Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) was an American writer of science fiction, fantasy, westerns, and modern fiction, who is best known for his creations of the jungle hero Tarzan, the Mars adventurer John Carter, and the Venus adventurer Carson Napier. Against the advice of many experts, Burroughs was an early pioneer in syndication and syndicated comic strips, movies, TV shows, and merchandise around his newly created Tarzan character. With the Tarzan proceeds, he was able to buy his ranch, "Tarzana", now in the Los Angeles community of Tarzana, and develop other characters including the John Carter and Carson Napier characters of the Mars and Venus series.
In Pirates of Venus, the first of the five-part Venus or Amtor series, Carson Napier in attempting a solo mission to Mars, crash lands on Venus, known by the inhabitants as Amtor, and meets his first princess. During the course of the series, he meets various peoples, becomes a pirate, escapes the Room of the Seven Doors, is made a prince, and rescues princesses along the way.
Here at Faded Page we have the entire Amtor Series in individual volumes and as a specially compiled compendium, Chronicles of Amtor, along with nine other Burroughs Tarzan and western titles. Come join us and proof a few pages to help us bring more public domain titles to Canada. More information about volunteering is available on our companion site Distributed Proofreaders Canada.
