Description

This collection of all-new John Carter of Mars stories contains “plenty of sword work and old-style action-adventure” (Kirkus Reviews).

Ever since Edgar Rice Burroughs published A Princess of Mars in 1912, fans of all ages have marveled at the adventures of John Carter, an Earthman who suddenly finds himself in a strange new world. A century later, readers can enjoy this compilation of brand-new stories starring John Carter of Mars. Collected by veteran editor John Joseph Adams, this anthology features a foreword by Tamora Pierce and stories and original art from titans of literature and illustration such as Peter S. Beagle, Garth Nix, Charles Vess, and many more, plus a glossary of Mars by Richard A. Lupoff.

This book has not been prepared, approved, licensed, or authorized by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. or any other entity associated with the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate.
