This book collects in a single volume all of  Edgar Rice Burroughs' non-Tarzan short stories and mystery puzzles, most of which have never before appeared in print with an introduction by Patrick H. Adams:
    • "An Autobiographical Sketch" (originally published in Amazing Stories, June, 1941).
    • "Jonathan's Patience," an ironic, previously overlooked tale that appears to predate Burroughs' professional work.
    • "The Avenger" (1912), a dark, violent story of revenge.
    • "For The Fool's Mother" (1912), ERB's first Western.
    • "The Little Door" (1917), a powerful tale of love, war, and horror.
    • "Calling All Cars" (1931), murder and romance in the hills of Los Angeles.
    • "Elmer" (1936), a defrosted caveman comes to Hollywood. (This is ERB's original version of the story his magazine editor revised into "The Resurrection of Jimber-Jaw.")
    • "The Strange Adventure of Mr. Dinnwiddie" (1940), humor, seduction, and intrigue aboard an ocean liner bound for Hawaii.
    • "Misogynists Preferred" (1941), demonstrating what happens when a gaggle of woman-hating men meets a covey of man-hating women.
    • "Uncle Bill" (1944), a tale of horror in everyday life.
    • "The Red Necktie" (circa 1932), a stand-alone mystery puzzle.
    • "Murder: A Collection of Short Murder Mystery Puzzles" (circa 1932-1940), seven fictional puzzles, featuring ERB's last series character to appear in book form Police Inspector Muldoon and his trusted biographer and sidekick, Edgar Rice Burroughs!
    • "The Dupuyster Case" (circa 1932), an unfinished Muldoon mystery puzzle.

The Tarzana Project by Guidry & Adkins
This is a serious effort to bring into print in book form all of the remaining unpublished and/or uncollected works of the celebrated author, Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Guidry & Adkins, Publishers, was formed by two long-time Burroughs fans and collectors specifically to publish the previously uncollected works of Edgar Rice Burroughs.

John H. Guidry is best known in fan circles as the founder of the Edgar Rice Burroughs Amateur Press Association  (ERB-APA) and chairman of the 1988 World Science Fiction Convention in New Orleans.

Patrick H. Adkins, editor of the Tarzana Project, is a professional editor and the author of several fantasy novels.

Both have been active in Burroughs fandom since the early 1960s.
