Disney reprints all of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Mars novels in three volumes

Filed under Found on the Web, Reading / Watching / Consuming

Disney's John Carter reprintsTo coincide with their upcoming movie, Disney has collected all of Edgar Rice Burroughs Mars books in three volumes of Barsoomian adventure. The whippersnappers of today will have to do without the wonderful old Roy G. Krenkel and Frank Frazetta illustrations that I remember, but these look like handsome editions anyway.

Volume 1: A Princess of Mars; Gods of Mars; Warlord of Mars

Volume 2: Thuvia, Maid of Mars; The Chessmen of Mars; The Master Mind of Mars; A Fighting Man of Mars

Volume 3: Swords of Mars; Synthetic Men of Mars; Llana of Gathol; John Carter of Mars

Now everybody can count the number of times that John Carter refers to himself as "The greatest swordsman on two planets"! Not suitable for drinking games.

They’re out in paperback and for the Kindle.

Thrilling Tales: Kickstarter update and Clockwork Bookery across the web

Filed under Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual, Works in Progress

 Bonnie Scarlet flies, more or less, over the retro future
I posted my first project update at Kickstarter yesterday; briefly, though I’d hoped for a slightly busier first week the Clockwork Book project is still outperforming my last promotion over there. So, you know, mixed feelings of relative triumph.

The project’s picked up some attention from Dark Roasted Blend, Super Punch, Raypunk.org, Iron Mammoth, and a few other scattered mentions on blogs, Facebook, and Twitter. My ongoing mission is to seek out new avenues for promotion, drive them before me, and listen to the lamentation of their… no, sorry. Wrong idiom there.

Anyway, though, that’s nearly correct: I’ll be looking for more ways to spread the word about the Clockwork Book project so I can build on its early momentum. Most of the action on Kickstarter projects comes in the final week – so I want to make sure that the news has spread as far as possible before we get there. Or then. Whatever.

As always, feel free to Tell Everyone. You can embed the project widget (as I did here) or even the project video through links on the Kickstarter page.

There’s another embeddable video over at Vimeo. I hate what YouTube does to my videos so I won’t point you at that one.

In other news, I mentioned a couple of days back that new Clockwork Book desktop wallpapers and a screensaver are up at the Thrilling Tales downloads page. Go forth and use bandwidth!

In the meantime I’m splitting my days between the last ten illustrations for The Lair of the Clockwork Book and a CD design project. Busy, busy days this month.

These just in: desktop wallpapers and a screen saver from The Lair of the Clockwork Book, on the Downloads page at Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual.

Because after all these many months I’m down to the final stretch on the story’s illustrations, and I finally have enough pictures to pick and choose for the freebies!
