Re: Phil Currie and Burroughs?
Right you are Dan. I have to admit, my particular interest in Burroughs was
the "John Carter of Mars" series, I never have read the Tarzan books, just
recall a couple of the circa 1960's comic books. When Phil asked me to do a
"Gryf", he just described what it was compared to Triceratops and I assumed
it was a Pellucidar animal. I recall an image sequence from one of the
comics featuring Pal-ul don with a city / hewn marble fortress populated by
primitive ape people?. . . or was that Planet of the Apes. . . I suddenly
find myself captured in a temporal rift storyline vortex. sucking me into a
black abyss. Aaughhh. . what's happenninnggggg ggg gg gg!
The "Gryf" is found Pal-ul-don somewhere in Burrough's Africa:
Good old Tarzan had not one, but TWO places where he romped with
Pal-ul-don and Pellucidar, a world at the earth's core. This is in line
Burrough's penchant for making things scarier by adding extra pairs of
and arms, as Dave Krentz is dealing with now.
If I remember correctly from the comics, Tarz would hitch a ride behind
frill of a gryf by wacking it's rostrum with a stick and calling out,
"Hoo-EEE!" Hey, I bought it when I was 10.
