    A Princess of Mars, by Edgar Rice Burroughs

    One of the earliest commercially successful science fantasy novel series was Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom series, and A Princess of Mars was the first book in the cycle.

    I've read the first two Tarzan novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs and I have noticed that there are many others. What I'm wondering is that are they all worth reading? Does the quality of the books deteriate or are they all of the same high standard of the first two?

    The Caspak Trilogy

    The Caspak Trilogy (The Land that Time Forgot, The People that Time Forgot, Out of Time's Abyss) by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Although fans might dispute harshly, I believe this to be the best of Burrough's series that I have read. Whilst Tarzan may have the apes and the unforgettable character...

    Tarzan of the Apes (Book Club)

    Please begin the discussion of July's title, Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs. My first thoughts: 1) This is a much older book, does it stand the test of time? Or do some of the thoughts and ideas presented betray its age? 2) Any thoughts on the comments the author was trying to...
