John Carter of Mars (Library of Wonder)
Interplanetary perils and swashbuckling adventures on the Red Planet await you in John Carter of Mars, a thrilling trio of science fantasy novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Written during the heyday of the pulp fiction era, these bestselling, epic blends of derring-do and dazzling romance permanently remapped the terrain of fantasy and science fiction. Lavishly illustrated by comic art celebrity Thomas Yeates, this new edition brings Burroughs' classic tales vividly to life for modern readers. A Princess of Mars (1912) introduces officer John Carter, transported magically from Earth to Mars and plunged immediately into intrigues embroiling the Martian races. In The Gods of Mars (1918) and The Warlord of Mars (1919), Burroughs elaborates his colorful vision of Mars as a home to fantastic fauna, airborne pirates, and battling tribes of nomadic, four-armed green Martian giants and city-dwelling red Martians.Already a seasoned swordsman, Carter becomes an even fiercer warrior, unfettered by the planet's lesser gravity. Thrust into one deadly battle after another as he seeks to woo the beautiful Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium, John Carter of Mars magnificently meets his destiny as science fiction's first larger-than-life hero.
