Wold Newton Universe???

“As you know I am not of Barsoom; your ways are not my ways, and I can only act in the future as I have in the past, in accordance with the dictates of my conscience and guided by the standards of mine own people.” All RPGs based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom stories can be discussed here.

Wold Newton Universe???

Post by Yaztromo »

In this document http://www.pjfarmer.com/woldnewton/Tarzan_Chron.pdf mentioned in this thread viewtopic.php?f=108&t=21961 I found references to the highly literary Wold Newton Universe, that according to Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wold_Newton_family ) is linked to the effects of a meteor that fell on a small Yorkshire village (Wold Newton) on December 13, 1795.

I never heard about this literary construction that links several literary heroes/villains/worlds, but at first it sounds like a great idea!
What d you think?
