Wizard Of Venus by Edgar Rice Burroughs, December 1, , Ace edition, in English.

Even he himself comments upon his curious faculty for getting into trouble, in his own introductory note to The Wizard of Venus. But whether Carson is a great adventurer or a mere incompetent, he does manage to bungle and barge his way into some of the most entertaining scrapes in all imaginative literature. The one he faces in The Wizard of Venus is superb!

Major Burroughs and his wife Mary had five other boys besides Edgar, but two of the children died in infancy, leaving Edgar the youngest of the family.

In , Burroughs decided to write a full-blown novel, and the tale he wrote was as far removed from the life of a pencil sharpener wholesaler as one could possibly imagine. This flight of fancy, entitled "Dejah Thoris, Martian Princess," was so exotic that Burroughs was worried that editors might think he was a little touched in the head.

So he submitted the story under a pseudonym, Normal Bean, a joke indicating that his head was indeed screwed on the right way.


In submitting his manuscript to All-Story magazine he found luck the first time out: editor Thomas Metcalf liked the tale and offered Burroughs dollars, an extravagant sum.

Burroughs wound up being renamed as well: his pseudonym was changed to Norman Bean.

When this story appeared in book form it received its final title, A Princess of Mars ; both Normal and Norman were abandoned in favor of the author's real name. By the time of the last installment of "Under the Moons of Mars" Burroughs had completed his third novel. The story is decidedly silly and the final adventure of Carson Napier is perhaps incomplete.

The companion tale, Pirate Blood, has all the elements expected in an ERB story but is a distinct departure for the author. A dark tale apparently drafted at a time when the science of genetics was in its infancy and the theories of eugenics dominated the field.

Following the standard ERB formula, our hero John Lafitte, distant relative of Jean Lafitte, the famous French pirate is snatched from his normal world a motorcycle cop in Southern California and forced to accompany a friend turned embezzler during an escape via airship over the Pacific Ocean a mode of transportation frequently in the news in the late 's and early 's -i. Moving from one near-deadly adventure after another, John reaches back to his ancestor's pirate blood to find the means for survival.

He finds it easy to discard civilized behavior which he believes is merely a veneer masking his true nature. It is easy to cheer him on, thinking he will demonstrate a better nature but he rarely does so.

Overall, this slim volume demonstrates ERB's skill and why he remains popular. The final installment of the series, published posthumously. Limit the size to characters.

Edgar Rice Burroughs September 1, — March 19, was an American writer best known for his creations of the jungle hero Tarzan and the heroic Mars adventurer John Carter, although he produced works in many genres.

It was first published as a book by A. McClurg of Chicago in , entitled A Princess of Mars, after three Barsoom sequels had appeared as serials, and McClurg had published the first four serial Tarzan novels as books. Burroughs soon took up writing full-time and by the time the run of Under the Moons of Mars had finished he had completed two novels, including Tarzan of the Apes, published from October and one of his most successful series.

He planned to exploit Tarzan through several different media including a syndicated Tarzan comic strip, movies and merchandise.I wish that he might have remained, but he could not. Man's First Enemy. At sight of us the people seemed to go mad with joy, attesting our popularity and the beauty of Duare.

Warriors were banked behind him, and others were posted below the dais. Both fun especially the dirigible bit in the pirate story , but you can tell they weren't quite finished yet -- good for Burroughs fans, probably not that great for a casual reader.

I came to the conclusion that the fellow had some hypnotic powers, but I doubted that his victims really thought that they were zaldars. This time I am going to give myself the benefit of the doubt and call it Fate.
