Edgar Rice Burroughs was the author of the Barsoom series in the early 1900’s as well as the creator of Tarzan. The Barsoom series is where my heart is. It’s the basis for the movie John Carter and a spectacularly fantastic story line. To imagine that Edgar was writing about a civilization on Mars in 1913 when space travel was true science fiction and not today’s science fact is a wonder in itself. I’ll touch on a few of his books further through October, but if you get a chance to just read up on the man himself please do. I have a few of his books in my personal collection and consider them absolute treasures.
