The editor's preface states that the first story was written by Burroughs' son. You should know that it is a bit of a different writing style, which the editor describes as juvenile. The overall plot is satisfactory, and I imagine at least some of it may have been suggested by or discussed with Burroughs. It is lacking the strong urge to make new friends among strangers and enemies alike that marks the life of John Carter, but there is a hint of it in his final action toward the giant. We see the end result of some of Burroughs' earlier creations, where they logically lead, and we may imagine that the story could be continued on, and perhaps yet Carter has made a new ally.
The final story takes place mostly on Jupiter, and the editor says Burroughs had intended it to be the start of a series. It does have all the qualities of the foregoing novels. And yes the ending though not final is reasonably satisfactory. You are not left hanging on a cliff.
While Burroughs did not complete the Jupiter series, he did write a three novel Moon series, which is complete, and which follows up on the main idea of the Skeleton Men of Jupiter. I have reviewed that also if you wish to investigate it.
Anyway, the adventures are interesting but never as good as the first!
