Anyway, there are two of the Martian Stories, John Carter of course, between the covers of one book.
The first book is The Gods of Mars. This story begins pretty much where Princess of Mars left off but it is actually about ten years later and John Carter, the greatest swordsman on two planets, has been sent back to earth were he has fretted the entire time over his true love, the incomparable Dejah Thorris. Ah, Dejah Thorris...probably one of the best known and most imitated characters in Science Fiction. When this book opens, after a brief explanation, John Carter suddenly finds himself transported back to Mars and the adventure continues!
This time he finds he has been dropped into a valley, the Dor Valley, which is the pathway to the dead. This is the river where all good Martians go when their time is finished...they make that one last pilgrimage...to their version of heaven. But of course all is not well and John Carter finds himself almost instantly fighting unspeakable horrid monsters, involved with a race, the `First Born' and finally doing battle with the Gods of Mars themselves. And wouldn't you know it...his beloved Dejah is there, having decided to make the big trip herself!
The book is absolutely nonstop action from beginning to end.Read more ›
