this is one of my favorite series by burroughs and here is my reading list for 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

.

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.
Right. ERB did write Skeleton Men from Jupiter. only two 'chapters' of the story were ever published though. Burroughs never did finish it.

Tarzan fans might want to add Tarzan Alive by Philip Jose Farmer* to thie reading list. It approaches the character of Tarzan as if he was an actual person and the novels were fictionalized accounts of his life. Pretty interesting stuff.

(*Farmer also gave the character of Doc Savage the same treatment.)

Just checked out the trailer for the movie, and it is a shame it never came out in the US, it looks pretty cool. Why hasn't it been picked up for a US release, it looks to me like the kind of thing that would make a great summer movie.

I found the trailer I am looking forward to reading the books or book on solomon kane.
I don't know how to do the links but if someone can do a link to trailer or clips from the books and movies of these three authors that would be fantastic.

as a kid i was fascinated by the artwork on the cover, its what got me interested in ERB and REH in the first place. i have most of the Conan/Frazetta stuff and a lot of the ERB/Frazetta stuff. i only have reading copies of a few books though.
