Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Might it really be possible—in fact and not in fancy—to venture with John Carter to the Kingdom of Helium on the planet Mars?” Carl Sagan
“This is a wonderful scientific romance that perhaps can be best described as early science fiction melded with an epic dose of romantic adventure…Sheer escapism of the tallest order, the Martian novels are perfect entertainment for those who find Tarzan’s fantastic adventures aren’t, well, fantastic enough. Although this novel can stand alone, there are a total of eleven volumes in this classic series of otherworldly, swashbuckling adventure.” Amazon.com Review
“[A Princess of Mars] is arguably the most fun of the eleven Martian tales Burroughs eventually wrote, as almost everything in it is new and strange, from the giant four-armed green Martians to the fantastic six-legged thoats. Tarzan may be Burroughs’ most famous character, but his Mars stories are still widely read.” Library Journal
“When it rains in a Burroughs novel, the reader gets wet.” Jack McDevitt, Nebula and Philip K. Dick Award–winning author
“Pure escapist fantasy/romance, Burroughs was ahead of his time…William Dufris keeps the action steady from beginning to end. Good family listening.” SoundCommentary.com
