Young Tarzan and the Mysterious She

by Edgar Rice Burroughs & Michael Tierney

Young Tarzan

The paperback version of Cirsova Vol. 2 #1 containing Young Tarzan is now available for Pre-Order for $9.95 on Amazon.com!
The $30 hardcover will not be advance solicited, and will only be offered once they are in print.

However, Collector's Edition in North Little Rock and The Comic Book Store in Little Rock, Arkansas, will both have the hardcovers before they are available on Amazon!
In fact, both stores will also have the trade paperbacks before Amazon, and one of the two authors of Young Tarzan will be available to do free signings at one store or the other.
You can probably guess which of the two will be signing.


January 23rd 2018 Update

An article about Young Tarzan and the Mysterious She was just published on Hollywood In Toto.

Hollywood article


It's an old question of: Who you would visit from the past if you could?
Take that question a step further and ask if you could collaborate with literary giants on their greatest creation, who and what would it be?

Here's Michael Tierney's answer: Young Tarzan and the Mysterious She.
Releases March 2019 in Cirsova Magazine of Thrilling Adventure and Daring Suspense.

The story behind the story of Young Tarzan and the Mysterious She

The Young Tarzan fragment was first hand-written and partly typed by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1930.
It was left unfinished and, after his death in 1950, lay hidden until it was rediscovered in the early 1960s, along with many other "treasures in the safe."
Many well-known writers were offered the chance to complete the story, but there were elements that they considered problematic, and they passed.

In 2005, ERB's grandson, Danton Burroughs, offered me the chance.
I found the problems to be opportunities to explain what I considered to be inconsistencies in the jungle lord's established history.

But on the day of Danton's greatest accomplishment, when he became President of his grandfather's company, Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., there was a fire that destroyed many of his father, John Coleman Burroughs' paintings--some of them lost forever without a record.
Danton tragically died that night of a heart attack.

What I didn't learn until recently was that the fire left ERB, Inc. with no record of the story.
Danton took his knowledge with him, and the fragment was essentailly lost to the company his Grandfather founded.

Fortunately, I still had my digital files, and the original fragment was discovered after the annoucnement of this publication.
Danton had sent it to be transcribed into digital format by Bill Hillman, webmaster of ERBzine.com, who announced this very day that he still has it.

While I was creating the Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Art Chronology, I'd asked current President Jim Sullos for an opportunity to do something with the story.
What I didn't realize until recently was that he thought this was all my creation.
We didn't both put all the pieces together until just a few weeks ago.

That's the story behind the story of Young Tarzan and the Mysterious She.

The title tells you that this is a science fiction story.

It is available now, or you can mail order by clicking this link or the image above.




The Bears of 1812

Cirsova #5

A lost history tale.

The Bears of 1812 features native American legend Sacagawea from the Lewis & Clark Expedition, and her involvement in the War of 1812. As I told the editor; "The stuff you'll think I made up is the stuff that really happened." There were many incredible historical events during that time, and Sacagawea's history easily weaved right into the heart of it.

Shark Fighter

Cirsova #2

Shark Fighter is a tale of horror beneath the deep blue sea, see if you can guess the Wild Stars connection.
It's tenuous, but it is there.
For more information about this issue, visit this link.

Another Cirsova contributor mentioned my Shark Fighter story during his YouTube GeekGab podcast (visit this link).
Check it out starting at the 25 minute mark and continuing through when the host shouts:
"Stop the bus! A guy's fighting a shark!"
"Stop the bus!"
I'll take that review.
"Well written and there is a powerful emotional punch at its core."

"...not light fare, but .... meaty and gripping adventure"

"a grim sort of redemption"

The online magazine Castalia House has run a series of interviews with Cirsova authors, and mine is now online here.

The interviewer, Scott Cole, asked a lot of great questions that covered not just my stories in Cirsova magazine, but also about my Wild Stars comics and books, my experiences as a comic book retailer, and about my Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Art Chronology.


Gods & Service anthology paperback

"Who is God?" is a social science-fiction short story, released December 2019 in the paperback anthology "Gods & Services", edited by R. J. Carter. A mysterious shop appears out of nowhere with a sign that reads Goods & Services, but one of the "O"s has fallen off. The inventory is unusual: lost or forgotten gods who perform services for a price.
