Completists' Corner

The following items are listed for your convenience.  I can't vouch for them, either because I haven't seen them myself or because I don't especially like them. Still, you may feel differently. (You might feel your collection won't be complete without them.)   Either way, it's still interesting to see what's available. . . .








Adult Books

The Tarzan Chronicles by Howard E. Green,  hardcover, Hyperion Press. The major Disney-produced adult work on the character and new film, which has been described as a sort of "The Making of Disney's Tarzan."

Tarzan Forever: The Life of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Creator of Tarzan by John Taliaferro. An error-filled, unfairly negative (but highly readable) biography that owes an enormous debt to Irwin Porges' Edgar Rice Burroughs: The Man Who Created Tarzan (which, unfortunately, is out of print).

The Corpse at the Haworth Tandoori: Edgar and Tarzan by Robert Barnard, hardcover, 256 pages, Scribner (April 1999). Mystery novel; your guess is as good as mine as to its connection to ERB.

The Poetics of Imperialism: Translation and Colonization from the Tempest to Tarzan by Eric Cheyfitz, Paperback (expanded edition), University of Pennsylvania Press.

To Tangle With Tarzan: Seven Short Stories and an Epic (African Writers Library) by Chudi Uwazurike, paperback, Red Sea Press, Inc.

The Land That Time Forgot / The People That Time Forgot / The Lost Continent / The Oakdale Affair by Edgar Rice Burroughs, paperback, 400 pages, Blue Unicorn Editions. Another contender in the Most Botched Contents of an ERB Anthology Contest. (Where is "Out of Time's Abyss"?)

Tarzan of the Apes: Three Complete Novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs (Greg Suriano, Editor), hardcover, 672 pages, Grammercy. Another botched anthology.

Tarzan Tales Collection (3 Volumes) by Edgar Rice Burroughs, paperback, 1200 pages, Blue Unicorn Editions. (Blue Unicorn produces "print on demand" books, which are not attractive.)

Tarzan: The Epic Adventures by R. A. Salvatore, paperback. Based on recent TV fiasco.

Tarzan: The Lost Adventure by Edgar Rice Burroughs & Joe R. Lansdale, illus. by Gary Gianni, M. Kaluta, Charles Vess, Dark Horse hardcover. Expanded and mostly rewritten version of ERB's unfinished Tarzan novel. Also available in mass market paperback.

Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs, hardcover, Amereon Ltd.

The Son of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs, hardcover, Amereon Ltd.
