DANTON'S LAST INTERVIEW
The World's Number One Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine
June 2008 Edition
A few weeks back Danton and I did a two-hour, long-distance telephone interviews for Sean Egen between London, England ~ Tarzana, California ~ and Brandon, Manitoba. We also supplied many scans of ERB photos, posters, and covers. The result was a colourful, fully-illustrated, and in-depth article on Edgar Rice Burroughs in which Sean remembers "the many creations of the larger-than-life adventurer and writer."
Danton died before he saw the results of our interviews and before Sean's complimentary copies reached us. He would have been very pleased with the feature. This very collectible June issue is now on newsstands worldwide.

A TESLA STAINED-GLASS WINDOW IN PRAGUE
A small but vocal group of American physicists are waging an ongoing campaign to restore Nikola Tesla to his proper place in the history of electricity. In the US, he is a relative unknown compared to names like Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse, yet arguably none of what those two did would have been possible without Tesla.

To date nothing significant has ever been produced about Edgar Rice Burroughs and no documentary focusing on his life and career has ever been made. We feel it is time to put him on the level of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. The purpose of Burroughs: Master of Fantasy is to tell the life story of the father of adventure and fantasy, ERB. This piece will inspire a sense of pride in the legacy that Burroughs brought to the art of adventure writing as a genre and a deeper appreciation for the importance of preserving its history for future generations.
MASTER OF FANTASY
Our projects for Year 2007
The Fantasy Writers Of Our Time
Episode 1: Burroughs, Master of Fantasy
Written by Patrice Bonneyrat
Global Horizon Entertainment, Inc. is proud to present Burroughs: Master of Fantasy, the true story of the man. This documentary will follow the life of the Burroughs family after the Civil War. An introduction on the kind of society in which ERB grew up is going to be essential to understand his state of mind. The industrial revolution brought incertitude to the population regarding the new technologies and their use. A free mind like that of ERB was shut down and his professional misfortune ended when he could finally express himself through writing. At last, his mind could go where it wanted to: inside the imaginary world.
We will also follow ERB’s personal life and career through his books and the different characters that he created. Following in parallel will be a description of the society in which Burrough’s writing evolved: the motion picture as a new art form, WWI, the pulp fiction magazines, the 1929 Wall Street crash, the first comic books etc.
We hope you will come and join us as we explore the life and times of Edgar Rice Burroughs - the man and the writer.
