Overview

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) was an American author, best known for his creation of the jungle hero Tarzan, although he also produced works in many genres. His first story Under the Moons of Mars was serialised in All-Story magazine in 1912. Burroughs soon took up writing full-time and by the time the run of Under the Moons of Mars had finished he had completed two novels, including Tarzan of the Apes, which was published from October 1912 and went on to become his most successful brand. Burroughs also wrote popular science fiction/fantasy stories involving earthly adventurers transported to various planets, lost islands, and into the interior of the hollow earth in his Pellucidar stories (1915), as well as westerns and historical romances. Along with All-Story, many of his stories were published in the Argosy Magazine. Among his most famous works are: A Princess of Mars (1912), The Return of Tarzan (1913), The Gods of Mars (1913), The Warlord of Mars (1913-14), The Beasts of Tarzan (1914), At the Earth's Core (1914) and The Land that Time Forgot (1918).

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.
