Edgar Rice Burroughs - Grandfather of Modern Science Fiction,
By A Customer
This review is from: Princess of Mars (Mars (del Rey Books Numbered)) (Mass Market Paperback)
The first Burroughs book I ever read, _A Princess of Mars_ still has the same power over me now that it did fifteen years ago. John Carter is the perfect hero, Dejah Thoris the perfect princess, and Tars Tarkas is the perfect loyal friend. Edgar Rice Burroughs rightly deserves the title of grandfather of modern science fiction. This is one truly magnificent, timeless adventure.
