John Carter is the hero of Burroughs' Barsoom series. He first appeared in Under the Moons of Mars (later retitled A Princess of Mars) the story which catapaulted Burroughs into the limelight. It was the first of many novels and several sequels followed over the next three decades, further extending Burroughs' vision of Barsoom.

The world of Barsoom is a romantic vision of a dying Mars, based on now outdated scientific ideas made popular by Astronomer Percival Lowell in the early 20th century. While depicting many outlandish inventions, and advanced technology, it is a savage, 'frontier' world, of honor, noble sacrifice and constant struggle, where martial prowess is paramount, and where many races fight over dwindling resources. It is filled with lost cities, heroic adventures and undiscovered ancient secrets. The series has inspired a number of well known science fiction writers, and also key scientists involved in both space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial life. It has informed and been adapted by many writers, in novels, short stories, television and film.

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!
