A Curtis Warren House Name used exclusively for jungle novels derived from Edgar Rice Burroughs's Tarzan of the Apes sequence; most were sf or fantasy. Under the spelling Marco Garron appeared the Azan the Apeman series beginning with The Missing Safari (1950), including The Lost City (1950), a Lost Race tale, and ending with Jungle Fever (1951) – which so closely mimicked Tarzan that after the first six releases the Burroughs estate was able to gain an injunction banning any further publications. It is possible they were written by D A Griffiths. Writing as Marco Garon (note spelling), Denis Hughes (whom see for details) published a second series, the Rex Brandon novels, sufficiently remote from Tarzan to avoid further legal action. Perhaps accidentally, the last of Hughes's series was bylined Garron rather than Garon. [JC]
