Présentation de l'éditeur

Original theme anthology.  Eleven new tales set in the legendary worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Contains stories by top writers such as Mercedes Lackey, Sarah Hoyt, and Mike Resnick.

Eleven new tales set in the legendary worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs. 

Most people don’t know it, but the best-selling American writer of the 1920s wasn’t Hemingway or Fitzgerald, but Edgar Rice Burroughs. Everyone knows that he created Tarzan, but he wasn’t limited to that one classic creation.  There was John Carter, Warlord of Mars.  There was Pellucidar, the wondrous world that exists at the center of the Earth, and  Carson of Venus, the Wrong-Way Corrigan of space, who set off for Mars and wound up on Venus for four novels and part of a fifth.

Many top science fiction and fantasy writers of today grew up reading Burroughs, and this anthology is their way of “paying back” and thanking him for stirring their imaginations. Join their celebration with these all new tales set in the astounding worlds that Edgar Rice Burroughs brought to life: giving their own spin on the unforgettable characters conceived by one of the great masters of science fiction, adventure, and fantasy.

About The Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs:
“More fun than I've had in an anthology in a long time.”—Critical Mass

Winning Collection 8 octobre 2013
Par Randy Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Some top notch writers have written for this anthology. All acknowledge their love and debt to Burroughs's work.

Within these pages are three Tarzan tales(one in which Joe Lansdale puts the ape man in another of Burroughs's worlds, The Land That Time Forgot), two Pellucidar stories, a Carson Napier, Moon Maid, Mucker, a tale from Beyond The Farthest Star, and a western featuring the white man raised by Geronimo. The only reprint is a John Carter story(The Burroughs estate was contractually bound against any new Mars pieces, likely because of the John Carter anthology already out.)It was originally published in 1963 as part of a giveaway and only a thousand copies were printed.

Some of the authors featured include the already mentioned Lansdale, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Peter David, Richard A. Lupoff, Kevin J. Anderson & Sarah A Hoyt, Max Allan Collins & Matthew Clemens, Todd McCaffrey, F. Paul Wilson, Mercedes lackey, Ralph Roberts, and Mike Resnick.

Loved every story here and more than one of them demanded a sequel. Fingers crossed.

Tales of the Past and Elsewhere 1 octobre 2013
Par Arthur W. Jordin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs (2013) is a SF anthology based on the various series and milieus of the writer. It contains ten original stories, one reprint, an introduction and bios of the authors.

- "Introduction" by Mike Resnick & Bob Garcia tells of the several worlds developed by ERB and the continuing interest in his works.

- "Tarzan and the Great War" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch takes Tarzan of errands in Algiers.

- "The Fallen, A Tale of Pellucidar" by Mercedes Lackey introduces Dek to a fallen angel.

- "Scorpion Men of Venus" by Richard A. Lupoff puts Carson Napier into a bind.

- "The Forgotten Sea of Mars" (ERB-dom, 1963) by Mike Resnick sends John Carter looking for a missing comrade.

- "Apache Lawman" by Ralph Roberts solves a money problem at the Billing ranch.

- "Moon Maid Over Manhattan" by Peter David brings Nah-ee-lah down to Earth.

- "Tarzan and the Martian Invaders" by Kevin J. Anderson & Sarah A. Hoyt warns Tarzan of a Martian scout ship.

- "The Two Billys, a Mucker Story" by Max Allan Collins & Matthew Clemens involves Billy the mucker in a rescue.

- "To the Nearest Planet" by Todd McCaffrey discloses a planet with a sterility problem.

- "The Dead World" by F. Paul Wilson follows a balloon ride to a moon.

- "Tarzan and the Land That Time Forgot" by Joe R. Lansdale exposes Tarzan and his friends to a very hostile environment.

- Author Biographers lists the authors in alphabetical order with short biographies.

These tales are written by fans of ERB and provide brief glimpses of the various places and characters developed by him. ERB was born on September 1, 1875, and died on March 19, 1950. His first publication -- A Princess of Mars -- was released in 1911 and he continued to publish works for the next thirty-five years. His estate released even more new tales from his archives after his death.

ERB was one of the most prolific authors of his time. He was a pioneer in science fiction before that term was invented. He also wrote historical and contemporary tales. This is a good introduction to his works for those who are not familiar with his legacy.

The infrastructure in these stories is definitely dated, but they are still very readable. Maybe teleportation is unbelievable, but heroic behavior is even more popular today. The romantic aspects are muted compared to contemporary tales, but love is very apparent in ERB's stories.

Highly recommended for Burroughs fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of adventure, strange places, and interesting characters. Read and enjoy!

Squee! Fangirl happiness… 6 décembre 2013
Par Cedarlila - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have been anticipating this book for a very long time, and want to savor it, to make it last… Ever since Mike Resnick, the editor, revealed the cover on facebook, I had been drooling over it. I bought it, tucked it away, and brought it out ever so often to gloat over, but didn’t think I had time yet. Last night waiting for something, I started in on the first story, by the redoubtable Kristine Kathryn Rusch. The Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs hits me seriously in the nostalgia button. I adored the Tarzan books, the men and women of Mars, Pellucidar only slightly less so… When Baen created this anthology of all new tales I was in. Rusch’s story of Tarzan in a war-torn interlude is excellent, harking not only to the jungle-man’s physical skills, but raw intelligence, as well. I had to skip the second story, because it is one of the few authors in the world I simply cannot read, and normally even an anthology with that person in it I won’t buy, but this collection was a must have. I am saving the stories to be pulled out singly rather than my usual read-through. If you are a Burroughs fan, you must have this. And the cover is divine!

Excellence collection of stories about ERB worlds - looking forward to more! 6 novembre 2013

Much better than I expected. Loved revisiting the great stories of ERB. Satisfied the thirst for more stories of his worlds and heroes. Haven't enjoyed reading any stories lately as much as I have enjoyed these. I hope this is just book one of many to come. Worth much, much more than I paid.
