a Princess of mars

the warlord of mars
Thuvia maid of mars
The chessmen of mars
The master mind of mars
a fighting man of mars
sword of mars
synthetic men of mars
LIana of gathol
John carter of mars

and here are two that were written by his son

john carter and the giant of mars
skeleton men of Jupiter

now last two I have never read and are the hardest to find and I am hoping soon
that all the books will be in e form.
The two stories you mention being unable to find are in fact what comprise the final book "John Carter of Mars."

Dan O'Bannon's The Resurrected is quite a nice take on The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward.

It goes without saying that I can hardly wait for Del Toro's adaptation of At The Mountains Of Madness....

I'm not an ERB expert, but I think he actually wrote "Skeleton Men." It was only "Giant" that was written in part by his son. It's been years since I've read them, but, as I recall, "Skeleton Men" read just the other books.

I wouldn't bother watching it on TV, it's very R with some nudity, gore, swearing, so it'd be heavily edited.

Universal refused to greenlight it as an R-rated movie, and Del Toro refused to make it PG-13, so he and James Cameron are currently working to get Fox to pick it up.

I wonder, has anyone ever asked Del Toro why At The Mountains Of Madness has to be R-rated? It has very little gore, no nudity and no f-words that I can remember ...

Probably for tone- there'll be autopsy scenes on people, penguins and aliens... Plus there's whole issue of what shoggoths actually would do, visually (i.e. bite people's - and penguins' - heads off) and what the mutant penguins would do...

Re: Robert e Howard,Edgar rice Burroughs & H.P.lovecraft comics & book

Most of the Tarzan films were only loosely based on the character. The ones that were adapted from the novels were mostly the silent ones made in the teens and twenties. The ones I recall right off were (film title first, then the name of the novel on which the film was based):

Tarzan of the Apes -- from the first half of the original novel "Tarzan of the Apes."
The Romance of Tarzan -- based on the second half of the novel "Tarzan of the Apes"
The Revenger of Tarzan -- from the novel "The Return of Tarzan"
The Son of Tarzan -- from the novel of the same name
Adventures of Tarzan -- from the novels "The Return of Tarzan" and parts of "Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar"
Tarzan and the Golden Lion -- from the novel of the same name
Tarzan the Tiger -- from "Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar"

In the sound era:

Greystoke -- from the novel "Tarzan of the Apes"
And Disney's "Tarzan" from the novel "Tarzan of the Apes"

I assume you mean a remake of the movie, not the novel. What would you have done differently from the McClure-Cushing movie (and who can you envision playing Dian The Beautiful other than Caroline Munro)?

How about a remake of "The Land that Time Forget"? I thought Moorcock did a decent screenplay(probably the closest adaptation of an ERB book), but was surprised that he killed off the protagonist of the 3rd Caspak novel.

One of my favorite Tarzan novels. I liked how ERB made fun of the Tarzan movies by having an American GI ask if John Clayton was Johnny Weissmuller.
