Edgar Rice Burroughs
The Creator of "Tarzan"
Edgar Rice Burroughs, creator of the immortal TARZAN OF THE APES, now lives in Tarzana, California, the town which got its name from the character he created. "Tarzana" was the name given by Edgar Rice Burroughs to his vast ranch in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California, and, subsequently, when the post office was established in the community surrounding the Burroughs ranch, the Federal Government aptly named it Tarzana. 

Better recognition of his contribution to the entertainment of countless millions of people no man could have!

Fifty-one Burroughs novels have been written by Mr. Burroughs to date!  Now in this March issue of THRILLING ADVENTURES, begins the fifty-second -- a richly colored, warmly human, blood-quickening action novel of the Far West!

THRILLING ADVENTURES is proud and happy to publish a novel by America's best-known writer, whose work now appears in fifty-seven languages and dialects throughout the world, and whose great character-creation, Tarzan, has been seen by movie-goers of all nations.
