Product Description

About the Author

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) is the creator of Tarzan, one of the most popular fictional characters of all time, and John Carter, hero of the Barsoom science fiction series. Burroughs was a prolific author, writing almost 70 books before his death in 1950, and was one of the first authors to popularize a character across multiple media, as he did with Tarzan s appearance in comic strips, movies, and merchandise. Residing in Hawaii at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941, Burroughs was drawn into the Second World War and became one of the oldest war correspondents at the time. Edgar Rice Burroughs s popularity continues to be memorialized through the community of Tarzana, California, which is named after the ranch he owned in the area, and through the Burrough crater on Mars, which was named in his honour.

Format: Hardcover
The seventh book in the Martian series of Edgar Rice Burroughs, “A Fighting Man of Mars” is communicated to the author via the Gridley Wave (there is something rather quaint about the old convention of having a prologue purporting that what follows is true). Unlike the Tarzan series where ERB put his hero a series of similar adventures involving one lost civilization in the African interior after another, the Martian series offers up a series of heroes who have to rescue the woman they love. The titular character for this endeavor is Tan Handron, a Padwar of Helium who is in love with Sanoma Tora, daughter of Tor Haten, the Umak commander. Tan Handron is descended from a princess of Gatho, which pleases Tor Haten, who is only a minor noble, but Sanoma spurns the young padwar’s love because he is poor. Tul Axtar, Jeddak of Jahar, is also interested in her hand, but before anything can be arranged, Sanoma is abducted by a mysterious flier and the chase is on.
“A Fighting Man of Mars” was originally published in six-parts in “Blue Book Magazine” during 1930 and appears to be rather different from ERB’s earlier Martian stories in that for one the damsel in distress is not a Barsoomian princess. As Tan Handron pursues the woman he wants across Barsoom he encounters some of ERB’s better villains (basically a new one for each installment in the series). As Handron deals with green men and white apes, spiders, mad scientists, and cannibals, he picks up a companion and uncovers a plot that puts all of Barsoom in danger and sets up the big climax.

Considering how long ago this series was written They still stand up as books worth reading. This, like mos oh ERB books is a love story. It is a bit dated and not very PC but it's also a good read. He created a wonderfull world with so much detail you feel like it's almost history your reading and not SF. Please try this series, You don't have to start with A Princes of Mars, the first in the series, but it does make for a better understanding of this complex society ERB created.

Another installation in the Martian series by ERB. How can this fail! Fantastic classic sci-fi or sci-fantasy, Ballantine books print these great covers too. It's worth the postage wait for books from the USA. The second-hand books are so cheap & they're often in better nick than uk 2nd hand. Great stuff!

Wonderful imaginative adventures written to keep you on the edge of your seat. Some words are old fashioned butit was written nearly 100 years ago. Lucas took the ideas for Star Wars from the Martian series books.

It was a good read in an oldfashoned unashamed boys adventure story. It introduced some new charictures whilst keeping the old to drive the plot along.
