In a crossover event between Burroughs's series, there is a Tarzan story in which he travels into Pellucidar.

Edgar Rice Burroughs was born on September 1, 1875, in Chicago. His father, George Tyler was a distiller and a battery manufacturer. Early in life Burroughs attempted to support his family in a variety of occupations, including railroad policeman, business partner, and miner. None of these proved successful. However, Burroughs had always enjoyed reading adventure fiction and decided to try his hand at writing. His first attempt, written under the pseudonym Normal Bean, sold very quickly and Burroughs' career took off.

Savage Pellucidar is a 1962 fantasy story collection by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the seventh and final book in his series about the fictional "hollow earth" land of Pellucidar.

Title: Savage Pellucidar: ( (Pellucidar Series). Publisher: Ballantine Books. Edgar Rice Burroughs was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1875. After serving a short time in the 7th . Publication Date: 1990. Cavalry, Burroughs was a shopkeeper, gold miner, cowboy, and policeman before becoming a full-time writer.

When David Innes and Abner Perry set out to search for mineral deposits in Perry's newly invented Mechanical Prospectro, they never dreamed of discovering the beautiful, terrifying world of Pellucidar five hundred miles beneath their feet. Cast into a country of fierce fighting men, beautiful women, and vicious beasts, David and Abner take sharply diverging paths. David and his mate, Dian the Beautiful, set out to teach Pellucidar the ways of civilization and succeed in gathering a number of primitive kingdoms into the Empire of Pellucidar. Meanwhile, Abner turns his inventive genius to the science of aeronautics, with dire results for both David and Dian. The seventh and final book in Edgar Rice Burroughs's Pellucidar series, Savage Pellucidar continues the epic story with a masterful blend of action, humor, and suspense.

The book, as all of Edgar Rice Burroughs books, is excellent and a fun read. I am a collector, however, and even though the dust jacket is shown, the book arrived without the all important dust jacket and had to be returned.

This would be a great price for an ERB novel that hasn't yet been available as an e-book, but it is so poorly formated as to be unreadable. If the publisher would take a little more care to format the text properly, then it would be a great product.

"Savage Pellucidar" was the seventh and final volume in the Pellucidar ("At the Earth's Core") series of Edgar Rice Burroughs, which makes it the third longest ERB series behind the adventures of Tarzan and the Martian books. What we have here are three novellas that were originally published in "Amazing Stories" in 1942 ("The Return to Pellucidar," "Men of the Bronze Age," and "Tiger Girl"), along with a fourth ("Savage Pellucidar") that was published later.
"The Return to Pellucidar" has David Innes, the Emperor of Pellucidar, finally settling an old score with Fash, the King of Suvi. "Men of the Bronze Age" actually has to do with their efforts to find both Dina the Beautiful, who flew off in Abner Perry's balloon, and O-aa. This continues in "Tiger Girl," where one of the damsels in distress is rescued, with the other being saved in "Savage Pellucidar" (and Abner planning to make a submarine).
This brings the Pelluicdar adventures, which have taken place over 40 years at the Earth's Core while 150 have passed in the world above, to a close. "Savage Pellucidar" is a below average ERB adventure, following the standard pattern (the hero has to find and rescue the woman he loves), but there is nothing really new in terms of the wonders of Pellucidar. You can put this one in the ERB pot-boiler category.

A paradox, a paradox
We've heard in flocks.
But not quite like this paradox.

Edgar Rice Burroughs died in 1950. The first Hugo was awarded in 1953. Yet one year, a Burroughs story was nominated for a Hugo-- and I do not mean for a "retrospective" Hugo. It competed against a number of modern short stories. How did this come to pass?

In the early 1960s, in the midst of a "Burroughs boom" among book publishers, Burroughs's son Hulbert discovered an unpublished novella in a safe. The story was the fourth of a series of Pellucidar stories that appeared in _Amazing_ between 1941 and 1942. (The others were "The Return to Pellucidar," "Men of the Bronze Age," and "Tiger Girl.")

The new story, "Savage Pellucidar," was published for the first time in the October, 1963 issue of _Amazing_ to a certain amount of fanfare. It was nominated as one of the best pieces of short
fiction for the year. (And was beaten by Poul Anderson's "No Truce With Kings.")

The four stories were assembled into a "fixup" novel in 1963, _Savage Pellucidar_, the seventh and last Pellucidar book. I have a certain fondness for it because of its unusual publishing history. But honesty compels me to say at the outset that it is really not a very good novel. It features Abner Perry, David Innes, Dian the Beautiful, Hodon the Swift, O-aa the cave girl, and the cannibal who is _not_ named Dolly Dorcas as they bumble about from one aimless capture-and-escape episode to another. The villain, Fash, is a bit smarter. But not much. The traps he sets (and which the heroes fall into) wouldn't fool a normal nine year old child.

Sometimes Burroughs compensates for such faults by a kind of mythical, dreamlike dazzle to the setting. But myth is best done with a poker face, and _Savage Pellucidar_ is written strickly for laughs. It does not tap into the world of dreams, and it shows us little that is new about Pellucidar. There is a certain good cheer to the stories that is somewhat mitigating. (They were, after all, written just before World War II, and have the optimism of the day.) But _Savage Pellucidar_ remains the weakest book in the series.
