“Burroughs created one of the few heroes everyone knows, and at that desk, he took Tarzan to exotic lands, had him face bizarre creatures and endless, exotic challenges. Those adventures spirit the reader away to a timeless time of action and heroism. And sitting in that office, I was a permanent convert. For me, and for countless others, the legend will never cease. And that’s as it should be.”

— Steve Saffel, senior acquisitions editor, Titan Books 


  • “The Tarzan legend returns us to that Eden where, free of clothes and the inhibitions of an opressive society, a man is able, as William Faulkner put it…to prevail as well as endure.”

    — Gore Vidal
  • “Burroughs’ tale of the Noble Savage remains the stuff of daydreams.”

    — Los Angeles Times
  • “Burroughs is a masterful storyteller, and his story is wonderfully suited to an audio presentation…Slattery has a good understanding of the pacing of this exciting tale and his performance is enjoyable.”

    — Kliatt
