External Reviews

"If you've never read ERB, this is the place to start. Collected here are the first 3 books of the John Carter series, his best work in my opinion. Fun, fast-paced, always entertaining adventure on Barsoom! ERB had as much influence on later sci-fi writers (from Heinlein to Farmer and beyond) as Verne, Wells or any other writer. Forget the critics, just pick up the John Carter series, and enjoy a new favourite." - Thriftbooks USA.
