The Fantastic Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs

Readings of some of the greatest imaginative fiction ever written. Edgar Rice Burroughs, best known for his creation of Tarzan of the Apes, was a prolific author of what would come to be known as "science fiction" or "swords and sorcery." Accomplished film and TV actor David Stifel is your narrator and host. Join us for the adventures of a lifetime!

Tarzan the Untamed will be retired from this site on Sept. 13, 2014.  After that time, the first two chapters may be heard here; the remainder will be available as an audiobook purchase at audible.com. Limited availability of these audibooks gives me a chance to earn some money from their sales, allowing me to continue funding this podcast. Thanks for your support!

We last saw Bertha Kircher as she was being brought to the maniac King – only to be grabbed and stolen away by Metak, the crazed son of the king.
