Kline, Otis Adelbert: The Outlaws of Mars. v1. 24 May 07

I loved these, along with Burroughs, when I was growing up. These are great fun, innocent and fun like Burroughs. Of course, in my opinion, Burroughs is the master but Kline is still pretty good.

Here's what the Wik says:

"Otis Adelbert Kline (1891-1946) was an adventure novelist and literary agent during the pulp era. Much of his work first appeared in the magazine Weird Tales. Kline was an amateur orientalist and a student of Arabic, like his friend and sometime collaborator, E. Hoffmann Price.

"Kline is best known for his purported novelistic feud with Edgar Rice Burroughs. In 1929, long before planetary romance became a conventional genre, he wrote Planet of Peril, a novel set on the planet Venus and written in the storytelling form of Burroughs's Martian novels. He followed this with two sequels. In response to Kline's "poaching" on his territory, Burroughs began writing his own Venus series. Kline's rejoinder was an even more direct intrusion, boldly setting two novels on Mars. He also wrote of white jungle adventurerers quite reminiscent of Burroughs's Tarzan.[1] However, the evidence of the feud itself is indirect, and the feud was not proposed to have existed until after both writers were dead. No comment from either writer acknowledging the feud is documented. Whether or not the feud actually existed or is merely a literary theory concocted after the fact is unknown."

I'll be posting ALL the Otis Adelbert Kline that is available. I'm taking the day off from work and I feel like going out for a nice, big breakfast eggs, grits, bacon, biscuits. I'm also bringing along 232 novels (and some short stories). I'll be the guy with my head buried in a Reader.

Hope you enjoy these.

Don't let my formatting keep you from doing yours....

....because yours may be more agreeable to different people here - especially with your wonderful art you add to your uploads. There's room for all different types of "interpretations."

Don

P.S.: Thank you for the kind words.

Perhaps a collaboration is in order? Dr. Drib's formatting with tsgreer's cover art? For books you are both interested in, of course! Or is that just me being selfish and wanting the "best of both worlds" so to speak?

Keep up the fantastic work, both of you!

Cheers,

I'm certainly agreeable to it, but more so on the new stuff that I'm interested in. What do you think?

Hey I'm agreeable to it. Any fun pulpy stuff you need a cover on, just let me know. It combines both of my interests: Reading and Art.

Of course some of the old covers you find and incorporate into your work is better than my art, but for those covers where you can't really find anything public domain, just drop me a line. I find it to be a lot of fun reinterpreting covers for these classics.
