Modiphius resurrects Edgar Rice Burroughs books with original stories


Holy fucking shit, my friends.

Just received the following email from Modiphius:

San Diego Comic Con has been running over the weekend and there's been exciting announcements for fans of John Carter from the Edgar Rice Burroughs panel.
A series of new novels based on characters from the world of Burrough’s have been announced for release, these new tales will expand on the original stories and form part of the new official canon.
Book one, Carson of Venus: The Edge of All Worlds, will be written by Matt Betts.
Book two, Tarzan: Battle for Pellucidar, will be written by Win Scott Eckert. It’s slated to be a mad cap pulp tale with Ape Men fighting WWII Nazis riding dinosaurs.
Book three, John Carter of Mars: Gods of the Forgotten, will be written by Geary Gravel.
Book four, Victory Harben: Fires of Halos will be written by Christopher Paul Carey and introduces a new character to the world Victory Harben.
The books will be published in 2020 and will form part of a ‘super-arc’ of connected stories.
Burrough’s The Land that Time Forgot is potentially going to be adapted into a television show, a script has been written and with any luck will go into production.
Dear lord, that's tasty. Most people are excited for the slew of 5000 Marvel shows and films next year, but this right here is hitting my sweet spot.
