More new Burroughs editions are being published
than we can keep track of. Most are just plain text print-on-demand reprints
of the usual titles, but occasionally something a little different comes
along. For example, here's a new 8½x11 paperback edition of Tarzan
of the Apes with illustrations by David Burton (left). The introduction
is written by Bob Zeuschner and the appendices
include a map of Tarzanís Africa, the Ape-Language
Dictionary, and "Feral Children in Fiction and Fact" by Serena DuBois.
The book sells for $24.99 (ISBN 0615139450). This is unlikely to be stocked
by any store, but most can order for you, or you can use online sources
such as Amazon.com or B&N.
Barnes & Noble is publishing a series entitled
"Library of Essential Reading Stories" which includes Burroughs. Their
latest issue is More Martian Tales featuring Thuvia Maid of Mars
and Chessmen of Mars, with introduction by Aaron Parrett. This trade-sized
paperback is priced at $8.95 (ISBN 0760780897).
Another recent Barnes & Noble offering in
their classics series is Tarzan of the Apes with introduction and
notes by Maura Spiegel. Also a paperback, it sells for $5.95 (ISBN 1593082274).
You can buy either of these at your local B&N store or online at bn.com.
Another recent entry is Leonaur Books, based in
England. They are publishing Burroughs in attractive hardcover and softcover
editions, each containing two or three novels.
The Moon, Martian, and Pellucidar series, as well as Tarzan, have been
published.Among this publisher's other offerings
are classic works by Stanley G. Weinbaum and George Allan England.
