About the Author

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) had various jobs before getting his first fiction published at the age of 37. He established himself with wildly imaginative, swashbuckling romances about Tarzan of the Apes, John Carter of Mars and other heroes, all at large in exotic environments of perpetual adventure. Tarzan was particularly successful, appearing in silent film as early as 1918 and making the author famous. Burroughs wrote science fiction, westerns and historical adventure, all charged with his propulsive prose and often startling inventiveness. Although he claimed he sought only to provide entertainment, his work has been credited as inspirational by many authors and scientists.

Joe Jusko is among today's most acclaimed fantasy, pin-up, and comic artists. His work has been featured on book and comic posters, and on the much-praised 1992 Marvel Masterpieces trading cards. Jusko is a recipient of myriad industry honors, including a Certificate of Merit from the Society of Illustrators and a 2001 Chesley Award nomination. Fittingly, he was born on September 1, sharing his birthday with Edgar Rice Burroughs. Jusko's longtime love of Burroughs' work continues to inspire him in illustrating the Authorized Library and bringing the author's creative vision to life.
Will Murray was first exposed to Tarzan of the Apes when his father took him to see Tarzan's Greatest Adventure in 1959. He was too young to read and, therefore, too young to comprehend what he was watching. But something must have stuck. He devoured a ton of Tarzan movies and comic books over the ensuing years. A decade later in 1968, Murray read A Princess of Mars, and became a lifelong fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs. While collecting the Mars books, he jumped into the Venus, Pellucidar and Tarzan series. He was hooked. In 2015, Murray inaugurated the Wild Adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs novels with Tarzan: Return to Pal-ul-don. This led to King Kong vs. Tarzan and his most recent epic, Tarzan, Conqueror of Mars, which finds the ape-man marooned on the Red Planet and at odds with the legendary Warlord of Barsoom, John Carter.
