Philip Jose Farmer’s “Tarzan” TRIVIA CONTEST
Updated 11/20/2014

With the posting of Set Six questions, this trivia contest is over.  Our faithful reader has run out of Tarzan stories by Philip Jose Farmer.  Reviews of all the Tarzan books are in our Voices from the Past.  We hope the questions were enough to challenge you and make it fun. But, since no submissions were received by the due date, this contest is officially closed.  I guess I picked too many obscure titles.  Please click here for the questions.  And stay tuned for future trivia contests.
