Science Fiction History: 1929 Otis Adelbert Kline and Edgar Rice Burroughs

About the relationship in 1929 between Otis Adelbert Kline and Edgar Rice Burroughs two prominent sci-fi authors.

--1929. Like Edgar Rice Burroughs, Otis Adelbert Kline had 3 names, and he could write like Edgar Rice Burroughs--although not exactly, of course, for Edgar Rice Burroughs has been summed up by L. Sprague De Camp as "a school of writing all to himself." By the '20s, Burroughs had created an immense audience eager for adventures on Mars and Venus involving beautiful endangered native females, horrible villainous monsters, and gallant and muscular earthmen. Burroughs, prolific as he was, could not keep up with the demand. Hence such novels as Kline's The Planet of Peril, which also described Venus. To many people this sort of tale constituted all they knew of science fiction.
