One Reply to “Master of Adventure: The Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs”

  1. An unparalleled summary of the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs that has no equivalent for any other genre author Lupoff s commentaries are not only complete and well written, but offer fascinating insights into ERB s mind and career When paired with Irwin Porges excellent ERB bio, the pair creates the most complete overview of ERB s life to date.

  2. Loads of fun to read this 40 year old biography history bibliography of ERB and get tons of other old and nigh forgotten books of many authors to read This is a good read for any fan of the pulps, as you ll get a walk through of the pulps from one writer s output and what contemporaries compare or contrast to Burroughs stuff.

  3. Although I found the book very interesting, I m sure some of it, at least, is outdated these days It was written in 1965 I don t know if the new Bison edition has any updates or not.

  4. Hello Fellow Bibliophiles I ve actually had this book for a couple years before reading it a couple months back Richard A Lupoff really has written a nice bibliographic history called Edgar Rice Burroughs Master of Adventure He covers the life and times of the great master of adventure fantasy with a look at his early days and how he created some of his memorable characters such as John Carter, Tarzan, and Carson Napier to name a few He also gives insight as to Burroughs dealings and meetings of [...]

  5. With the exception of a few chapters the book was fairly dry clinical, but met my need for an overview of Burrough s canon and attempt to gain some insight into why his work at the time written was so popular and for a season enjoyed quite a revival Luphoff s suggestion in 1965 that Tarzan might prove to be history s most enduring fictional character may have been influenced by his personal appreciation for Burroughs Of the three great supermen of modern fiction named are Sherlock Holmes, Superm [...]

  6. While this book could use a new edition and rewrite of some sections, it is an informative and lively survey of an author that interests me, but whose prose to too turgid and formulaic for me to read Lupoff satisfies my curiosity about Burroughs, and that is most of what I want a book like this to do.

  7. Finally finished Only 5 months Oy, well written and researched, if roughly 60 years old I definitely appreciated the overview of his works and influences, both what influenced his writing as well as whom his writings have influenced Unfortunately, I couldn t seem to read than 4 pages at a time without falling asleep So there s that.

  8. Very informative I read the first Ace Books paperback edition years ago The Bison edition has updates revisions by the author 40 years after its first publication Should have called it The 40 Anniversary Edition

  9. This is a really good overview of ERB s life and writings Mainly the latter Talks a lot about the various series and how when many of the books came to be written Recommended highly to anyone who is an ERB lover.

  10. Richard A Lupoff does a good job with this If you re looking for some background information on the different series of books produced mainly during the lifetime of ERB then this is a fine place to start I had started reading Princess Of Mars and found this book sitting on my shelf Princess was put on hold while I read this with interest in the man himself but also in conjunction with other authors books released around the same time.While this is not a biography as such it does have historical [...]

  11. A good review of the works of ERB Not a biography really Lupoff covers ERB s inspiration and influences for certain series and discussion about his works.
