Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Including first publication of 'Pirate Blood' - the last thrilling story of the master story-teller, Edgar Rice Burroughs.

The fifth and final adventure of Carson Napier among the exotic peoples and beasts of Amtor is Burroughs' THE WIZARD OF VENUS. Sequel to his fabulous four Venus novels, it is an adventure not to be missed as Napier encounters a new kind of science and a new master of alien deviltry.

PIRATE BLOOD, which is included in this very special Burroughs treat, is something no reader of the Tarzan-Carter-Napier novels will want to miss. Found among his papers long after Edgar Rice Burroughs' death, it is a complete adventure story of excitement, high-pitched action, and derring-do. Its hero, a devil-may-care experi-menter, designs his own aircraft and ventures among the little explored islands of the far seas to find that chivalry still requires the maximum of endurance and the utmost in courage.
