The Edgar Rice Burroughs Authorized Library’s NEWEST SET OF FOUR VOLUMES (Tarzan #21–24)—Tarzan the Magnificent, Tarzan and “The Foreign Legion”, Tarzan and the Madman, and Tarzan and the Castaways—is now available for preorder, at the special SALE PRICE of FOUR BOOKS FOR THE PRICE OF THREE! These handsome hardcover editions feature gorgeous new cover art and frontispieces by Joe Jusko, who with this most recent set of books becomes the first artist ever to illustrate the covers and frontispieces of all 24 novels in the main Tarzan series; forewords by Wolf Larson (star of the 1991–1994 Tarzan television series), Robert B. Zeuschner (author of Edgar Rice Burroughs: The Bibliography), Thomas Yeates (award-winning illustrator of numerous Tarzan and ERB comic books and comic strips), and Joe Jusko (legendary fantasy illustrator); afterwords by noted ERB scholar Henry G. Franke III; and a bounty of rare and previously unpublished archival materials, including the first publication anywhere of “Murder in the Jungle,” the original version of “Tarzan and the Jungle Murders,” taken directly from Edgar Rice Burroughs’ typescript before the story was heavily rewritten by a pulp magazine editor! (For completeness, “Tarzan and the Jungle Murders” will also be included in Tarzan and the Castaways alongside “Murder in the Jungle.”)
Estimated Shipping Date: We are hoping to ship preorders for Tarzan volumes #21–24 before the end of the year, dependent upon possible delays from our printer, in which case the books would likely ship in January 2024.

2024 is the Year of Mars! Now that we have completed the historic accomplishment of bringing all 24 volumes of the main Tarzan series back into print for the first time in decades, we plan to announce preorders for the first three volumes in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ renowned Barsoom series in the first quarter of next year! If all goes according to plan, we’ll also be releasing a second set of ERB’s original Barsoom books in late 2024, as well as cuing up two brand-new Mars novels on our publishing schedule: A Princess of Mars: Shadow of the Assassins by Ann Tonsor Zeddies in the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe series and Gauntlets of Mars by Chris L Adams in the Wild Adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs series. Again, please make sure you are signed up for our newsletter to be notified of these and other exciting releases.
