Meet the Author

Edgar Rice Burroughs' otherworldly pulp fiction earned him fame and, eventually, fortune in early 20th-century America. Best known for creating the cultural icon Tarzan, he also spun tales about more civilized, but equally high-strung, adventurers traveling to lost worlds and nearby planets. Still loved by readers, and movie producers, today, his unique writing style combined the ever-popular adventure, romance, and science-fiction genres.

More great pulp fun. Anyone who likes the first in this series (A PRINCESS OF MARS) will certainly enjoy this second entry, with the caveat that this ends on a cliffhanger. If you read this book you have to read THE WARLORD OF MARS to find out how the arc begun in this book finishes. I have read a variety of pulp authors. ERB is the best of them, and this is his best work.

In A Princess of Mars, Edgar Rice Burroughs gave us a truly remarkable hero in John Carter. With amazing dexterity for a novice writer, Burroughs left us breathlessly anticipating the sequel at the end of Princess, and here it is. Faster paced because the characters have already been developed than Princess and featuring even more breathtaking venues than its predecessor, Gods is a tour de force of classic storytelling set on a lush alien world. From beginning to end, it's sheer action with some introspection and social commentary (especially on religious hypocrisy thrown in). I can imagine few novels I've enjoyed more and none I've reread as often as this. What's even better is that Burroughs gives us the promise of even more at the end (fulfilled in a sequel he promptly ends the storyline with). I highly recommend this, and to those of you who have never before read Burroughs' Barsoom cycle but are just now discovering it, I envy you. You're in for one of the greatest treats in all literature.
