    By Peter Coogan
    The Blade's resident deep-thinker, David Adams, has this to say: "Coogan has attempted to combine every legend in the Western World with Tarzan of the Apes, and the story, if completed, would be dazzling. Conversation with Coogan would leave the average mythographer gasping for air."

    NOTE: Fan Fiction using the trademark "Tarzan" has been been remvoved from this website because of recent hoopla over the issue by ERB Inc. This saddens me. I truly believe ERB Inc. does not get what fanfic is all about. You may as well tell a kid not to give the Tarzan yell when he's playing in his backyard. But...such demands are that company's right. If they wish to enforce it, so be it. Jeff Long. E-mail: jefflong@livenet.net
