"[Edgar Rice Burroughs created] an entire world with a history and variety of cultures on a scale that would not be repeated until J. R. R. Tolkien created Middle-earth." —Mike Ashley 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. A Princess of Mars introduces officer John Carter, transported magically from Earth to Mars and plunged immediately into intrigues embroiling the Martian races. In the following novels The Gods of Mars, The Warlord of Mars, Thuvia, Maid of Mars, and The Chessmen of Mars, 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. This edition of the first five novels in the John Carter of Mars saga is a distinguished new addition to Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features an elegant bonded-leather binding, distinctive gilt edging, decorative endpapers, and a colorful ribbon bookmark. Collectible and durable, these volumes should be the cornerstone of every home library.
