Edgar Rice Burroughs
Edgar Rice Burroughs was a creative genius. Besides the famous character of Tarzan, Burroughs published science fiction and crime novels. Burroughs was born and raised in Chicago. He loved art and poetry and always would dream of horses, which came true when he joined the army calvary. He was kicked out the army. He later married Emma Centennia Hulbert, first of two wives (divorced in 1934). He started writing not because he loved it but needed money. Burroughs wrote in 1911, Under the Moon of Mars, actually a story in a magazine and he developed it into a novel series. The story is about John Cater, who is transported to Mars following a battle with Apaches.
The martian series totaled 11 books. His true successful and memorable novel is Tarzan. Burroughs wrote a series of 25 Tarzan books. He created suspense between each novel. He would use cliff hangers to make the reader feel the need to read another of his books. He was a true genius when it came to writing his books. Tarzan brought success to Burroughs especially after the movies began in 1918.
Edgar Rice Burroughs died of a heart ailment on March 19, 1950.
