Product Description

About the Author

A retired professional soldier, who became a high-school teacher (English, Film, Philosophy, Economics and History), Charles A. Madison is an omnivorous reader of all types of fiction and non-fiction. However, as a scholar and researcher he is interested in the collecting of, and the scholarship associated with, the books written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the acknowledged king of the pulps and the writer who kick-started modern science fiction. This anthology is his first book dedicated to that author. He began reading and studying the scholarship associated with Burroughs as a teenager and remains to this day an unrepentant enthusiast for these great novels of adventure and romance. He and his wife Pam live in Killeen, Texas, enjoying the temperate climate and friendly, hospitable people of this great state.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Look At The Impact Of A Single Author Upon A Genre 25 May 2015
By John C. Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I like it. An interesting look at some of the tropes we all know and love; the planetary romance, the lost world(s), and so forth.

What pushed it to "4 star" was John C. Wright's review of John Carter (the movie). YES! At last. Someone who understands. It's NOT a bad movie, nor is it a bad story, per se, but it's NOT A Princess of Mars.

Another article I found interesting and somewhat humorous was the examination of ERB's use of the 'framing' technique, wherein he was not the protagonist, but was taking down the story FROM the protagonist, or from an eyewitness. Apparently 'Framing' ERB was quite the long-lived chap (but what can one expect when one is descended from Captain John Carter, late of the Army of Virginia).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderfully Crafted Collection of Articles 26 May 2015
By JIM GERLACH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
As a life-long Burroughs fan, I was intrigued by the title, EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS: The Master of Pulp Storytelling. I knew that almost all of Burroughs' stories originally appeared in pulp magazines, but I'd never thought of him as primarily a pulp writer. But the editor and essays in this book delightfully expound on Burroughs gift to tell stories that create worlds of fantastic adventure - the heart of pulp storytelling. Charlie Madison does a wonderful job in selecting and weaving together this wonderful collection of essays using what he calls "asides." These wonderful anecdotes and musings serve as transitions between articles. I found them to be entertaining and full of wit and wisdom. I especially enjoyed Madison’s previously unpublished article on the post-war drama between ERB book publishers. The articles by David Critchfield are fascinating and the choice of John Flint Roy’s chapter from A Guide to Barsoom was a great way to end the book. This is a wonderful book full of warmth and devotion for Mr. Burroughs, but with enough surprises to keep the reader fully engaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Roundup or Good starter kit 28 Jun. 2015
By Michael Morrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A good collection of ERB lore and facts. It's fun reading even if I don't agree with all the articles. Great for someone who hasn't studied ERB and it even has surprises for someone like me who has read a lot. Normally, you would have to read a lot of books and magazines to have had this information at your fingertips. From here, you should have a good idea of what you want to study next.

Charlie did a great job of gathering and presenting articles concerning Edgar Rice Burroughs' literary efforts. Several of the articles I had never seen before, and several I got to enjoy again. Really good to have all this info in one place
