What the fuck, gimme a break, right? Enuf w/ the Burroughs already! Nice picture of Burroughs on the cover holding his pith helmet, in the jungle probably looking for Yage. This morning I'll finish listing the Burroughs bks I've read. In my library there are 3 or 4 I haven't read yet. Haven't I had enuf of the guy? Appparently, wch is why there's still some unread. Funny, when I was a teenager I read something like 17 Edgar Rice Burroughs novels - mostly the Pellucidar ones about the Hollow Earth - a subject that's interested me off & on. 2 Burroughs.

This is another collection of diverse writings, nicely illustrated, nicely laid out. Alas, it's also another one I read after I was jaded w/ Burroughs so the ideas seem stale. Still, a 'bad' Burroughs bk is better than any Michael Crichton novel cd ever hope to be.
