Before Social Media There Was ERBzine Eclectica that we debuted in January 2000.
Our ERB Motes & Quotes Eclectica was a weekly showcase for all.
This was one of many Webpages that were featured in each week's ERBzine Webzine 
-- an online fanzine that we have published every week since 1996.
the latest ERB news, releases, readers letters, and a boundless collection of items 
of interest to Burroughs and SF/Adventure Fans. 
Images were smaller then as the Internet and computer systems were slower 
-- also server storage was much more expensive. 
Sadly, some of the off-site non-ERBzine links we've shared are no longer active 
- that, we have no control over but they are left here as a curiosity or reference.

New oxygen machine will let astronauts live on Mars

NASA scientists have successfully tested a machine capable of extracting oxygen from the dusty atmosphere of Mars.  Such a device will be needed if astronauts are to spend the year or more on the Martian surface that would be part of any manned mission to the Red Planet. The prototype, about the size of a microwave oven, was placed in a chamber which mimicked the cold, hostile environment. After several days it was able to produce substantial amounts of pure oxygen from the thin Martian carbon dioxide air. Dr David Kaplan, chief scientist behind the project at the Johnson space centre in Houston, Texas, said it "performed brilliantly". The solar-powered machine was supposed to fly to Mars on a lander Nasa planned to launch next year. But the lander - identical to another probe lost last December - has been delayed until at least 2003.Mars is so far away that a round trip would take at least three years, including a year on the surface. Carrying all the water, oxygen and food needed to support astronauts on such a voyage would be impossible, so most of it would have to be produced on the planet.

Ink drawing of "Death of Kala" by Richard Carsley
I'm a life long ERB fan. At first it was just the Tarzan stories and a few titles like the Lost Continent, The Monster Men (which I think I bought for the Frazetta covers), but in the last couple of years I included almost all of his titles. I really enjoyed his western novels. I'll be 53 this July and later will retire from my job as a police officer for the last 30 years. My next line of work is in Real Estate. I have already started to work part time and will go full time after I retire.  In my off time I draw. The main source of my work has been ERB titles. I have done some work that has been published. Several years ago I drew a story for a comic that was a parody of the Rocketeer. I would really like to see a Mars series in comic book form drawn by the likes of Frank Cho. Speaking of comics, I see Dark Horse has canceled the Tarzan River of Blood series. Do you know if we the fans will ever see the conclusion of this neat story? I'm new to the on line world but really enjoy what you are doing.Thanks for such a fine product.
