About the Author

Phil Burger   Phillip R. Burger is a freelance writer and editor living on an island near Seattle.  A graduate of the University of Oregon and Utah State University, he has written extensively on the life and writings of Edgar Rice Burroughs.  Called a “nimble Burroughs scholar and essayist” by Tarzan Forever author John Taliaferro, his researches on Burroughs have taken him to Idaho, Arizona, Oregon, Kentucky, and the National Archives in Washington, D.C.  George McWhorter of the University of Louisville’s Burroughs Memorial Collection praised Mr. Burger’s master’s thesis Glimpses of a World Past: Edgar Rice Burroughs, the West, and the Birth of an American Writer as “far and away the best book ever written about ERB.”  As a "Burroughs expert" he has been a consultant to newspapers, scholarly presses and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, as well as to Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. He has also created content for their Tarzan.org Website.

Mr. Burger has provided essays for the University of Nebraska Press' reprinting of several Burroughs novels in their Bison Frontiers of Imagination series.  He has revised Richard Lupoff's classic Edgar Rice Burroughs: Master of Adventure for the University of Nebraska Press, is currently editing Burroughs' writing notebooks for publication, and is working on a detailed study of Burroughs' early cowboy and cavalry days.
