#10 is dead, dead wrong. The other nine I knew before I was 13, a long time ago.

Some of #10 is right, isn't it?

Did I mention that my 27th great grandfather was Sigulf Fitzforne, Lord Greystoke (1028-1057)?

Bill, only to the extent that there was an ERB, there was a Tarzan, and there's a Tarzana. The rest of it is baloney.

Bill Crider said...

Well, crud. So much for my cherished believe about how Tarz got his name from the town.

I don't know where these people got their story. Irwin Porges' wonderful, extensively documented bio of Burroughs has the true facts.

I love that book. Been 40 or so years since I read it, though. Time to take another look.
