Overview

The Gods of Mars was written by Edgar Rice Burroughs and published in 1918. At the end of A PRINCESS OF MARS, the first volume in Burroughs's Mars series, John Carter managed to get the factory that produces oxygen for Barsoom working again and collapsed. When he came to, he found himself back on earth, and separated from his beloved Dejah Thoris, the Princess of Helium. It's a decade later when Carter returns to Barsoom, and he finds himself in that part of the planet that the natives consider to be "heaven" which is no heaven at all. Carter has to reunite with his friend the fierce green warrior Tars Tarkas, fight with plant men and the great white apes of Barsoom, violate some significant religious taboos, survive the affections of an evil goddess, foment a slave revolt, fight in an arena, and still save Dejah Thoris in the middle of a giant air battle between the red, green, black and white people of Barsoom. High adventure, Martian style.

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.
