Tarzan Trilogy is also available in hardcover with a dust jacket 

AUTHOR 
Thomas Zachek

I grew up on the Tarzan movies and, to a lesser extent, the comics. But I became hooked on the real Tarzan in high school after picking up a new Ace paperback edition of Tarzan and the Lost Empire for fifty cents, the one with the Frank Frazetta cover of our hero, monkey on his back, hanging from a limb on a cliff and looking down upon the Roman city. I went on to collect the entire series of Ace and Ballantine paperback reissues of Burroughs’ tales (and still have them). I discovered that Burroughs’ stories were quite unlike the family-friendly Tarzan of the movies, with inarticulate Johnny Weismuller as the hulking hero living for some reason in the jungle with a classy, aristocratic Jane. No, Burroughs’ hero was a British lord who spoke educated English and had a fascinating backstory.
I was impressed with the far superior level of development and action found in these tales. I attempted writing my first Tarzan tale in 2005 (Tarzan and the “Fountain of Youth”) as something of a lark, and then followed it, to date, with six more Tarzan tales. Friends encouraged me to try to get the stories published. I am grateful to Jim Sullos of ERB, Inc., for giving me the chance. Here are my first three. In these stories, I have tried to craft realistic, page-turning adventure tales featuring classic Tarzan elements while at the same time taking the character in directions that have never been done in Tarzan stories before. I invite you to share your thoughts and comments with me at zachekbooks@gmail.com.

The Mars rover just sent back data that has scientists completely stumped

Posted on February 7, 2017

The Curiosity rover has been cruising around on Mars since late 2012, so you’d think that scientists would have a pretty good handle on the kind of data it’s been sending back by now. However, some of the latest readings the rover has taken are totally contradicting many of the theories scientists have about Mars, and most notably when and how liquid water existed on its surface.

Bo Hampton

Bo Hampton (born in High Point, N.C. 1954) is an American comic book and cartoon artist. He graduated from the School of Visual Arts, New York City. He drew, wrote and painted comics and graphic novel for 24 years, always with a bent toward realism that was fairly uncommon in the medium. Some art highlights from that period include: BATMAN: CASTLE OF THE BAT a graphic novel for DC Comics, Legend of Sleepy Hollow for Tundra publishing and Verdilak, a horror story co­written and painted for NBM publishing.

 

Hampton spent a year as a professor at Savannah College of Art and Design, helping to develop the original incarnation of their Sequential Arts program before moving into the realms of storyboarding animated shows and films. He has worked on the animated ExtremeGhostbusters for SONY (TVepisodes and full length video feature) as well as Superman (Warner Bros.) and created Batman animation for 2 Cartoon Network spots.

 

Bo currently resides outside of Atlanta and recent work includes the graphic novels SIGHT UNSEEN (IMAGE) DEMONS OF SHERWOOD (IDW) AND RIVEN (Dark Horse). And even more recently he created a 4 part mini-series called 3 Devils (IDW) and is at this exact moment providing art for The Once and Future Tarzan (Dark Horse).

 

ACCOMMODATIONS: The Quality Inn and Suites (formerly The Comfort Inn), is currently undergoing extensive renovation and will become a model convention center. Reservations may be made by calling 517 278 2017 and mentioning the Dum-Dum 2017 convention. Special rates for the event have been set at $ 79.99 per night. Single king size bed or double twin bed rooms are available. Handicap accessible rooms are also available.

 

Attendees flying in are recommended to use the Fort Wayne International Airport, Fort Wayne, Indiana. The airport is located about an hour’s drive south of Coldwater. No shuttle service is available and a rent a car will be a necessity. I-69 is direct to town.

 

THE CITY OF COLDWATER

Coldwater, Michigan, retreat and vacation location for Edgar Rice Burroughs for almost twenty years, will be highlighted for the Dum-Dum with a bus tour on Friday, August 4, 2017. Sites that will be visited will include: Sunnyside Farm, the Hulbert family summer residence; Morrison Lake, site of Camp Branch and ERB’s Country Place; J. B. Branch and Co. department store building, Burroughs’ in-laws; and the Wing House Museum, a Second Empire Style home built in 1875, the year ERB was born. Photo opportunities will be available at all locations.
