- Full Description
The first new Tarzan novel in years, written by the well-respected Will Murray (The Wild Adventures of Doc Savage series), this is an authorized sequel to one of ERB's best novels, Tarzan the Terrible. It is late 1941. After flight training with the RAF, John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, is given a mission to locate a British military intelligence operative, whose plane went down in the vast African wilderness. Tarzan's mission returns him to his roots, dealing with dangers both known and unknown in the prehistoric land filled with carnivorous saber-tooth tigers and triceratops--and man-killing spider people.
"Having been an Edgar Rice Burroughs fan since 1968," says Murray, "the opportunity to bring this iconic character back to life means a great deal to me. I've pulled out all the stops to faithfully replicate the storytelling style of the great Edgar Rice Burroughs and recreate the original era of Tarzan of the Apes."
Featuring a new cover painting by artist Joe DeVito, a veteran of Marvel comics who currently creates the covers for Wild Adventures of Doc Savage series.
Says DeVito, "After sculpting the Centennial Tarzan statue for ERB, Inc. in 2012, I was hoping to get a crack at a Tarzan painting as well. This book provided an opportunity to combine them both!"
Bud here: I've read this and loved it. I devoured the Tarzan novels as a 11 or 12-year-old, have re-read many over the years, and I maintain this is AS GOOD a story as anything ERB wrote. It takes me right back into those wonderful days of uninhibited African adventures with the mighty Lord of the Jungle. Good stuff!
Wild Adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs Series #1.
