Well the Post Office is about to issue a stamp for one of my early favorite authors, Edgar Rice Burroughs. His books were some of the first that really got me started reading. And, just like Sherlock Holmes, has become an icon of literature (for better or worse). The books are still in print, movies are still being made (neither at the pace of Sherlock Holmes) and most countries recognize Tarzan.
However, the stamp is not as nice as the books. . . . .
