Hi GoodReads! How've you been? Right, so I know over the years (months) I've complained about a lot of books. "Worst book ever" comes out of my mouth a lot. But I didn't know what I was talking about. I hadn't read Bunduki.

This is a 200-page rambling string of the worst prose ever. It's SO good!

I wrote more here.

Man.... Bunduki....

This book was authorized by the Burroughs heirs and features the "adopted" son of Tarzan. It's not horrible but I didn't find it terribly of interest. The writing is fairly workmanlike.

The Pulps live! Bunduki is African Jungle and Veldt with a twist. Enjoyable for what it is- escape fiction.

John Thomas Edson is an English writer of Westerns.

He was born in 1928.He was obsessed with Westerns from an early age and often "rewrote" cowboy movies that he had seen at the cinema. One thing that always intrigued him was the minutiae—how did the baddie's gun jam? What were the mechanics of cheating at cards? How did Westerners really dress and speak?

His writing was helped to develop by a scho
