I’ve really got some catching up to do, not only here but everywhere. There’s less John Carter of Mars news than there was, other than the new comics. Hopefully that will change again with a reboot or something. Between Christmas, my having my gallbladder removed ( I do not miss it ) more ‘out of the house’ work hours that usual and being creatively busier than usual, I’m floundering I admit. It’s time for some list making or I’m done for. (more…)
In response to the recent return of John Carter rights to ERB inc it seemed appropriate to return to the that giddy first viewing – Jeff

Or – where the hell is Jeff ? Well, Jeff went to California to see John Carter and pogo around ECOF (Edgar Rice Burroughs fan con ) with his Barsoomian posse. A good time was had. After the ECOF my family and I stayed in LA and played for the rest of the week. So that’s where Jeff has been. Above you can see the wondrous swag hoisted upon us by the ECOF team as well some cool items from Disney that were handed out after the movie.
I arrived mid-day on the friday and seemed to be popular because I had pre-sold copies of my Strange Worlds books that people wanted me deliver to them. (more…)
More of it showing up in all the geek outlets counts. I do like the news getting attention.
From somebody who had just watched the movie and posted it yesterday of all days – Jeff
“When I first saw the trailer for the movie JOHN CARTER in 2011, and realized it was an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ A Princess of Mars, I was seriously jazzed–”
Okay,I learned it on Facebook and it’s been copied all over, which is a good thing. I’ve pasted the complete announcement below. I don’t know why it’s not on ERBinc’s site. Anyways, we all knew that someday John Carter would escape The Pits of Warhoon/Disney. Post Paramount having the property and Disney snapping it up I was honestly surprised that the movie was actually made. (more…)
You can see that I have a new banner cannibalized from my own Thuvia of Mars painting. It’s an indication of my feeling that it’s time to shake things up bit. Barsoomia.org came about during the looooong road to the John Carter of Mars movie. Now that it’s happened, and so many of us are saying ‘please sir, may we have some more ?’ I feel the need to broaden my window. We still live. Dynamite has their new and approved ‘John Carter Warlord of Mars, Calots and Comics and’ – I’m losing track, it’s a really long title but I am looking forward to it. There are the comic strips through edgarriceburroughs.com and perhaps, if Disney releases the reins on the movie rights, more John Carter on screen. I’d really like that. But Barsoom isn’t the only world, and ERB isn’t the only one to write Sword and Planet stories. (more…)
