In 1888 Lord and Lady Clayton sail from England to fill a military post in British West Africa and perish at the edge of a primeval forest. When their infant son is adopted by fanged “great anthropoid apes,” he becomes one of the most legendary figures in all of literature—Tarzan of the Apes. Within the society of speechless primates, Tarzan wields his natural influence and becomes king. Self-educated by virtue of his parents’ library, Tarzan discovers true civilization when he rescues aristocratic Jane Porter from the perils of his jungle. Their famous romance, which pits Tarzan’s lifetime of savagery against Jane’s genteel nature, has captivated audiences for nearly a century.
First published in 1914, *Tarzan of the Apes* is the first of several works by **Edgar Rice Burroughs** that delineate Tarzan’s manifold and amazing feats. Despite his reputation as a pulp writer, Burroughs spins an exhilarating yarn detailing the laws of the jungle and the intricate dilemmas of the British gentry as he examines the struggle between heredity and environment.
**Maura Spiegel** teaches literature and film at Columbia University and Barnard College. She is the co-author of *The Grim Reader* and of *The Breast Book: An Intimate and Curious History*. She co-edits the journal *Literature and Medicine*.

***50 MILLION TERRY BROOKS COPIES SOLD AROUND THE WORLD*** ‘Terry’s place is at the head of the fantasy world’ Philip Pullman Horris Kew, conjuror and confidence-trickster, has returned to the Magic Kingdom of Landover, and a chorus of disapproval immediately assaults Ben Holiday’s ears. Both Questor Thews, the Court Wizard, and Abernathy, the Court Scribe (currently, magically transformed into a dog) urge Ben to lock him up or exile him. Fair as ever, Ben decides to consider the problem rather than act immediately. Alas, this leads to disaster, for Horris’s return is not what it seems, and Ben soon finds himself in deadly peril. Only his lady, Willow, holds the means to save him. But Willow has disappeared on a mysterious mission of her own . . .

Brett, author of The Painted Man ‘If you haven’t read Terry Brooks, you haven’t read fantasy’ Christopher Paolini, author of Eragon
