    1. Me too!! In fact, I just went on Amazon and found out that the collection is available via Kindle at a very low price! Love this new technology!!!

    1. Isn’t it strange that we always seem to remember the authors, not the illustrators. I recall reading the Tarzan and John Carter novels, but what stuck in my memories was the book covers! Until I looked up this name a couple of days ago, I had no idea who J. Allen St. John was! I learn something new everyday!

      1. It is through blogging that I am developing a great appreciation of the illustrators.

      2. I agree wholeheartedly! A great deal of thought goes into determining which photo/painting/doodle reflects and augments the post.

      1. To use an Edgar Rice Burrows term, I guess we would be Barsoom buddies 🙂
