Overview

In the late twentieth century, Admiral Julian 3rd can get no rest, for he knows his future. He will be reborn as his grandson in the next century to journey through space and make an ominous discovery inside the moon; he will live again in the dark years of the twenty-second century as Julian 9th, who refuses to bow down to the victorious Moon Men; and as Julian 20th, the fierce Red Hawk, he will lead humanity's final battle against the alien invaders in the twenty-fifth century. The Moon Maid is Edgar Rice Burroughs's stunning epic of a world conquered by alien invaders from the moon and of the hero Julian, who champions the earth's struggle for freedom, peace, and dignity. The most complete version of The Moon Maid saga ever made available, this edition contains the story as published serially, along with numerous passages, sentences, and words excised from the magazine version or added later by the author. This edition also features an introduction by Terry Bisson, new illustrations by Thomas Floyd, the classic frontispiece by J. Allen St. John, essays by scholar Richard J. Golsan and writer Phillip R. Burger, a glossary by Scott Tracy Griffin, and a compendium of alterations to the text.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These Burroughs titles were released between 1914 and 1923 and both preceded and followed 1917's Tarzan of the Apes, which put the author on the map. They offer more noble savages, as well as some romance, sf, and the usual action that the author is famous for. A few of these books are available in paperback, but the Wildside editions are the only hardcovers on the market. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

i received a different book from the one i thought i ordered. instead of the complete moon maid saga of three books which the website indicated was for sale i received a book that only contained the first of the three book saga on the moon. definitely not worth what i paid for it.
