    In fact do you know that the city of Trazanna Calif was named after Tarzan of The apes. So again I disagree very, very strongly.
    Really? The first six Barsoom books all had basically the same plot. (I gave up after that.) He ground them out for the 'penny-dreadful' trade.

      Well all I have to say is you have very poor taste in authors sir . Very poor taste indeed. Edgar Rice Burroughs is the best in fantasy authors that there ever was .

            The Forever War by Joe Haldeman (sci-fi classic)

            Gettysburg by Stephen Sears (and this time give it a big budget and actors with believable beards)

            If I Never Get Back by Darryl Brock (a better baseball story than Field Of Dreams)

            Almost anything by David Morrell
            Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

                I liked the Barsoom series as well. Thought the movie brought out a lot of the book, still it was not a great movie.

                    Apparently Ridley Scott bought the rights and a film is in the works.

                              I would like to see the Wingman series by Mack Maloney adapted into a movie as well as the Carrier and Seal Team Seven series by Keith Douglass.I also would like to see Amanda Garret make the leap to the big screen with one of James H Cobbs books being adapted.Also I'd wish that some of Stephen Coontz's other novel such as Intruders should've been adapted for the big screen as was as Robert Gandts books would also be very cool on the big screen.

                                Isn't Ridley Scott trying to put that one on screen?
