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.

I picked up the “Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs” anthology for two reasons. One, I like ERB, and two, one of the stories is written by one of my favorite authors, Kevin J Anderson. This book was an enjoyable read and the authors did a great job with their stories in ERBs different worlds. I loved most of the stories. There were a couple of exceptions that were a little disappointing. “The Scorpion Men of Venus” by Richard A Lupoff where the Characters were at least in my opinion portrayed as very shallow, and “To the Nearest Planet” by Todd McCaffrey which started out awesome but the ending left me scratching my head. Anyway I thought it was a great collection and any ERB fan will love it. My favorite stories were which is hard because they were mostly all great was “The Forgotten Sea of Mars” by Mike Resnick, “Tarzan and the Martian Invaders” by Kevin J Anderson, and “The Dead World” by F. Paul Wilson. However other than the two I mentioned above I really enjoyed all of them.
