A classic example of early 20th century American pulp fiction and planetary romance, The Gods of Mars is the second of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom, or Martian, series.
Separated from his wife, Dejah Thoris, and their son, Carthoris, for ten years, John Carter returns to the nation of Helium and his adopted red Martian people. Unfortunately, he materializes in the Valley Dor, The Barsoomian afterlife, from which no one has ever escaped alive. Cannibalism, intrigue, love, betrayal, the evil goddess Issus, and hand-to-hand combat move Burroughs’ narrative from plot-turn to plot-turn in a typical non-stop adventure.
