I read some ERB Sci-Fi and probably one Tarzan as a kid. i really can't remember them much except that found the style very old-fashioned but that was probably because I was too young to appreciate other aspects.

ERB has been coming to mind recently because of the John Carter film which I would have seen simply for Dominic West but it has had some truly terrible reviews so I might not bother.

Yeah, ERB has always been hit or miss for me. Ive never got into his Mars stuff and never even tried tarzan. His "land that time forgot" was too slow to be interesting. but the "mucker" was good. the best thing ive read by him is "the Monster men" a very cinematic fast paced thriller with a real moral punch, written early in his carreer. If you read anything from ERB read that.
