Overview

Ambushed in the cold moonlight of an Arizona night, Captain John Carter is inexplicably teleported to Mars, called Barsoom by its inhabitants. Legendary Barsoom—where hostile tribes of towering green warriors roam an arid landscape of dead cities and feuding city-states; where pilgrimages are made to a river of death that conceals a terrifying secret; where lifespans are measured in centuries; and where airships speed through the thinning atmosphere while duels are fought with swords below. Stranded and fighting for his life in a dying, savage world, John Carter embarks on one of the greatest adventures of all time as his destiny and Barsoom’s become one.  The first three books of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s brilliantly conceived Barsoom series—A Princess of Mars, The Gods of Mars, and The Warlord of Mars—are brought together here for the first time. The trilogy follows the saga of John Carter from his unexpected arrival on Barsoom through hair-raising adventures and startling discoveries from pole to pole of the planet.

    Still..A Great Read

    For stories written almost a century ago, these Martian Tales still have the excitement and energy to thrill any reader. I recently purchased this volume because it collected the first three Martian Tales and I was looking for something I knew would be good to read on a longer plane trip. Instead, I started as soon as I got it and stayed up very late to finish them in one sitting. While I have read some great books, these share a spot right at the pinnacle of great reading fun.

    Classic Stuff!

    The idea of publishing the first three of Edgar Rice Burroughs' 'Barsoom' series is a great one, and it's been a long time coming. Burroughs may not have been the most 'literate' writer of all time, but his high-octane prose carries the reader from adventure to adventure breathlessly. Though ERB essentially wrote the Tarzan series for its' popularity and the fat paychecks, his real love was the Mars series, and it shows. Even after all these years, and scores of imitators, the planet Barsoom still comes off more wildly imaginative than any of them.

    Before There Was Luke Skywalker.....

    George Lucas admits getting inspiration for his STAR WARS series from Burroughs' Mars stories, and this is the trilogy that started the whole thing. John Carter, Confederate gentleman and world's greatest swordsman, and Deja Thoris, world's most beautiful woman, meet, and have the greatest adventure of two planets. We keep hearing that the movie is in the works (it has been for 20 years!), but read the books first. Written in 1912, they are the source of every action hero and adventure movie from Tarzan to Indiana Jones and the Highlander. John Carter did it all first.
