Danton Burroughs, the grandson of Edgar Rice Burroughs, just died, in Tarzana.
[ Burroughs, who had been battling Parkinson's disease, died of heart failure a day after a fire at his home destroyed a room filled with family memorabilia. ]
Here’s the Burroughs website.
From what I’d heard elsewhere, he’d been working on selling the Mars books as a series for a television network like GRRM did ASOIAF to HBO, or a movie franchise, like Indiana Jones.
I’d quite like to see a good HBO series of the Mars books, done in the style of the period in which they were written. If done well, needless to say.
