OMG, reminds me that I read a ton of Tarzan books as a high school freshman - loaded to me by my spinster looking homeroom teacher. All those Tarzan movies were never the same after that.
strangely i own 3 tarzan books, read, passed, then got everything else ace put out by him. wasnt really into it as much as the JC of Mars, Venus and Pellucidar stuff. the Frazetta covers pushed them onto my lawnmowing income.still missing: Brunner, Dick, Sheckley, Asimov, Vance, Sturgeon, hardbounds, anthologies out the yang, and Silverberg boxes. then the 'to read or file now, right now!' pile that doesnt budge. next month.... maybe.
My brother used to have the Carter and Carson books scattered amidst his collection of J. T. Edson. I fell in love with the covers straight away and the contents directly afterwards. Trying to remember the first SF book I ever read is a toss up between 'The Winds of Gath' by E. C. Tubb and something like 'The Warlord of Mars' by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
oh ya, Niven section got boxed also. have everything to Dream Park. somewhere.there were a few JC of Mars books i picked up in England as a kid in '76 and they fell apart in my hands as i read them. not the Moorcock books i got in London tho.
