Meet the Author

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875 - 1950) was an American writer best known for his creations of the jungle hero Tarzan and the heroic Mars adventurer John Carter, although he produced works in many genres. Burroughs was in his late 60s and was in Honolulu at the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Despite his age, he applied for and received permission to become a war correspondent, becoming one of the oldest U.S. war correspondents during World War II. This period of his life is mentioned in William Brinkley's bestselling novel Don't Go Near the Water.

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.
