, civilization collapses, and
humanity begins a centuries-long struggle for independence.
If horror is more your thing
then check out The Monster Men. A scientist is obsessed with creating
the perfect human in his laboratory vats, but the road to perfection is
paved with twelve hideous mistakes! Looking for more lost cities to explore?
The Land of Hidden Men. Deep in the jungles of Cambodia
a remnant of the ancient Khmer peoples survive, who still wage war atop
charging elephants. A lost city of Japanese samurai can be found on a tiny
Pacific island, and this serves as the action-filled turf of Billy Byrne,
a Chicago street thug in The Mucker. How exactly did he wind up
on the island? That's half the fun of the book!
Science fiction combines with social commentary in two of Burroughs' more
offbeat tales. In The Lost Continent Burroughs speculates what might
have happened if the United States had never entered World War I. America
cuts off all contact with war-torn Europe, and two hundred years later
some intrepid explorers head out to see what has happened to the lost continent
of Europe. In Beyond the Farthest Star Burroughs portrays a planet
entering its second century of total warfare. Burroughs wrote this story
just before the United States entered World War II, and he could see that
modern technology applied to warfare would leave no survivors.
The past was just as intriguing
to Burroughs as the future, and he wrote several worthwhile historical
tales. The Outlaw of Torn is set during England's War of the Roses
and describes the exploits of a Robin Hood-style outlaw. I Am a Barbarian
is the tale of the British slave of Caligula, one of Rome's most ruthless
and cruel emperors. And the western novels The War Chief and Apache
Devil are among Burroughs finest achievements, depicting in heroic
but tragic terms the struggle of Native Americans to hold on to their land
and their way of life.
Edgar Rice Burroughs penned
many more novels than this, but this should serve as a taste of the many
and varied products of his vivid imagination. There is more to Edgar Rice
Burroughs than just Tarzan!
