Jeff "Elmo" Long Compiling Material for his Podcast
Jeff "Elmo Lincoln" Long, discovered ERB in his grandfather's basement when he was nine. Well, not ERB himself, but "The Land That Time Forgot" and several of the Mars books. Has been reading and collecting ever since. Grew up in Wisconsin, lived in England for a year, did some traveling in Europe and India. Lived in Pennsylvania for about eight years, but now makes his home in John Carter's old stomping grounds: Virginia. He's a newspaper reporter for the Daily Press in Newport News -- which The Barsoomian Blade is *not* based upon.

"Covering the Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs"
By Jeff Long, Chris Wright
From Lulu Press at $15.78
Probing the fantastic worlds of the man
who created John Carter of Mars and Tarzan of the Apes
from the perspective of that ancient tabloid newspaper,
The Barsoomian Blade.

With a dash of The Onion, and in the tradition of Tarzan Alive
by Philip Jose Farmer, "Covering the Worlds of Edgar Rice
Burroughs" mixes analysis with a fair amount of absurdity.
That kind of scholarship can only come from a life-long love of
the works penned by the Master of Adventure.

Long and Wright dive headfirst into a universe
where princesses are incomparably beautiful, villains are unquestionably evil,
and heroes are indisputably noble.

The reporters and editors in that reality are ... well ... like
reporters and editors everywhere constantly chasing a roaring good story.
And Burroughs provided dozens, in far-flung locales ranging from the Red Planet,
to the jungles of Africa and the core of the Earth.
