This bind-up of the first three John Carter of Mars books is an ideal 100th anniversary keepsake.

Ever since A Princess of Mars was published in 1912, readers of all ages have read and loved Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom series. Now, 100 years later, this brand-new bind-up is timed with the release of a Disney feature film and contains the first three classic John Carter of Mars books: A Princess of Mars, The Gods of Mars, and The Warlord of Mars. Featuring an Introduction by Bruce Coville and illustrations from three classic fantasy illustrators—Mark Zug, Scott Gustafson, and Scott Fischer—this collection is an incredible value and will be treasured by existing and new fans.

For being written a hundred years ago, these were good stories. In their original form, most people are going to have trouble with the writing feeling dated but beyond that they are a great fantasy story, worthy of the huge budgeted sci-fi due out in a few weeks. Just like Verne discribed submarine and space travel decades before it actually happened, Burroughs describes a terraforming plant long before the idea became popular. Three decades before the creation of the Man of Steel, Burroughs also set John Carter up like Superman, a man of average abilities becoming a superpowered being because of the conditions on another planet.
