Princess Adieu! Gods Hello!

So if you've been paying attention, the first book of the Martian series, A Princess of Mars, is now complete and available here on this site!

And a rousing welcome to Book 2 - The Gods of Mars! (In all honesty, the first three books are really one continuous tale, separated by cliffhangers at the end of books 1 and 2.) Edgar Rice Burroughs was writing for his primary outlet at the time, monthly "pulp" magazines, in which cliff hanging endings of episodes were standard fare to keep bringing readers back for more.

The Gods of Mars was written in 1912, only several months after the completion of A Princess of Mars. In the intervening time, Ed had written two other books - The Outlaw of Torn, and a little gem entitled Tarzan of the Apes. Amazing to consider what can be accomplished in only a few months. So please visit often and enjoy The Gods of Mars as the story unfolds.
