This is a well put together edition of the first three stories in the John Carter series. I read all these books over 40 years ago and enjoyed rereading them all. Can't wait until Volume 2!

How can I determine if I want to buy this book if the "open this book" thing for the web listing takes me to a preview of another edition of the book?! Also, where is volume 3 of this edition (Fall River omnibus)?!!! It is no where to be found on B&N's website!!!! So frustrating!
