Book #1
Tarzan: Return to Pal-ul-don
By Will Murray
With the African continent engulfed by World War II, John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, abandons his role as Lord of the Jungle in order to combat the spreading Nazi menace. Flying a P40 Tomahawk warplane, Clayton is sent on his first mission: to rescue the missing British Military Intelligence officer code-named Ilex. But the daring task plunges him into his savage past after he’s forced down in a lost land that seems hauntingly familiar. When Tarzan of the Apes returns to the prehistoric realm called Pal-ul-don, he must revert to his most savage persona, that of Tarzan-jad-guru—Tarzan the Terrible!
Book #2
Tarzan: On the Precipice
by Michael A. Sanford
Cover and Interior Illustrations: Will Meugniot
With Tarzan alone in Wisconsin after nobly allowing Jane to leave with his cousin – who believes he is the rightful heir to the Greystoke estate – Tarzan is despondent and seeks the wilderness to console himself. And there is a vast wilderness just north of him in Canada. Intending to be alone, Tarzan is soon anything but. Captured and put in chains by vicious criminals, Tarzan is pushed off the precipice of a volcanic crater. While surviving that fall he discovers a lost Viking civilization, but he again becomes a captive. And this time the odds are overwhelming. Tarzan’s punishment Includes running unarmed through a gauntlet of a dozen heavily armed Norsemen with axes, swords and hammers. Tarzan’s fight for survival is epic and will keep you fascinated throughout the entire novel. Join Tarzan as he ventures into Canada and encounters untold dangers with deadly consequences that cast doubt on whether Tarzan can ever return to Africa.
Book #3
Tarzan Trilogy
by Thomas Zachek
Cover Art: Joe Jusko / Interior Illustrations: Douglas Klauba
Three tales of Tarzan at Point Station – a remote English outpost near the Waziri homelands – set during the advent of World War II. With greater European intrusion to the Bolongo River Basin, Tarzan becomes embroiled in increasingly dangerous events as cultures clash.
1] Tarzan and the “Fountain of Youth”: Searching for the missing son of a friend, Tarzan encounters agents of an unscrupulous pharmaceutical company exploiting jungle resources for its own profit.
2] Tarzan and the Cross of Vengeance: A team of archaeologists make a groundbreaking discovery; a group of well-meaning but naive American missionaries arriving to convert the native tribes; and a ruthless band of men with a dark purpose stir up a heady mix of challenges for Tarzan, fomenting an intertribal war that only he can stop.
3] Tarzan the Conqueror: When the Third Reich invades Africa to exploit the land for riches and enslave the native populations in labor camps, Tarzan leads the tribes in an un-precedented tribal resistance.
Book #4
Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy Under Siege
by Ralph N. Laughlin & Ann E. Johnson
Cover Art: Tom Gianni / Interior Illustrations: Mike Grell
This is a seminal book as it introduces four generations of Tarzan, including Tarzan’s great grandson, Jonathan, who is unsure of his place in the Tarzan Legacy. Also in this novel, Tarzan’s African estate is demolished and many people are killed by an unknown guerrilla militia; Tarzan’s son, Jack, is accused of Dian Fossey’s murder and is sought by the authorities; and Tarzan’s grandson, Jackie – who runs the behemoth Greystoke Trust – is accused and imprisoned for crimes against the Crown – a capital offense. This compelling tale, set in the 1980s, chronicles the family’s epic battle for survival.
Book #5
A Soldier of Poloda
Further Adventures Beyond the Farthest Star
Cover Art: Chris Peuler / Interior Illustrations: Earl Geier
Like fellow Earthman, Tangor from the story Beyond the Farthest Star, American OSS officer Thomas Randolph is mysteriously teleported to a foreign planet where he lands in the center of a 100-year war that mirrors the Allied Powers’ struggle against Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich. Unlike Tangor, Randolph – now Tomas Ran – finds himself behind enemy lines where he gains a first-hand view of the inner workings of the corrupt Kapar empire. Will Tomas, using his OSS skills, be able to devise a plan to escape with the beautiful Unisan prisoner, Loris Kiri, that will allow them to join her countrymen in their struggle against the Kapars?
American novelist Edgar Rice Burroughs debuted the world of Poloda in the pulp story Beyond the Farthest Star in 1940 just as Hitler’s Nazis marched across Europe and the Imperial Japanese extended their reach across the South Pacific. Burroughs’ youthful idealism regarding the nobility of America’s previous war efforts had given way to a mature perspective of the savagery of combat that stains every battlefield. Burroughs’ deeply-held views are reflected in this tale about a planet ravaged by 100 years of conflict as the nation of Unis devotes its entire existence to the struggle of freedom against tyranny.

Jane: The Woman Who Loved Tarzan
by Robin Maxwell
Cambridge, England, 1905. Jane Porter is hardly a typical woman of her time. The only female student in Cambridge University's medical program, she is far more comfortable in a lab coat dissecting corpses than she is in a corset and gown sipping afternoon tea. A budding paleoanthropologist, Jane dreams of traveling the globe in search of fossils that will prove the evolutionary theories of her scientific hero, Charles Darwin. When dashing American explorer Ral Conrath invites Jane and her father to join an expedition deep into West Africa, she can hardly believe her luck. Africa is every bit as exotic and fascinating as she has always imagined, but Jane quickly learns that the lush jungle is full of secrets?and so is Ral Conrath. When danger strikes, Jane finds her hero, the key to humanity's past, and an all-consuming love in one extraordinary man: Tarzan of the Apes. Jane is the first version of the Tarzan story written by a woman and authorized by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate. Its publication marked the centennial of the original Tarzan of the Apes.

The Martian Legion: In Quest of Xonthron
By Jake "Buddy" Saunders
Presenting a Pantheon of ERB Heroes Conceived by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Brought to life by Jake (Buddy) Sanders, Russ Cochran and Team
In 1913, Edgar Rice Burroughs contemplated penning a crossover tale uniting his two greatest creations, Tarzan and John Carter of Mars. He ultimately gave the idea up as unworkable, concerned that he couldn’t do justice to both heroes in one novel. In an alternate universe, Burroughs not only wrote that tale, he lived it—and presented the manuscript to author Jake “Buddy” Saunders' grandfather. Decades later, Saunders has chosen to share it with the world.

Tarzan Slept Here
By Michael Hatt
For over two decades, the “small town” of Coldwater, Michigan provided a “big city” getaway for Tarzan author, Edgar Rice Burroughs. Tarzan Slept Here details the authors time spent in Coldwater, the summer home to his wife’s family, the Hulberts. A pair of Burroughs’ well-known works were penned in Coldwater: “Beyond Thirty” was imagined at Sunnyside Farm; and the fourth chapter of Jungle Tales of Tarzan was written while overlooking Morrison Lake. Written by Michigan author and historian, Michael A. Hatt, and illustrated with numerous photos and artifacts of the period, Tarzan Slept Here tells of life-changing decisions made by Burroughs, in this often overlooked chapter of his life.

The Teenage Tarzan
By Stan Galloway
Following the 1912 publication of his wildly successful Tarzan of the Apes, Edgar Rice Burroughs authored four bestselling sequels in quick succession. In 1916, Burroughs decided to backtrack a bit by recounting selected adventures from Tarzan's teenage years. The result was Jungle Tales of Tarzan, a dozen short stories bearing such titles as "Tarzan's First Love" and "Tarzan Captures the Moon" and which chronicle the events preceding the youthful hero's ascension to "King of the Jungle." The adolescent phase of the character is the primary focus of this detailed analysis. The context, themes, motifs, and stylistic techniques of Jungle Tales of Tarzan are all fully explored, as well as the property's literary antecedents and its links to the various comic book and film adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs' most celebrated and enduring creation.

Tarzan, Jungle King of Popular Culture
By David Lemmo
"If you're looking for a well-researched and well-written history of Edgar Rice Burrough's best-known fictional creation, you needn't look any further. Tarzan fans will devour this book"--Booklist
From his first appearance in 1912, Tarzan became a multimedia franchise whose cultural influence extended well beyond mere entertainment. The original 20th century superhero, the Lord of the Apes was the inspiration behind such early archetypes as The Shadow and Doc Savage, themselves the basis for heroes like Batman and Superman. Long before Comic-Cons and Trekkies, the first Tarzan fan club was formed in America in 1916, pioneering the fandom movement that pervades modern pop culture. This book examines Tarzan in his various media representations--hunter, warrior, secret agent, fighter of communists and Nazis--and in his numerous story arcs, including crossover adventures featuring historical characters like Arthur Conan Doyle and Nikola Tesla.

Alex Vernon

On Tarzan
By Alex Vernon
On Tarzan is a sometimes playful, sometimes serious, and always provocative consideration of the twentieth century's best-known fictional character. It is also the first book-length investigation of a century's worth of Tarzan's incarnations and our varied imaginative responses to them. As Alex Vernon looks at how and why we have accorded mythical, archetypal status to Tarzan, he takes stock of the Tarzan books, films, and comics as well as some of the many faux- and femme-Tarzan rip-offs, the toys and other tie-in products, the fanzines, and the appropriation of Tarzan's image in the media.
