The Markers

Beyond the stones lay a world ordered by giants, and they were grim, possessed of little humor.

Edgar Rice Burroughs’ 100 Year Art Chronology (Press Release)


Chenault & Gray Publishing teams up with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc.

Little Rock, AR – April 18, 2017 – Michael Tierney’s Edgar Rice Burroughs’ 100 Year Art Chronology is a multi-volume collection that captures the vast illustrative history of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Chenault & Gray Publishing and ERB Inc. are working together to bring this project to life.

In close to 1200 pages of content, the series explores the art used in the manifold publications of the vast Burroughs body of work for the past century and more, including the novels, comics and pulps! Mr. Tierney has worked hard to collect the art, from multiple sources, that decorated Mr. Burroughs’s work for the past century. From the Boris Vallejo and Neal Adams covers of the Tarzan novels published by Ballantine Books in the 1970s, to the P.J. Monahan covers for the early pulps back in 1913.

Michael Tierney has been a student of the Burroughs material for years. “The Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Art Chronology is not just a nuts and bolts reference book with dates and data -- there is also a narrative, actually several of them. The career and works of ERB and the artists who illustrated him are examined, as well as the histories of the printing, pulp, book, comic, and retailing industries that put them into the hands of readers.”

When discussing the project, Stephen Chenault, of Chenault & Gray, remarked, “Burroughs has been a part of my life since I picked up Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar back in the mid-70s. Burroughs opened up a world of imagination for me…more than a world, a universe. This project is a no brainer. His many stories, from Tarzan’s jungles to the Earth’s core, are a part of the fabric of our culture, making this series both a piece of history as well as a part of popular culture.”

For more information on how you can help bring this project to life, or on the project itself, please sign up for our mailing list here: You’ll receive notifications of the project’s progress as well as unique opportunities to get your copy long before it arrives in book stores!

Chenault and Gray Publishing, the parent company of Troll Lord Games, the proud publisher of a vast array of role playing games, is perhaps best known for their work with Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons. They have been in business since 1999.
