    6 Pages long

    This is a magazine article, it doesn't even count as a short story.

    The ebook has 13 pages. After cover and copyright it's down to 6 pages.

    Those six pages are of the author telling how he watched a restored copy of the Princess of Mars from 1911.

    He liked it.
    Oops, I hope I didn't give away the ending.

    Even at .99 it was a rip off.

    Good story

    I suppose I'm only moved to write a review because I think the earlier one-star was too harsh. Personaly, I find the story satisfying & complete, but not astonishing. Easily worth the 99 cents. It's a short-short, certainly. But for less than the cost of a can of soda it provides an entertaining yarn I'd have bought the author a beer for.

    Excellent Short Story

    Nicely written and creative short story. An interesting perspective of what it would be like if all those old stories were really true...
