Pulp Crazy – The God of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs



In this week’s episode I discuss “The God of Tarzan” by Edgar Rice Burroughs. This is a short story typically read in the Jungle Tales of Tarzan collection by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The story deals with a 19 year old Tarzan’s quest to find God after reading the term in the dictionary.

Pulp Crazy – Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan


This is a special episode of Pulp Crazy for two reasons. The first is that it’s going up on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ birthday, September 1st. The second, is that I’m joined by two special guests Christopher Paul Carey and Chuck Loridans. We’re going to be discussing Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan. These two are huge Burroughs and Tarzan fans and they cover a lot of ground from the books to other media that they feel captures or in part captures the spirit of the original Burroughs character.

There is also some talk about H. Rider Haggard’s influence on Burroughs, and a bit about how the style and framing sequence of the original Burroughs novels influenced Philip Jose Farmer when he came up with the concept for his biography of Tarzan, Tarzan: Alive. I enjoyed listening to these two go back and forth about Tarzan and ERB this past weekend. We recorded this episode without realizing it was Burroughs’ birthday coming out. So it’s a happy coincidence.
