Part 3 of a series of features on John Coleman's Novel
Treasure of the Black Falcon
Al Hanson's Gridley Wave Review & Fan Letters
JCB's last novel, Treasure of the Black Falcon, was published by Ballantine Books, Inc., March 1967.
It had been written twenty years earlier but was shelved and forgotten after numerous rejections. 
During the Burroughs boom of the '60s, however, brother Hulbert came across the manuscript and 
submitted it to Ballantine Books where it was eagerly accepted.

AUGUST 2004


July 30 - August 5, 2004

Joogina ~ Joog, the Giant
Dejah ~ JoN
 ERBzine 1167
Most Burroughs fans are familiar with the various 
ERB gatherings and conventions in the U.S.: The Dum-Dum, ECOF, etc. 
But more and more fans are becoming aware of a unique Canadian event - 
OKAR'n'R: Rescue & Respite which provides rest and recreation 
for ERB fans who find themselves lost, stranded or under attack 
while travelling in the wild northern regions of Okar - the Forbidden Land. 
Our latest OKAR'n'R event plays host to 
Joog, the Giant and his princess, Joogina 
known by some by their Jasoomian names:
Dick and Ginnie Spargur

ERB Discusses Books & Collecting
This issue features a rare find by Danton Burroughs.
Among the Burroughs Archive he has retrieved correspondence between
Edgar Rice Burroughs and Herbert Hungerford of
"The American News Trade Journal."
These letters lead up to an article by Mr. Burroughs in which he expresses his love of books 
and the collecting of books, as well as his views on book marketing.
He also shares entertaining anecdotes about his early years as a bookstore owner  in Pocatello, Idaho
and as a door-to-door book salesman in Chicago and Oak Park.
