Celebrate 100 years of John Carter of Mars with this all-new collection of original stories and art!

Readers of all ages have read and loved Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom series since the first book, A Princess of Mars, was published in 1912. Now, in time for the 100th anniversary of that seminal work, comes an anthology of original stories featuring John Carter of Mars in brand-new adventures. Collected by veteran anthology editor John Joseph Adams, this anthology features stories from titans of literature such as Peter S. Beagle and Garth Nix and original art from Mark Zug, Charles Vess, and many more—plus an introduction by Tamora Pierce and a glossary of Mars by Richard A. Lupoff.

Illustrations are by prominent artists Meinert Hansen, Charles Vess, John Picacio, and more.

Don’t miss Mars Trilogy, the companion bind-up of three classic John Carter of Mars stories!

Review: Under the Moons of Mars: New Adventures on Barsoom

User Review  - Jeff J. - Goodreads

A fun, but uneven, collection of stories set in the Mars of Edgar Rice Burroughs. For the most part the stories were faithful to the source material, but I was surprised at a few that had an unflattering characterization of John Carter. Read full review

Review: Under the Moons of Mars: New Adventures on Barsoom

User Review  - Edward Butler - Goodreads

Noteworthy for the originality of so many of the stories here, which explore different perspectives on Burroughs' fictional world, frequently from the viewpoints of its non-humanoid races, subverting the triumphal narrative of John Carter and his allies. Read full review
