Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Edgar Rice Burroughs is a pulp fantasy writer best known for his Tarzan and John Carter on Mars serials. His works contain incredible coincidences, wooden characters, bad science, too many nested flash backs, and excessively virtuous Americans fighting excessively evil whatever. But, he also incorporated and extended contemporary legends such as a hollow earth, canals on Mars, Jungles on Venus, and so on, into his stories. In the process, he further popularized them in American culture. His works also reveal a dark side to ERB's personality, in that they became pessimistic as the carnage of WWII made ERB's worst evil dictators look insignificant. This is most obvious in the later Pellucidar novels.
