Swords Against the Moon Men

An all-new science fantasy adventure novel by the acclaimed coauthor of the Ancient Opar series, Christopher Paul Carey  

Cover Art by Chris Peuler and Interior Illustrations by Mark Wheatley 

Hailed by author and science fiction scholar Richard Lupoff as a “masterpiece of science fiction” and a “pioneer work of the modern school of social extrapolation in science fiction,” Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic lunar trilogy—The Moon Maid, The Moon Men, and The Red Hawk—tells the generational tale of humanity’s fight for freedom against alien conquerors from the Moon. The hero, Julian, finds his soul perpetually reincarnated in the bodies of his successive grandsons, fated to confront—down through the centuries—the vicious Kalkars who have subjugated Earth.

The epic saga continues in this novel, Swords Against the Moon Men.

In 2076 AD, Earth has been conquered and humanity brutally enslaved under the cruel tyranny of the Kalkar invaders whose evil was spawned from Va-nah, the Moon’s hollow interior. Julian 7thdescendant of the great hero who led the first expedition to Va-nah and nearly defeated the Kalkars—receives a mysterious transmission from the planet Barsoom.

The desperate plea from the Red Planet swiftly hurls Julian upon a lonely quest into the heart of Va-nah where he teams up with an U-ga princess and a fierce alien quadruped, and launches a daring rescue to save a lost Barsoomian ambassadorial mission. The success of this mission depends on an unlikely alliance with the Warlord of Mars to assail the enemy’s impregnable stronghold.

If Julian fails in this quest, humanity—and the entire solar system—will never escape the iron grip of the Moon Men.

New Comic Strip launch: The Girl From Farris’s

Posted on November 11, 2017

Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. Presents 

The Girl From Farris’s
an all new web comic in our comic subscription lineup

In a dark alley, a young woman wearing very little clothing runs for her life. A cop intervenes, saving her. But in a sinister twist, that cop takes her vulnerability and uses it as a weapon to coerce her into framing an evil man – the man she was initially running from – with murder. 

In the courtroom, a successful business man sitting on the jury sees this woman – Maggie – not as a witness to be judged but as a woman to be saved. His anonymous interventions, ironically, helps Maggie gain a better life while ensnaring him in the same trap she encountered – leading him down a path of personal and financial ruin and alcoholism. 

Can two innocent people, facing evil, greed, and deceit, find real justice, and the possibility of happiness, when the only weapon they possess is a belief in each other?

Worlds at War!
Behind enemy lines,450,000 light-years from Earth 

Like fellow Earthman, Tangor from the story Beyond the Farthest Star, American OSS officer Thomas Randolph is mysteriously teleported to a foreign planet where he lands in the center of a 100-year war that mirrors the Allied Powers’ struggle against Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich. 

Unlike Tangor, Randolph — now Tomas Ran — finds himself behind enemy lines where he gains a first-hand view of the inner workings of the corrupt Kapar empire. Will Tomas, using his OSS skills, be able to devise a plan to escape with the beautiful Unisan prisoner, Loris Kiri, that will allow them to join her countrymen in their struggle against the Kapars?

Order your Soft Cover of A Soldier of Poloda Today

 

American novelist Edgar Rice Burroughs debuted the world of Poloda in the pulp story Beyond the Farthest Star in 1940 just as Hitler’s Nazis marched across Europe and the Imperial Japanese extended their reach across the South Pacific. Burroughs’ youthful idealism regarding the nobility of America’s previous war efforts had given way to a mature perspective of the savagery of combat that stains every battlefield. Burroughs’ deeply-held views are reflected in this tale about a planet ravaged by 100 years of conflict as the nation of Unis devotes its entire existence to the struggle of freedom against tyranny.

Author Lee Strong created this second adventure on the planet Poloda, which lies beyond the Globular Cluster NGC 7006 — 450,000 light years away from earth. Join Tomas Ran as he explores Poloda, battles Kapars, and finds love Beyond the Farthest Star.

New Tarzan Adventure Novel Explores Possible Solution to Dian Fossey Murder

Posted on September 7, 2017

Book #4 in The Wild Adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs Series
Available in Hard cover with dust jacket; Soft cover; and Digital editions   

Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. has published Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy Under Siege, a work of fiction that addresses the still-unsolved 1985 murder of primatologist Dian Fossey.

Fossey, an academic and, to many, a real-life Wonder Woman, came to the Rwandan jungle intent on studying and preserving the habitat of endangered mountain gorillas. Fossey swiftly found herself combating the cruelty of poachers and the heartlessness of oil and mining interests, which indiscriminately killed the gorillas out of greed, while filling their pockets with ill-gotten gains. Fossey transformed from scholar to bush guerilla fighter, working to confuse and defeat these environmental terrorists. Tragically, Fossey was brutally murdered in her home in Rwanda on December 26, 1985. On that day, the world lost a champion of the environment, wild endangered habitats and animals.

Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy Under Siege is a seminal book as it introduces four generations of Tarzan, including Tarzan’s great grandson, Jonathan, who is unsure of his place in the Tarzan Legacy. Also in this novel, Tarzan’s African estate is demolished and many people are killed by an unknown guerilla militia; Tarzan’s son, Jack, is accused of Dian Fossey’s murder and is sought by the authorities; and Tarzan’s grandson, Jackie — who runs the behemoth Greystoke Trust — is accused and imprisoned for crimes against the Crown — a capital offense. This compelling tale, set in the 1980s, chronicles the family’s epic battle for survival.

New Comic Strip launch: The Moon Men

Posted on September 2, 2017

Edgar Rice Burroughs Presents 

The Moon Men – A Trilogy of Future History
an all new web comic in our comic subscription lineup

Written at the close of World War I, Burroughs’ alternate history tells of a great 50-year war that finally concludes in 1967 with an Afllied victory culminating in world peace and total freedom. As the new dawn begins, Earth is learning how to put war behind her while simultaneously launching a technologically advanced space craft with a five man crew on its maiden voyage to Mars.

The voyage’s primary mission is to forge diplomatic relations between the civilizations of Mars (known as Barsoom by its inhabitants) and Earth. The ship’s most senior officer, Captain Julian, is forced to deal with space sickness and panic from his old flight school rival, Lt Commander Orthis, who is damaging the ship in his fear — leading to Orthis being put in irons. Orthis, consumed with rage, sabotages the ship’s engines resulting in a forced landing on the Moon.

During the descent, the spaceship is caught in a lunar spiral that pulls the ship deep into the center of the Moon revealing an earth-like environment with plants, animals and inhabitants. Julian gives Orthis a chance of redemption — not only for Orthis’ sake but for the survival of his crew, as every man is needed.

Julian and the crew explore and discover a variety of creatures and civilizations. While navigating the majestic forest-like inner moon, they meet the beautiful princess Nah-ee-lah, who captures the eye of both Julian and Orthis. Will Julian’s moral instincts prevail when faced with Orthis’ selfish desires?

The Earthmen soon encounter the warlike civilization of the Kalkars — human-like creatures whose thirst for power will capture the diabolical passions of Orthis. Together, Orthis and the Kalkars turn their desires toward Earth, launching an invasion and 400-year occupation, pitting future generations of Julian’s and Orthis’ descendants in the ultimate struggle of human freedom versus totalitarian rule — an underlying theme in many of Burroughs’ adventures.

See our exciting new web comic strip for the whole story. Written by our prolific writer, Martin Powell, and with beautiful illustrations from Ricardo Jurado — you are in for an exciting read.
