The Martian Series
Edgar Rice Burroughs started writing his Martian adventures in 1911,
and even though science claims there is no life on Mars his stories
remain vibrant and timeless tales, because Burroughs knew the
appeal and power of the Martian myth. Writers like Ray Bradbury and
scientists like Carl Sagan have acknowledged that Burroughs'
Martian tales were the wellspring from which their own careers arose.
With his opening trilogy - considered one of the landmarks of science
fiction - Burroughs created a vast and sweeping epic. Captain John
Carter of the Confederate Army is whisked to Mars and discovers a
dying world of dry ocean beds where giant four-armed barbarians
rule, of crumbling cities, home to an advanced but decaying
civilization, a world of strange beasts and savage combat, a world
where love, honor and loyalty become the stuff of adventure, the world
In eleven books Burroughs takes the reader all around the Red Planet
(and even to Jupiter), while the action and excitement never let up.

Note about A PRINCESS OF MARS: The front and back flap were blank on the McClurg first edition of this
title. I didn't leave anything out when I made this dj; it just wasn't there to put in.
