Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe™ Canon

The Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe is the interconnected literary cosmos created by the Master of Adventure and continued in new canonical works authorized by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., the company based in Tarzana, California, founded by Mr. Burroughs in 1923. The company is presently engaged in a multiyear process of releasing the entire 80-plus volumes of original core canon written by Mr. Burroughs in the Edgar Rice Burroughs Authorized Library, as well as publishing expanded canon under the banner of the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe. In addition, the company has partnered in the creative development of a growing number of selected comic books, as well as begun publishing its own comic books, canonizing these works into the expanding Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe continuity. Please note that when the new ERB Universe tales reference other authorized media (such as licensed ERB literature, comic books, cartoons, film, television, etc.) that does not appear in the list below, only those specific elements referenced are canonized into the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe continuity, not the entire works from which they derive.

The following list comprises works in the official canon of the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe, and will be updated as additional works are incorporated. The links below are to the authorized editions of the canon.
