TARZAN, LORD OF THE JUNGLE
When slave traders and safari hunters invade Tarzan's jungle kingdom, the mighty ape-man is caught up in a perilous quest for the lost Leopard City of Nimmr, a treasure land of amazing wealth. But Tarzan's cunning enemies vow his destruction, and the fabulous metropolis in the Forbidden Valley holds its own horrors of medieval mortal combat . . .
TARZAN AND THE LOST EMPIRE
While searching for a missing scholar in the treacherous Wiramwazi Mountains, Tarzan is captured by an ancient tribe of the centuries-dead Roman Empire. In this dangerous throwback to Caesar's brutal regime, Tarzan must triumph over cruel emperors, skilled gladiators, and blood-hungry lions--or he will never taste freedom again . . .

The first time I ever went to Tarzana, California, I walked down Ventura Boulevard, noticing that all of the buildings were really ugly. Then I arrive at my destination: a small house, set back from the street, with a beautiful tree shading the entire front yard. Inside, the air was cool and everything was polished wood, especially the incredible, gigantic desk. That's where he worked. It was awesome.
Edgar Rice Burroughs had a huge California ranch, and the land eventually became a town, named for Burroughs's most famous character. Burroughs created one of the few heroes everyone knows, and at that desk, he took Tarzan to exotic lands, had him face bizarre creatures and endless, exotic challenges. Those adventures spirit the reader away to a timeless time of action and heroism. And sitting in that office, I was a permanent convert. For me, and for countless others, the legend will never cease. And that's as it should be.

Edgar Rice Burroughs is one of the world's most popular authors. With no previous experience as a writer, he wrote and sold his first novel--A Princess of Mars--in 1912. In the ensuing thirty-eight years, until his death in 1950, Burroughs produced ninety-one books and a host of short stories and articles. Although he is best known as the creator of the classic Tarzan of the Apes and John Carter of Mars, his restless imagination knew few bounds. Burroughs's prolific pen took readers from the American West to primitive Africa to romantic adventures on the moon, other planets, and beyond the farthest star.
No one knows how many copies of Burroughs's books have been published throughout the world. It is conservative to say, however, that with translations into thirty-two known languages, including Braille, the number must run into the hundreds of millions. Considering the additional worldwide following of the Tarzan newspaper feature, radio programs, comic magazines, motion pictures, and television series, Burroughs and his works are certainly known and loved by a legion of fans.
