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 Moon Men

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.

New Sci-Fi Adventure Novel Behind Enemy Lines, 450,000 Light-Years from Earth

Book #5 in The Wild Adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs Series — available now!

Worlds at War!

Behind Enemy Lines,

450,000 Light-Years from Earth

by Lee Strong

A Soldier of Poloda: Further Adventures Beyond the Farthest Star

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?

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.

The Greystoke Legacy Under Siege lifts the TARZAN series to new, ground-breaking heights with a high adventure that immerses TARZAN and his offspring in an epic battle for their family’s survival. Set in the 1980s:

  • Includes a solution to the real-life murder of Dian Fossey, who devoted her life to the study and preservation of African gorillas;
  • Introduces Tarzan’s great grandson, Jonathan – a young man struggling to seek his place in an adult world;
  • Unveils the inner workings of Tarzan’s massive family wealth – the Greystoke Trust, a London-based financial estate whose global influence reaches into the highest levels of business and government.

This rapid, page-turning adventure travels from Africa to London to Paris and to Moscow in pursuit of justice because the family is Under Seige:

  • Tarzan’s African estate is demolished by an unknown guerrilla militia, leaving in its wake a leveled complex littered with the dead;
  • The Greystoke Trust, run by grandson Jackie, is accused of capital crimes against the Crown, and Jackie is jailed;
  • Son Jack, the last known person to meet with Dian Fossey, is accused of her murder and is sought by African authorities;
  • Jonathan’s airplane is shot down and crash lands into the African jungle forcing him to call upon his instincts, heritage and martial arts training to survive.

This leap into the late 20th Century will provide intense excitement as chapter after chapter leaves doubt as to the survival of the Greystokes and their legacy. Order now – books ship starting June 12. Visit ERBurroughs.com/store

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 Bibliography

ERB Inc. publishes the “definitive bibliography” by Dr. Robert B. Zeuschner

Tarzana, California. Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. today announced the release of the long-awaited definitive bibliography of the Master of Adventure by longtime Burroughs scholar Dr. Robert B. Zeuschner. The illustrated hardbound volume ships today in two hardbound editions. 

Edgar Rice Burroughs Bibliography 1

Edgar Rice Burroughs, well known for his tales of Tarzan and John Carter of Mars, has been rightfully dubbed The Master of Adventure, but few are aware of the full scope of Burroughs’ literary output in a writing career that spanned four decades. During his lifetime, Burroughs created worlds that ranged from the Earth’s core to the Farthest Star, inhabited by larger-than-life heroes and heroines, populated by unimaginable creatures and captivating landscapes. 

“We are absolutely thrilled to publish this very special book, which has been almost twenty years in the making,” said Jim Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. “We opened our archives to Dr. Zeuschner and he has produced the definitive account of everything published by Edgar Rice Burroughs. This is a one-of-a-kind illustrated bibliography that should be a must for anyone interested in ERB, the history of pulp fiction and the works that inspired Star Wars, Avatar, Superman and every other pulp hero since.”  

The Bibliography features over 2000 annotated, illustrated entries describing ERB publications from 1911 to the present and 500 color images including 1st & reprint edition books & dustjackets, paperbacks and the 97 ERB story-related pulp covers. Both editions are 7 by 10 inch hardcover books.

THE STANDARD EDITION: ISBN: 978-1-945462-00-9 $100 
First edition bound in midnight blue Cialux Italian book cloth with the spine and front cover decorations stamped in gilt. Color wrap-around dust jacket, 736 pages; 600+ images, 500 + in color on glossy stock. Limited to 900 copies See www.ERBurroughs.com

New Comic Subscription Launch: I Am a Barbarian

barbarian1 barbarian2

Edgar Rice Burroughs Presents
I Am a Barbarian
an all new web comic in our subscription lineup

Someday, I will have my revenge. Someday, I will kill Caesar.
This historical tale is a rather free translation of the memoirs of Britannicus – Caligula’s slave for 25 years. Caligula, emperor of Rome from AD 37 to 41, was historically known for being insane. This story contains numerous facets of Caligula’s life, including his popular early acts as emperor and then his descent into madness. 


I Am A Barbarian is a historical novel written by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1941. The only other historical novel penned by Mr. Burroughs – The Master of Adventure – was The Outlaw of Torn which was set in King Henry III’s England and was the second novel he wrote in his fledgling career. Mr. Burroughs wrote his classic, Tarzan of The Apes, just after The Outlaw of Torn.

Britannicus, the arrogant son of a defiant chief in far-off Britain, was just another young barbarian to the haughty Romans who enslaved him. Britannicus’ mother and father were also enslaved by the Romans and he was never able to speak to them again. Britannicus becomes the personal slave of Emperor Caligula’s nephew. In the decadence of Imperial Rome, Britannicus faced death time and again, in the gladiatorial arena, in chariot races, in the twisted hearts of Palaces, and always at the hand of his master, mad Caligula – the bloodiest Roman of them all. 


Britannicus watches as Caligula falsely accuses, fines, and even kills, individuals in order to seize their estates during a financial crisis caused by his own wasteful spending. In order to gain funds, Caligula asks the public to lend the state money; he levies taxes on lawsuits, marriage and prostitution; and begins auctioning the lives of the gladiators at his shows. Once, when Caligula was bored, he ordered his guards to throw scores of people into the arena to be eaten by lions because there were no more criminals to be thrown in the ring.

Only the imagination of Edgar Rice Burroughs could have reincarnated the chariot races, the intrigues, the people, and the sights and sounds of long-dead Imperial Rome. And now the brilliant team of writer Tom Simmons, artist Mike Dubisch, and letterer Jamal Walton brings this larger than life tale – with its vivid story, art and period authenticity – to life in this new Comic Strip. 

Don’t miss it! Subscribe to our new web comic strip, and be thoroughly entertained by the twisting adventure that only Edgar Rice Burroughs can create.

Best Regards,
The Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. Team


WRITER Tom Simmons

“In mid-1941 – with personal health issues mounting and the world once again at war – Edgar Rice Burroughs penned I Am a Barbarian, his second and final historical novel.  The story is dark and decidedly un-Burroughs like, which make adapting it to action/adventure strip format a challenge I’m very excited about,” says screenwriter and graphic novelist Tom Simmons of his latest writing gig. In addition to adaptations for the online strips The Monster Men and The Outlaw of Torn, Tom has several screenplays and graphic novels in progress. “It’s a pleasure to be working with Lovecraft-Award winning artist Mike Dubisch on this effort, as well as with Jamal Walton on yet another ERB, Inc. project.

ARTIST Mike Dubisch

Internationally known fantasy illustrator and graphic novelist Mike Dubisch has his roots in golden age horror comics and pulp Science Fiction. His art has been used in toy design and illustration for Star Wars, The Wheel of Time, and Dungeons and Dragons role playing games, covers for Aliens VS Predator, and graphic adaptations of The Boxcar Children and other children’s literature. His work has appeared inScience Fiction Age, Realms of Fantasy, Weird Tales and the H. P. Lovecraft Magazine of Horror.

“I was huge reader of Burroughs at a young age,  drawn to Tarzan’s jungle adventures amongst the apes, a counterpoint to my obsession with King Kong and giant monsters. Later, John Carter’s fantastic adventures enthralled me at the same time as I discovered the great illustrators and comic artists who ended up shaping my artistic vision.”

Mike is an instructor at the Academy of Art University in San Fransisco. He also creates fine art, prints, and experimental films exploring H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. Mike lives in Phoenix, Arizona with his wife, Carolyn, and three daughters. www.DUBISCH.com

LETTERER Jamal Walton

L Jamal Walton is a web and graphic designer, illustrator, colorist, and letterer currently based in Durham, NC. He has worked on projects big and small: Fist of Justice; Once Upon A Time Machine, Masters of the Universe; and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to name a few.

More recently, Jamal has focused more of his time working on his own comic creations: Warmageddon; Ungoodwise; and Captain Evil & Diabla.  He is always looking for opportunities to display his art at art exhibits and conventions, and to share his experience and skills in the craft of making comics via camps and workshops.

Make Way for Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “The Mucker” WebComic

Returning to the spotlight for the first time in a century, Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic rough ‘n tumble man of action, The Mucker, is set to make his digital debut on Saturday, January 18, 2014, in an all-new adventure strip ­written by Ron Marz and drawn by Lee Moder.

The announcement of the new web comic strip – available exclusively online at EdgarRiceBurroughs.com/comics – was made today by representatives of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., the company founded by the author himself to protect and maintain his works for generations.

The Mucker Web Comic See the new strip…

“I grew up on the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs and, to a large extent, I’m the kind of writer I am because of Edgar Rice Burroughs,” said writer Ron Marz, known for his work on Silver Surfer, Green Lantern and Witchblade, among others. “I’m following not only in his footsteps, but in those of so many other creators who have left their mark on these concepts and characters. My job is to make these stories worthy for existing fans and completely accessible for new fans.”

Though not as well-known as Burroughs’ other works of science fiction, fantasy and adventure, like Tarzan of the Apes and John Carter of Mars, The Mucker is a unique story about the exploits of Burroughs’ only anti-hero – Billy Byrne, a brash and brawling street tough from Chicago’s West Side – grounded in the harsh realities of life in the slums of the early 1900s. Decades before Indiana Jones uncovered the Lost Ark and Rambo fought his personal guerrilla wars, the ruthless Mucker would find himself on whatever side of the law suited his savage nature, taking on crooked fight promoters, brutal gangsters, sinister kidnappers, ferocious headhunters and a femme fatale or two.

Artist Lee Moder, known for his work on Legion of Superheroes, Wonder Woman and Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., combines a classic sense of design, setting and anatomy with a flair for exciting storytelling. “Lee has already filled sketchbooks with designs and research for The Mucker, getting a feel for the characters and the settings,” said Marz. “It really shows in the finished strips.”

Based on the original novels, the first four strips will be available online for free at EdgarRiceBurroughs.com/comics beginning Saturday, January 18, 2014. All upcoming episodes, and many others, may be enjoyed anytime, anywhere for just a $1.99 a month, with a subscription to the official Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Digital Comic Strips service. Regularly updated and expertly curated, the service currently features numerous, all-new adventure series based on classic Burroughs stories including Tarzan, Pellucidar, The Eternal Savage, The Land that Time Forgot and Carson of Venus.

“Hardcore Burroughs fans consider The Mucker one of his [Burroughs] best works,” added Marz. “Adapting these novels gives me a chance to expose a great story to an audience who might not be familiar with it.

Watch for more announcements next month. Just $1.99 per month. See free samples of all the strips and subscribe at www.edgarriceburroughs.com/comics.
