VINE VOICEon 21 July 2013
This is a natty little novella that recalls Lansdale's Zeppelins West work. It purports to be the true story of Tarzan (though Lord Greystoke is never mentioned by name) told from the perspective of his ape brother. It blends fact and fiction, the idea being that this take on the jungle lord went to America to inspire the films that were made, and it is very funny because of the voice Lansdale uses for the ape, very blunt and to the point. It's also slightly rude and scatalogical as you'd expect about a man brought up in a jungle and fudges around the story elements that Burroughs created that simply don't fit the real world. It's bittersweet in how it deals with how a man raised in a way would deal with the real world.

It compares well to similar work by Philip Jose Farmer (who wrote what five stories of Tarzan in the real world?).

This novella will be published next year, but we can read it now thanks to the kindle!
If you have read Mr. Lansdale's work before you will like this, if not it is an excellent example of his quirky, irreverant style. Highly recommened, a great little story. (Try some of the collections that are cheap on the kindle if you liked this)
