This anthology collects A PRINCESS OF MARS, THE GODS OF MARS, and WARLORD OF MARS, the first three books in Burroughs' classic Barsoom series. John Carter, a Confederate veteran of the American Civil War, runs afoul of Apaches while prospecting in Arizona immediately after the war’s end. While attempting to evade pursuit by hiding in a sacred cave, he is mysteriously transported to Mars, called “Barsoom” by its inhabitants. In this exotic, deadly world Carter experiences heightened physical abilities and encounters a variety of beings, including the Tharks, a nomadic tribe of Green Martians, and befriends a mighty warrior and chief, Tars Tarkas. John Carter’s life on Barsoom is filled with political intrigue, battles and near-escapes, loss and joy, and love—in the form of Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium. This anthology collects the first three novels in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ legendary BARSOOM series, rediscovered and reconstructed for 21st century readers. This edition is exclusive to Third Place Books with cover art by Celeste Gomez.
