Short biography
Edgar Rice Burroughs (September 1, 1875 – March 19, 1950) was an American speculative fiction writer, best known for his prolific output in the adventure, science fiction and fantasy genres. Among his most well-known creations include Tarzan of the Apes, John Carter of Mars (Barsoom series), and Carson Napier of Venus (Amtor series).

He is also known for the hollow Earth-themed Pellucidar series, beginning with At the Earth's Core (1914); and the lost world-themed Caspak trilogy, beginning with The Land that Time Forgot (1918).

Burroughs' California ranch is now the center of the Tarzana neighborhood in Los Angeles
