Richard A. Lupoff
Edgar Rice Burroughs: Master of Adventure by Richard Lupoff
"In 1963, I was working for IBM in the Time/Life Building at 50th Street and Sixth Avenue. Pat and I had long since moved to Manhattan and had a wonderful apartment on East 73rd Street. I had a second job, moonlighting as an editor for Canaveral Press at 63 Fourth Avenue. Working for Canaveral, I found myself acting as Edgar Rice Burroughs' posthumous editor. After assembling a couple of volumes of Burroughs' previously uncollected short stories and preparing several of his unpublished novels for release, I was asked by the owners of the company, Jack Biblo and Jack Tannen, to write a book about him. That was the genesis of Edgar Rice Burroughs: Master of Adventure, my first book." ~ Richard Lupoff

Canaveral Press
Ref: The Crystal Violoinist Blogsite
Canaveral Press, a division of the Biblo & Tannen mail order company, was a New York-based publisher of science fiction and related material, active from the early 1960s through the mid-1970s. It was owned by Jack Biblo and Jack Tannen.

Most Canaveral Press titles were reprints of Edgar Rice Burroughs material on which the copyright had lapsed, but Canaveral was on good terms with the Burroughs heirs, and several Canaveral Burroughs titles are legitimate first editions of material not previously published in book form and in some cases not previously published. Canaveral is noted for bringing some of the great illustrators of the 1960ís to the Burroughs materialónotably Roy G. Krenkel, Reed Crandall and Frank Frazetta.

Canaveral also published original material by E. E. Doc Smith, L. Sprague de Camp and Catherine Crook de Camp, and by Richard A. Lupoff, who edited much of the Burroughs material.

Canaveral stopped adding titles to its catalog in the late 1960s, though a number of its existing titles were reprinted in the 1970s. The firm closed down in the late 1970s.
