Protecting Project Pulp 51: Edgar Rice Burroughs

Main Fiction: “The Witch-Doctor Seeks Vengeance” by Edgar Rice Burroughs, first published in 1919 in Jungle Tales of Tarzan.

Narrator: Nathan Lowell.

As he quenched his thirst, another denizen of the gloomy forest approached the stream along the path behind him. It was Numa, the lion, tawny of body and black of mane, scowling and sinister, rumbling out low, coughing roars. Tarzan of the Apes heard him long before he came within sight, but the ape-man went on with his drinking until he had had his fill; then he arose, slowly, with the easy grace of a creature of the wilds and all the quiet dignity that was his birthright.

  1. Thanks for the opportunity to give Burroughs a voice.

    This was a really hard one to do smoothly because of the language. Between the stilted English from a by-gone era and the smattering of swahili words, it was a challenge.

    I hope everybody enjoys hearing it as much as I did reading it.
