Edgar Rice Burroughs
A Princess Of Mars

 

Edgar Rice Burroughs will probably always be best remembered as the author of Tarzan Of The Apes, and the creator of its titular hero.

Many luminaries of science fiction literature have mentioned having read and enjoyed these novels during their formative years.

 


Quotable
