Tarzan and Golden Lion (Tarzan Book 9)

Written by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Cover art and frontispiece by Joe Jusko
Foreword by Christopher Paul Carey
and afterword by Henry G. Franke III

Betrayed by a band of international conspirators, Tarzan is drugged and left to die in the jungle. But then a quirk of fate delivers him into the hands of the frightful priests of Opar, the last bastion of lost Atlantis. La, High Priestess of the Flaming God, spares his life once again, driven by her hopeless love for the ape-man, only to find her act rewarded by the betrayal of her own people. To save her, Tarzan flees with La into the legendary Valley of Diamonds, while Jad-bal-ja, his faithful golden lion, follows. Ahead lies a land where sentient gorillas rule over servile humans. And behind, Esteban Miranda—who looks exactly like Tarzan—plots further treachery.

Tarzan and the Ant Men (Tarzan Book 10)

Written by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Cover art and frontispiece by Joe Jusko
Foreword by Richard A. Lupoff
and afterword by Henry G. Franke III

No man had ever penetrated the Great Thorn Forest until Tarzan of the Apes crashed his plane behind it on his solo flight. Within he finds a beautiful country. But in it lives the Alali, strange Stone Age giants whose women regard all men as less than slaves. And beyond the Alali lies the country of the Ant Men—little people only eighteen inches tall. There, in Trohanadalmakus, Tarzan is an honored guest, until he is captured by the warriors of Veltopismakus in one of the Ant Men’s wars. But unknown to the ape-man, they have plans for him—by the advanced science of the little people, Tarzan is shrunk to their size and set to work as a quarry slave.

Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle (Tarzan Book 11)

Written by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Cover art and frontispiece by Joe Jusko
Foreword by Sarah A. Hoyt
and afterword by Henry G. Franke III

Cruel slave traders have invaded the jungle domain of Tarzan of the Apes. Now they head toward a fabled empire of riches that no outsider has ever seen, intent on looting its great treasures. And toward the same legendary land stumbles the lost James Blake, an American whom Tarzan has vowed to rescue. Following their spoors, the ape-man comes upon the lost Valley of the Sepulcher, where Knights Templar still fight to resume their holy crusade to free Jerusalem. Soon Tarzan, the true lord of their ancient motherland, finds himself armed with lance and shield, partaking of jousting and ancient combat. And then it is that the slavers strike! 

Tarzan and the Lost Empire (Tarzan Book 12)

Written by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Cover art and frontispiece by Joe Jusko
Foreword by Donald F. Glut
and afterword by Henry G. Franke III

Somewhere in the heart of Africa, a young archaeologist disappeared in the remote jungle mountains—Erich von Harben, son of an old missionary friend of Tarzan of the Apes. Now the ape-man seeks to rescue the lost scholar. The trail leads to a mysterious valley where Tarzan discovers two surviving outposts of ancient Rome, virtually unchanged by time. And there, Tarzan is thrust into the bloody gladiatorial arena, doomed to face every peril the cruel and corrupt emperor of Castra Sanguinarius can devise to ensure the ape-man’s death. Miles away in Castrum Mare, Erich von Harben also awaits execution upon the sands of another tyrant’s arena, destined to die before he can pledge his heart to the fair Favonia, daughter of one of the emperor’s favored patricians.

Edgar Rice Burroughs: Master of Adventure

The creator of the immortal characters Tarzan of the Apes and John Carter of Mars, Edgar Rice Burroughs is one of the world’s most popular authors. His timeless tales of heroes and heroines transport readers from the jungles of Africa and the dead sea bottoms of Barsoom to the miles-high forests of Amtor and the savage inner world of Pellucidar, and even to alien civilizations beyond the farthest star. Mr. Burroughs’ books are estimated to have sold hundreds of millions of copies, and they have spawned 60 films and 250 television episodes.

Joe Jusko: Visionary Artist

Jusko is a recipient of myriad industry honors, including a Certificate of Merit from the Society of Illustrators and a 2001 Chesley Award nomination. Fittingly, he was born on September 1, sharing his birthday with Edgar Rice Burroughs. Jusko’s longtime love of Burroughs’ work continues to inspire him in illustrating the Authorized Library and bringing the author’s creative vision to life.
